Visiting the Life and Photography of Linda McCartney

This was wonderful and just the right and special sort of thing to be the centrepiece of a longed for summer’s day out. I’d had to book, and my ticket said I could turn up any time at the Walker Art Gallery, as long as it was between 10:00 and 10:29am. So by 9:00 I’d […]
