national gallery

In the last two days we spent time in the National Gallery twice, once killing time and the second passing through. It's good to be able to visit these tremendous things in central London so casually. A world-famous image round every corner; we spent most time looking at The Execution of Lady Jane Grey (here it is), which may be my favourite painting in there (there is a small painting of a moated castle in a winter landscape (I think this may be it) which I like a lot but haven't seen for a long time - it used to be in the downstairs room at the back which is only open occasionally).
