Saturday family outing - free comic book day!!

Something of an annual pilgrimage for the Stoddard clan (can't believe it's a year since Ben and Kait were over here!). Logan wasn't too sure about the new-look Orbital Comics, now in the old Photographers' Gallery building near Leicester Square tube, but I was mighty impressed with the gallery area (review of my new discovery to follow later).

We went to Souk for lunch (that's Logan bouncing on the sofas to Europop), part of the same annual pilgrimage. If you haven't been check it out - atmospheric decor (candles, tapestries and shady corners) and really tasty Moroccan couscous and tagines. Logan is a big fan, and made us dance to the music the whole time we were there.

From there we made a quick trip to Topshop (not part of the annual pilgrimage, and as hellish as always - Logan wasn't impressed as you can see!), then popped in to the Photographers' Gallery at its new location on Romillies St, just behind Oxford Circus. They had some really cool photos by Maurizio Anzeri, who takes old, anonymous black and white family portraits and stitches sinister patterns over the top.

Then home again!
