Sisk Family European Vacation: London, Day 3 – British Museum
Day 3 in London apparently produced a lot of photo opportunities (considering I’ve been posting photos from it all week). If you’ve missed any of my previous vacation posts, click HERE – we left off at The London Eye.

Anyways…after grabbing a bite to eat at Wagamama, we took a taxi to The British Museum. Miles was insistent on seeing the Mummy exhibit one more time. I have to admit that it was pretty cool. Unfortunately most of my photos are pretty dark (even with a high ISO setting). I’m kinda curious about what Miles was able to capture with his camera (Kirstin’s camera). Either way, here are some of my better shots from the museum and mummy exhibit.

Miles clearly has photography in his blood – doesn’t he look like such a natural? Much like our adventure on the London Eye, I kept following him around to see what he’d do next.

Unfortunately, we had a train to catch that evening…and Kirstin and Miles needed to go home, so we didn’t spend too much time in the museum. Before we parted ways though, we were sure to take what Kirstin calls a “bench shot.”
The Bench Shot RS
Actually, this is not the original “bench shot” we had in mind. We were originally going to take a photo outside of the London Eye…on one of the benches, surrounded by street performers. In one case, as we were setting up the shot (both of us away from the bench), a couple came over and sat on our bench. We sighed…picked up our bags and kept walking. Not too much further, we spotted another bench. This time, I sat down in the bench as Kirstin set up the shot. For whatever reason, I got up to help her with something and AGAIN…someone came over and sat on our bench. The odds were clearly against our best efforts for the coveted “bench shot.” So…as we were leaving the British Museum, we asked my husband if he would take a picture of us. I really struggled processing the shot as I had to do some cropping, cloning, etc, but I still love the memory.
PS: Google Reader has been acting incredibly weird for me lately…even using the “NEXT” button (it’s reaching the “end of the internet” way too fast). Anyways, if for some reason I don’t visit you…it’s not because I don’t care…I just have issues.

PSS: Please come back tomorrow to see previews from my latest 3 month old portrait session. This baby is such a cutie – you don’t want to miss it!
