National Gallery

I like the National Gallery, though do not visit it often enough. I once created a team quiz which took part inside the gallery and used various aspects of the exhibitions for each of the rounds; that was a fun evening even if I couldn’t actually take part in the quiz myself.

Most of my ‘visits’ there are simply to see it from the outside, like on this occasion. The fountain that you see is from within Trafalgar Square, and though I’ve taken a few similar shots in the past one has never been good enough for me to actually process and post. I liked this one though, as it was still blue hour and I was able to get some movement in both the cloud and the water.

The fountains in Trafalgar Square are pretty aesthetic, however their purpose is to actually break down the area a little, making it harder for mass gatherings and riots to take place.
