Jeff and Steve and I went to the Museum of Modern Art today, mostly to see the Picasso sculptures.
This very early piece that’s almost not a sculpture was perhaps my favorite out of more than 100 pieces.
This orangutan was also kind of fun. Picasso did a lot more with found objects than I remember from art history classes. You can’t miss the toy car….
But here’s the thing. A whole lot of what I saw did not pass the ‘garage sale’ test. Meaning that if I saw this for sale at a garage sale, would I buy it? In many cases, no. I’m a Philistine.
I really love looking at people looking at art, whether that is a stranger…
We did more today. I shopped for a new lens at B & H Camera. I’ve shopped with them online but never in person. Such a cool photography store!!! I got a 14-150mm lens for my new micro four thirds Olympus. I have to stop lens shopping now, darn it!
I baked pies in an unfamiliar kitchen. I think they’ll be good. Jeff cooked dinner and now we are back in our hotel room on 54th Street. Life is mighty fine :-).
As I scrolled thru the blog – the Jeff and Steve photo came up only to their shoulders – it is STRIKING – after taking it in… I scrolled on and only then found that it is a much larger photo…. but cropped I think it is great. On a different note: I am giving my daughter the Ricky photo class for xmas. 🙂
