One of my absolute favourite things to do in London when I have a friend visiting, or just a quiet afternoon to myself is pop along to the wonderful Wallace Collection for afternoon tea and a walk around the peaceful, beautiful galleries looking at lovely things that bring me joy.
I took all of these photographs back in the Summer of 2015 when I took my lovely Mum along for some cake and art. Can you think of a more perfect way to spend an afternoon? I can not.
I am so into the wheat headdress on this sculpted lady (which is part of a MANTLEPIECE?) that it verges on obsession. If you follow me on Instagram and have experienced me story-ing a trip to the Wallace you will already know this. She features heavily.
What I like best about these two ladies is that they are perfectly placed with wallpaper behind them is the most delicious, edible shade of purple. You can’t tell in these photographs of course, which I also kind of enjoy. The colours came out all kinds of strange, but I’m into it.
I think photographing sculptures is my new thing, not sorry about it.
Also this is my crown, kindly on loan because it doesn’t go with my outfit.
Also somehow I always forget there is a secret Armoury downstairs, then when I rediscover it I am like OMG THERE IS AN ARMOURY OF COURSE and my day is made, every time, all over again.

These photographs were taken on good old Kodak Gold 400 using my Minolta 9000, and processed with the help of my friends on Patreon. To become a Patreon Pal, head on over to my page and check out whats happening.
Take Another Museum Tour – they’re really good.
