Lunchtime Sights

We met Andy's sister for lunch today in Mayfair. The restaurant we went to is called The Wolseley and is lovely. I have not been there before. It is very grand but not at all stuffy, and not really expensive either. I didn't take pictures as it seemed the wrong thing to do but there are lots on Google images. Afterwards we wandered around for a bit. Andy looked in the windows of lots of posh clothes, hats, shoe and shaving shops and I looked up. There is currently an exhibition in central London and Canary Wharf called Lumiere, with lots of light installations around the place. I saw a bit on the news the other night, and this hanging man was on there. I think he may be a tightrope walker.  I like him and his other chicken wire companions in the daylight too. 







 




                                                       A bit of street corner heraldry.

Love this sign!
 Andy spotted the stuffed cat in the hat in the hat shop. I didn't get a very clear picture though. 


 
  Beautiful mosaic patterned dome. 

 More lights. 
 Fairy castle turrets. I think this was on Regent Street but it may not be.

lovely photos.It makes living in a small North Wales market town seem so very dull!

I went to see the Canary Wharf display (which I think is separate from the Soho one) but I haven't yet seen these Lumiere sculptures. Hoping to get there this evening, or at least some time this week!

Love those wire men! Sometimes, I think it would be great to live in London. Ros x
