Kew Botanical Gardens

The rest of this weekend consisted of a ton of work! But today Laura and I decided to take a little bit of time off to hit up another attraction in London we’ve been wanting to see. We spent the entire afternoon at the Kew Botanical Gardens. I could have stayed there all day long, everything was so beautiful. I took 54 pictures and can’t hardly post them all here, these are just a few of my favorites. Here I am hugging a redwood tree, I’ve just always wanted to do that.
One of the winding stairwells in the temperate house. All the flowers and vegetation here were beautiful.
A whole pond with lilly pads and
The picture below is me standing on the Rhizotron, a big platform up above the trees so you can see out over the entire botanical gardens.This picture looks sort of funny as I altered it with my camera. There is a function where I can just choose to accent some colors, I think it is probably my favorite picture I took all day.The Bird of Paradise.
Here I am being trapped by a dragon…even better than this picture are the pictures of me trying to get back out from under the dragon. It was more difficult than getting in by far.
This picture is from Saturday. For a class project in Editing and Design last semester I had to design a feature newspaper layout. The feature I choose was on a graffiti artist in London named Banksy. He does some very neat and controversial work, I made a trek to find some of his artwork and so far I’ve found this one. Hopefully more later this work. (CCTV is the surveillance they have here all over the city, they say my picture is taken more than 600 time per day here. Yikes!)
