Today is... monochromatic

Today was mostly monochromatic.  As I wandered the hot, hazy, summery city, I saw lots of black, white, beiges and greys.

I spent the morning visiting the Matisse exhibition at the Tate Modern, which was definitely not monochromatic; I loved his bold use of primary colours. Afterwards, I sipped my decaf latte in the Tate cafe and made lists of all the things I need to accomplish this week. 

Don't you just love this view of the Thames river and St. Paul's Cathedral in the distance?   

That's a little glimpse of my part of the world.  How was your day today? I'd love to know! Is there one word you could use to describe it? 

P.S. And don't forget to join the One Picture, Three Stories linkup! There's still time before the first week of August to get your ideas brewing!

  1. Definitely lazy. First proper day of the school holidays and I've done nothing but a few loads of washing and lots of blog reading. Bliss! I'm hoping to visit the Matisse exhibition very soon - it looks amazing! x

  2. Wet!

    It started with a swim which was followed by a long shower. It's also solidly raining here.

    Later it'll become more wet as I bake.


Hearing from you makes my day bright with sunshine. I try to respond to each comment on your own blogs. Who knows I might make a few new friends along the way! X Jane
