Southwark Walk

In London I just walk & walk. After my Tower of London experience I crossed the Thames via Tower Bridge into Southwark & kept on walking..

Time to worship in my cathedral of choice – the Tate Modern. This time in the turbine hall I experience the big box by artist Miroslaw Balka. It is just that – a big steel box, with no light inside, just black velvet lined walls. You walk into the dark abyss. It was brilliant. Can you stop yourself before you crash into something or someone?

Looking heavenward.
