Recommended Posts

We went to some of the local musuems this weekend and I took abunch of snapshots.

Most of the pics arn't that good but some might find interesting, I did. The biggest problem was the lighting but having the object in case in plexiglass didn't help either.

 

The internet having a strange effect on all us all, at least it does for me, its like an extended family. I was reading the thread about "dolls" and of course there was an exibition on dolls at one musuem! so I immediately thought of everyone here on the forum! Interesting.... I'm out having a wonderful time with my family and I start thinking of people I've never met!

 

 

anyway, not sure if I should post pics or links?

 

this was cool to see this sign, Now I wish we all were there instructing each other on different points of view, can you imagine gained insight?

I think I'll stop here to get feedback on just posting links to save you loading time.

I have about 17 ready to link to so far, including a couple japanese knife handles!

Yes, the garden was so peaceful, they had a gallery of kamonos? with huge ceiling to floor windows/wall over looking white gravel and bonsi trees and rocks next to a drop off into a green canyon.... I liked it.

 

heres something I've never seen before. The artist took a trees and debarked them and then sliced them paper thin and restacked them! it felt weird when you thumbed them. He had them in different shapes, even hanging them
