Tate, Thames, Tea

Another week, another gallery. This week I was greeted by the large scale walls of an old power station, The Tate Modern. The prominent landmark is located in a prime photography hotspot, Southbank, a stone’s throw walk away from London Bridge station.

The spacious gallery is brimming with inspiration, from its grey-toned architecture to its contrasting vibrant art. The walls are occupied by famous names known to the domestic and international art scenes; from impressionism to abstraction, from cubism to pop art, from Roy Litchensien to Andy Warhol. What’s better is, each floor is coordinated by theme.

Unknown to many, the Tate offers a brilliant view of the millennium bridge and St Paul’s. Once I reached the 3rd floor, I headed straight to the balcony behind the gift shop, for a little fresh air and gratifying view. But now I hear after the large expansion project there is a lot more outdoor view to see; a must for my next visit.

Apart from the art and the open balconies, I adore the sun rays that enter in style through the large windows of the Turbine Hall. A great spot for a short photo shoot.
