On the Hunt for Curiosities

Curiosities. One of my favourite words and one that brings up many different associations. Cabinets of curiosities were small “wonder rooms”, a bit like museums, objects that were considered extraordinary or aroused interest. It makes me think of suspicious objects in jars, strange skeletons, misshaped animals and unknown rocks. As a heads up, I will claim creative license and apply the term to anything that I find curious and interesting. Which is basically everything. Sorry.

Kelvingrove museum is a beautiful building with an intriguing mix of items and I love just walking through with no aim at all. These are some old photos I found from one afternoon spent strolling through the museum in search of the weird and inspirational.
