David Bowie is…

In April of 2013 I decided to take a trip to England. I’ve been referring to this trip as the B4 trip, Birthday + Brother + Bowie + Britain = Brilliant, as I decided to spend my birthday this year with my twin brother who lives in the south of England and to also treat myself to a ticket to the David Bowie is Exhibit in London. The slide show below begins at the V&A Museum in London and takes a brief visit to Heddon Street, London, the photo shoot location for the iconic Bowie Album ‘The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars’. On the way we pass through the Tube Station near the museum and a few… a lot… of David Bowie is posters.

Here’s a couple of photo illusions I created while I was in London. I kept it a secret that I went to England that year until I came home, so when I posted these and a couple of other illusions, no one knew I was there and just assumed that even the location was part of the illusion… can you spot what’s real and what’s not?

The London exhibit closed in August and headed off on a world tour and the first stop was Toronto. Being so close, I had to go for a second visit. The show in London was really amazing, the Toronto show though seemed a bit like a square peg in a round hole, it was still great, but not as well organized as London. It’s well worth seeing if you’re a Bowie fan, it’s going to be in Toronto until November 27th, then it’s on to Sao Paulo, Brazil…

 

UPDATE: (5.8.15) I took a 2 month sabbatical, if you will, travelling to Greece and the U.K. I asked my daughter Caitlin to join me for part of the U.K. trip and said she could pick any place in the world, that she’d like to go at the end of our adventure, she chose Paris… yep, you guessed it… David Bowie is was in Paris from 2 March to 31 May 2015 at the Philharmonie de Paris. I DID NOT coax her to choose Paris!
