Inspiration Galore

Today was another day filled with adventure. We started our day off with a visit to London’s wax museum. I have to say that originally I was not excited to go, but once we started to go through the museum I was pleasantly surprised. My favorite exhibit in the wax museum was the royal family, it was cool to see what they’d look like in person since we won’t get to see them in person while in London.

For the second part of the day we went to the British Museum. Our professors had warned us in advance that there was no way we’d make it through the whole museum, and prior to arrival I thought they were exaggerating. But I have to say that I have never seen a larger museum in my entire life. It was so surreal to see works of art in person that I’ve spent the greater half of my college experience learning about. I don’t have any photos of the museum in this post because I wanted to focus on being present in the moment while at the museum. There are thousands of photos online that I can easily reference, but being in the presence of those works again is not as easy to relive. I hope to go back to the British Museum again over the course of our trip, because there is still so much that I did not get to see. I’m still in awe thinking about it.

While in the museum bookstore I found the book photographed in this post in the bookstore. I was really happy to find it because I’ve been looking for some good historical references to refer to when researching for my senior studio thesis, where I plan to create my own tarot deck. Over all today was full of inspiration. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the trip has to offer.
