I spent most of yesterday at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I’m exhausted and I still barely scratched the surface of that place. I was mostly in the European Paintings wing (post 1800). But I got around to all the exhibits. Including the Chinese costumes in the basement and the new Van Gogh paintings (that they did not let me photograph) and Visible Storage. I loved Visible Storage. I could have spent the entire day down there.
I have pictures from inside the museum and pictures from outside. Pictures with people and pictures without. A few artsy. A few abstract. And a bunch from Visible Storage. Have I mentioned how much I loved Visible Storage? It’s just shelf after shelf and case after case of stuff they didn’t have room for upstairs. I walked for miles and miles and my feet, they hurt like hell. But I had a great time and I’m going back… just after I let my feet heal a bit.
I ended the day with 329 photos. I cut that down to sixty; Forty good ones and twenty extras that I just wanted to post. So my trip to the Met will be a trilogy. Part one will be my favorite pics from the day. Part two will be the much-anticipated sequel. And part three will be like all part threes; not nearly as good as the first two, seemingly directed by a different person, and featuring a high-priced star who’s just phoning it in by that point.
And as is always the case… I didn’t learn a damn thing.
My poor feet.
To the pics.
That’s it for now.
