The Getty

While in LA for the October Shadows party, we had one afternoon to explore. We headed out to the Getty museum and thought that would be good for an hour or two...we ended up spending nearly 4 hours there.The collection was great and the presentation is amazing. It’s a series of smaller buildings and gardens that you wander in and out of. It helps cut down on the museum fatigue tremendously when you can walk outside every forty minutes, let your eyes rest, play on various fountains, lay on the grass (or whatever strange mossy substance that passed for grass), and then go into the next building refreshed.

Besides their regular collection they had a large exhibit of Edward Weston photos. Funny, I never seek of photography but when I run into it, I often really enjoy it.

The museum was our only set plan but we got the idea o have a late lunch in Santa Monica...until the Pacific ocean proved too tempting so, instead, we dipped our toes in the water, grabbed some pizza, and headed out to the party.

I’m going to be lazy and not attribute any of these photos.

During my brief and unhappy sojourn in Southern California, a trip to the Getty was one of the few high points.
