Facing London

The cover, the chaos, the hollow sympathy of the architecture, the Tube lines snaking underground. London can swallow you up, in a good way.
― Emma Jane Unsworth.

In the morning mist, hazy and amorous, London was delirious. London squinted as it floated along, milky pink, without caring where it was going.
― Yevgeny Zamyatin

From all the thousands of famous faces in the Mational Portrait Gallery (some of them men), these stood out:

Actress and artist Pauline Boty

Social maven Lady Ottoline Morrell

Writer Beatrix Potter

Painter Natalie Denny

Actress Ellen Terry

Queen Victoria

Queen Mary I and children

Actually a figure captured in the Hampstead Jazz Lounge of no real renown.

About Joy Hendrickson

I am an adherent of the theory that we don't know what we don't know. I enjoy all things literary, visual, mysterious, and just beyond our grasp.
