The House of Commons,1833 / Busts (Weekend Reflections # 502)

London, England

In this part of the National Portrait Gallery the walls are reflective in the space that divides the rooms.

I don't know who these people were but they were obviously important enough to have their busts still displayed centuries later. I did notice that the women were placed above the men. I wonder if there is any significance?  

Happy Mother's Day!

An excellent reflection. I know the oil of the House of Commons but couldn't tell you who the famous busts are

Oui cet effet est très beau et la composition tout à fait harmonieuse. Je me souviens m'être trouvé moi aussi à cet endroit

google took over my comment, so I'll try again.
A great and classy reflection! May be they place the female above the males because the features are dainty-er?

Love this. And agree, curious about the woman. Also, my photos are light reflected on surfaces, not images. Do they count?
