Visiting the V&A Part 1

If you're in London, the Victoria and Albert Museum should be the number 1 museum on your list.

This place has incredible textiles, a mindblowing cast collection (more on that later) and lots of other unexpected gems. One of them is the wrought iron gallery, not usually the first place I would head to in a museum.

These wrought iron - sculptures (for want of a better word) - are incredible. Incredible.

So delicate, yet sturdy, black yet somehow feminine. I couldn't stop taking photographs, but will spare you the thouands, and just leave you with this one.
