Not a natural coupling, you might think,
Daniel Craig and The Pre-Raphaelites
BUT between them they wowed 24 hours of my life.
I was hooked
from the opening scene through
to the beautiful opening credits and
all the way to the very last minute.

It really is Bond at its best,
(and I think this really is THE best Bond film)
with a nod and a wink to its past -
but this was a much more modern
(and believable) version.

Stylishly directed by Sam Mendes
and starring, amongst others,
and the brilliant
GO AND SEE IT!
Next, a linking photo of Hope
in front of the MI6 building in London,
which is where we were today.

After Hope had her teeth braces
removed this morning
she and I popped up to London to visit
|(Ophelia by Sir John Everett Millais)|
I am a HUGE fan of this style of artwork
so this was an absolute MUST SEE for me!
|(Lady Lilith by Dante Gabriel Rossetti)|
I L.O.V.E.D. it!
SEVEN huge galleries STUFFED with
drawings, paintings, sculptures and furniture.
I wanted to roll on the floor and scream with
over-excitement (I didn't though).
|(The Scapegoat by William Holman Hunt)|
At one point I stood in a gallery and did a
360 degree turn just taking in all the artwork.
I could hardly believe the number of beautiful
world famous paintings that were hung
in that one room.
|(Take Your Son, Sir by Ford Maddox Brown)|
I've got such happy memories
from the last 24 hours **sigh**.
Thank you for dropping by!
