This is a picture of one of the arches of the Natural History Museum.
The Natural History Museum seems like a place to explore architecture photography except that there were barriers everywhere at the time I visited and the lighting produced very horrible color casts (which have been removed in this image).
It is not quite visible here at this small size but the roof of the building feature many relief sculptures of flora and fauna, with living and extinct species featured within the west and east wings respectively.
(though I am not sure if this is the east or west wing).
The Natural History Museum is one of three large museums on Exhibition Road, South Kensington, London (the others are the Science Museum, and the Victoria and Albert Museum). Its main frontage is on Cromwell Road.
The museum is home to life and earth science specimens comprising some 70 million items within five main collections: Botany, Entomology, Mineralogy, Palaeontology and Zoology.
The museum is a world-renowned centre of research, specialising in taxonomy, identification and conservation. Given the age of the institution, many of the collections have great historical as well as scientific value, such as specimens collected by Darwin.
the picture below is the mineral room on the first floor at the Natural History Museum; behind me is The Vault where the more precious stones such as diamonds are kept. The Vault is worth a visit but photography isn’t allowed in there.
