Was exactly the same as usual! The only difference we noticed was that there was a helicopter that kept circling overhead, and we saw more police dinghys on the Thames. Other than that (despite some news outlets saying that we are all falling to pieces and there is fear on the streets....!), it was just as usual with loads of tourists getting in the way and everyone getting on with their usual business.

Mr Cee and I have been to an exhibition today all about DC Superheroes made of Lego. We really enjoyed it - it was put together by Nathan Sawaya, some of you may remember that we saw an exhibition of his before in 2014.

All photos get larger with a clicky.
As a temporary exhibit, the outside was in an old car park. Funky graphics on the outside though!

I love the models. Here we have the Flash in 3D with a semi 3D version behind. You can see how brilliant he is with giving life to the models when you view the Flash from the side....

This was huge - Green Lantern's hand.

I liked that there were also 3D versions of classic comic covers.

There were loads of models of the DC heroes. I'm glad there were small captions as some of them I was unfamiliar with.

Superman! This model was amazing - full sized and suspended from the ceiling...

There were some quirky ideas too. I liked this one - a little model, but a great idea...

Another 3D panel...

Half sized aquaman swimming...

There was some nice detail on the models too - note the lit up ring on Green Lantern's hand

Bizarro superman looks in the mirror and sees Superman.....

I loved this one - a comic cover transposed onto the cape of the Caped Crusader himself....

There were giant heads too! Superman, with Green Lantern in the background.

There were a lot of recreated 2D comic book covers too. This one of the joker was one of my favourites as was the Green Lantern.

The ladies were represented.  Diana Prince/Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn - shown in monotone...

This model was representing the superhero in all of us and was child sized. I love how he can inject life into the models.

There were loads more models, but I don't want to bore everyone!

It took us around an hour to look at everything and the exhibit finished in the shop (of course!), where we were rather annoyed at the mark up on the lego toys...

The exhibition was near the National Theatre on the South Bank, so we were blown across the river in the high winds (which were freezing today!) and decided to have lunch in Jamie's Italian near Covent Garden. Then we went to look in Forbidden Planet, but though the wonders of the internet (where we compared prices) we decided everything was far too expensive to buy in there too, so we came home and got in around 2pm. We have been chilling out the rest of the afternoon as we did a lot of walking.

I have belly dancing later - I think I'll be sleeping well tonight!

And on to the next question in the meme: 11: what's an inner joke you have with your friends? Does quoting movie dialogue count? Mr Cee and I were doing that all around the exhibition ;)
