One of my teenagers and I visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Manhattan recently. We finished viewing the Matisse exhibit and came across an exhibit of contemporary furniture and design. I was taken by the patterns and textures. Hon, hope you are, too.
I spotted the horses and carriage at The Sagamore in Bolton Landing, New York and had to grab my camera. I’ve posted the photo of the Central Park hansom cab before (see Weekly Photo Challenge–Circles) but, hey (hay?) the photo goes with the “Carriage Horses” post. (And I still think it’s romantic!)
The Weekly Travel Photo Challenge on the blog Where’s My Backpack is Circles. Thanks to Michael Lai, Retireediary (all the way from Hong Kong), for sharing his photos with me. Here are my additions to the challenge.
Waiting to take the elevator up to the Top of the Rock at Rockefeller Center, NY I stood directly under the massive chandelier and circular staircase. I love that it looks like it’s raining crystals.
Hansom Cabs in Central Park conjure romance. The clip-clop of a horse’s hooves reminds us of days gone by.
Patterns that contrast manmade materials with nature intrigue me.
Hon, the bright yellow circular entrance to the tunnel was so inviting I would have followed right behind if I could fit!
One of my triplets is an extremely talented artist. (Hon, she’s my daughter and this is my blog so I’m allowed to crow.) She painted this when she attended a summer program at New York University’s Steinhardt School of Art. I love the vibrant colors and varied texture of her painting. The swirling hair creates movement while balancing the girl’s face.
In the Northeast, we are in between Autumn’s feast of colors and Winter’s crystal jewel box. Hon, here’s a shot of color. Call it a purple pick-me-up.
