It's absolutely pouring down with rain here- and we've been told to expect a months rainfall today. So I won't be venturing far today. Nothing in my house is particularly modern unfortunately- so I've included the thing that always springs to mind when I hear the word. Selfridges is an example of modern architecture and it sits alongside a gothic church- a very unusual pairing. Selfridge splits opinon- as it is so 'out there'. It's covered in thousands of metal discs that look like hub caps. From the other direction it can look like a whale (I think)- the windows look like eyes. I think it's quite iconic and although I rarely venture inside I would be tempted to have a coffee on their balcony on a sunny day. It's fairly empty in the photo as it was taken last Sunday at 6.20am!
The only modern thing I can think of in our house is my kindle. I have to say that it had an uphill struggle with me- I was positive I wouldn't like using it. But now that I have lots of new best sellers on it I actually find that I reach for it first and find it much more comfortable to read just before I go to sleep!
