Every museum in the world should have an Ability Guidebook as far as I’m concerned! I’ll put that on my to-do list. Until then, here’s one for the British Museum!
And in honor of their amazing staff, I want to share a little story. While Mike and I were visiting a young lady went into a series of grand mal seizures. While I timed the seizures the security guard laid down on the floor and used his body to protect the young lady from hitting any of the sharp edged cases. It was quick thinking on his part and the museum staff worked quickly to clear the area and get supports there for the young woman. Kudos to the staff of the British Museum.

Few buildings have as much history as St Paul’s Cathedral.

I wish we had had time in London to get more pictures but we only had a day and half. I’m thankful Mike is willing to stand in when I can’t get shots with the general public in them. Sometimes the scale of the room is necessary to give a real idea of the space you are about to enter. Nothing shows that better than a person. Without a model you have to wait ages to get a picture with just the right person to wander into the shot, at just the right angle and at just the right moment.
As a rule I try to get pictures with no faces in them but it is not always possible. Often I will blur people out but that in itself is usually a bad choice. Modern computer screens can be huge and a blurred-out face can be kind of scary on a big screen. Since my goal is to familiarize people with a destination, the last thing I want to do is scare them with a blurry ghost face!
St. Paul’s does not currently allow photography inside so I am very thankful to the photographers who share their photos on Wikimedia Commons.
Hello Great Britain! I am thrilled to present London’s first Ability Guidebook, I Am Going To The New Tate Modern Viewing Level!
