And other exercises in surreal grocery. My V is great - not only did she do my week's shopping, she left it to greet me like this. On Sunday we went to the Surreal Things exhibition at the V and A. I can only imagine what the Freudians would have made of the marigold man, but she claims to have found him like that.

Oops. Cannot take responsibility for random laughing injuries I'm afraid.

Factotum, the "ceci n'est pas" post a couple of days back was from the special shop at that exhibition.

They'd done out an archway really well by decking it out in a bendy mirror with bowler hat and moustache print.

The V&A; are very good at merchandising their exhibitions. Too good in fact - my gripe with them is that they charge £9.50 entry to the special exhibitions then try to fleece you for £60 for a silk scarf or £95-£115 for a trompe l'oeil art-studenty layered t-shirt affair.

OJ says:

Not sure. I think the feet shot might have been....

Is that a suggestion Joe?

Joe says:

well I've always been a fan of the more abstract side of photography, though one would never presume to influence the work of an artist :D

OJ says:

Heh heh.Yeah me too. I think I may also have formalist tendencies. All that repetitive brickwork that no one else want to see :)

Strictly speaking this is V's artwork. I am but a recorder....

V is indeed a star. Nourishment with amusement. That could be the motto for a great eatery. Or perhaps a recipe for disaster- people may choke. Am going to add formalism to my list of things to read about when I have time Factoum. Fans? You mean friends? FF - best place for the marigolds. Ie. Not doing housework.
