Do Not Adjust Your Set

On a wet and cold (7 degrees) bank holiday in London, the Tate Modern has considerable appeal.

The Tate Modern is challenging - a lot of the pieces might leave you wondering, "couldn't a five year old do better?" but then, you find that they made you think... and isn't that the point of art - to make you see the world in a different way?

So I could have left you with Rodin's kiss, some challenging African art, a bit of Lichtenstein, but here is a shot of a room that just makes you want to leave.

Did you have to do some clandestine work to get your shot? When I was there in March, I was asked to put my camera away! Despite that, I enjoyed my visit to the Tate Modern very much.

Great building, though.

An interesting graphial photo of a modern facade.

I had the same thought as beth, how did you get these pictures??
I remember when I was there, they had a wall of propoganda from WWII, and I tried to take a picture and they told me to stop. Although I do have that ONE picture now :)
I love the "bit of Lichtenstein" one!

I love the Tate Modern! Did you saw the room with Mark Rothko's work?

Beth, Olive - yes I was naughty, wasn't I? ;-)

April, it's a work of art. A room where all four walls are in this eye-bending pattern.

Bleeding Orange - yes. I found it very interesting. My initial reaction wasn't that positive, but if you sit a while they become very moody and your mind creates images. (For those that don't know, Rothko has a room with 9 (?) very large abstract canvasses.)
