Having spent a day at the British Museum some years ago, I was anxious to return. Unfortunately, with only a weekend in London, I had to pick and choose where to go and what to do very carefully. I decided to spend my time photographing this impressive atrium.

|The ceiling grid throws unusual shadow patterns on the walls and floors.|
|Walking up the stairs of the central column is like straddling two worlds of stone.|

|It's not often you get to photograph the tops of columns.|
Once everyone started to fill the museum, I concentrated on individual pieces on display inside.
|A Chinese porcelain tile panel.|
|Assyrian bas relief sculpture with beautiful cruciform text.|
|A Roman nobleman looks out across the atrium.|
|Great opportunity for practicing portraiture.|
