Long Queues 4 Banksy Versus Bristol Museum.

The queue for Banksy Versus Bristol Museum is very long.
Here is a panoramic photograph taken from the opposite side of the street from the museum on Queens Road, 06/08/09. The exhibition continues until the end of August. I didn't visit the exhibition on the day I captured this image of the queue as it snakes up University Road. I went back the next day, 07/08/09 and queued for one and three quarter hours before it opened at 10 am. I was 14th in the queue, I met two lovely people, Andrew and Dave from Bristol. We talked about anything and everything to pass the time. I saw families who had brought their own fold-a-way chairs to sit on. Coach loads of people arrived. I wonder how pleased Banksy and Bristol must be about the success of the exhibition in terms of the body count?

I was impressed and delighted by the content and range of his work. I got some ace photos. There are some classics and some funny twists hidden around the museum and galleries. One of my favourites has to be the chicken nuggets. Happy queueing!
