I was early for my mid-week shift at work today, so walked along to the National Gallery to burn time. These were my picks of the flying visit:
 Ulyssess deriding the Polyphemus - Homer's Odyssey, Turner, 1829
The Immaculate Conception, Diego Velazquez, 1618-19
Water Lilies, Setting Sun, Claude-Oscar Monet, c.1907
Maybe a slightly random choice of paintings, certainly chronologically, but I enjoyed them nonetheless.
Also of note:
Mini ballet shoes at a Dance shop on Cecil Court
Poor George Peabody, sporting a cone hat which he definitely didn't put there himself. (The guy in the yellow jumper was furious).
