Libeskind zigzag

Most recent find of floaty pens was at the Jewish Museum in Berlin.  The red zigzag represents the shape of the museum, which was designed by architect Daniel Libeskind.

Freudian slip

A visit to Freud's London residence in Hampstead revealed a cache of floaty pens.

Sigmund Freud only lived in London for one year before his death, but his daughter Anna lived on afterwards in the house at 20 Maresfield Gardens.

Freud's famous couch is on show and the chair he sat on out of view of his patients.

This is the exterior of the house.

I would have loved to buy some Freudian slippers from the gift shop.

There were some interactive displays in the house. On this table were a lot of pencils that needed sharpening.

One of the interactive assignments was to try and guess what Freud would have said about some of the work of artists on show in the house.

Horrible Trenches rat

This one is from the Imperial War Museum in London, commemorating the rat-infested trenches during the world wars.

Jewel Tower

Looks like I should rephotograph this pen. Very out of focus. I bought it in the Jewel Tower across from Westminster and it is a historical timeline with a gang of people representing different stages of history floating in it.

Shakespeare's Mum's place

This purchased in Stratford-Upon-Avon, Shakespeare's birthplace. Arrived at the train station and the employees couldn't say how to get to his house. Pretty funny.

Snapped the picture above before getting told off by the people in his house.
