Today, we started off at the NY Metropolitan Museum of Art. We spent most of the morning touring the huge Egyptian wing. Amazing stuff. Afterwards, we took in the Jasper Johns show. I wish I could afford his work - I just love the way he puts paint on canvas. The work on display was all gray - no color. I’d have loved to see his color work, but I guess you can’t have everything. We probably saw less than 1/4 of the Met so we’ll definitely be back. It’s an amazing place.
Oh… I almost forgot to mention all the Rodin sculptures. That’s the guy that I want to do my bust. They even have his famous “The Thinker” statute there.
After taking in the Met, we took the subway to Union Square then walked up to the Flatiron building. Here’s a shot of its less famous side taken just after sunset.
For anyone who’s followed my landscape work, you’ll know that I love photographing trees. It’s kind of like shooting portraits for me. I especially love them when they’re missing their leaves - something that doesn’t happen a whole lot in Southern California. So, shooting in a place like NYC in the winter is a treat for me.
This shot was taken with my back to the Flatiron building. That’s the Empire State Building just to the left of the sign in the foreground.
That’s it for now. I’ve got tired feet so I think that means we’re taking a cab to get dinner.
