Making Up is Hard To Do

Making Up is Hard To Do

Making Up is hard to do when you’re traveling on a train.  Going from Penn Station to visit the FDR museum in Hyde Park, NY is a beautiful ride.  Heading up the Hudson River to Poughkeepsie takes less than 2 hours.  From there, you catch a dedicated city bus to...

Street preachers displaying their interpretive Image of The Beast near Seattle’s Pike Place market.  A wonderful place to visit with tremendous opportunities to capture street images. What caught my attention was the advertising display directly behind the...

Archer at the Legion of Honor

I love to roam through museums not only for the beautiful art, but for the juxtapositions created by visitors. Viewing what is on display (be it sculpture, painting, or photography) along side museum-goers, can transform your museum experience. Klimt and Rodin were...
