Vampire !

02Feb10

A day in Newcastle with a visit to the Laing Gallery to see the “No Such Thing As Society” exhibition (which was excellent and featured a number of Martin Parr photographs – which was particularly pleasing as I had missed his Parr World exhibition at the Baltic because of our delayed arrival) and “Parking Prohibited” an exhibition at The Biscuit Factory (which was  rubbish (sorry),  especially after walking  across town in the snow).

The highlight of the day for me though was finding the famous vampire rabbit – no one know’s why this somewhat odd figure of a fanged rabbit sits above the ornate doorway of solicitors’ offices on Amen Corner, behind St Nicholas’ Cathedral, but I’m glad it’s there whatever.
