V&A Hidden Riches


Of course the V&A building is a fabulous exhibit in itself. Here is a piece without refurbishment, trapped above the ceiling of an exhibition hall. To me the combination of riveted steel, Victorian ornament and dusty, rusty colour is quite beautiful.
Very steam punk.
I've walked past the little window revealing it before, but yesterday the sun was shining. A security guard seeing me trying to get a good view unlocked the door for me and even held my lens cap.

Perfect. What a find - and a helpful security guard too!

This is gorgeous! Now I definitely need to go back to the V&A.
