BMA

Gateway to the Courtyard

As Summer 2011 was closing out and the transition to Fall was underway, I visited the Baltimore Museum of Art on the Johns Hopkins University Homewood Campus. It's where I took this corner shot from inside one of the exhibits. The weather was gloomy and it had rained most of the day, which is why I decided to find something indoors. But before entering I dodged the raindrops enough to grab some shots of the courtyard near the Charles Street side of the campus. First up is the gateway to the courtyard. When I saw the gates I knew I wanted to throw on the fisheye lens for a little fun.

Next we step into the courtyard for a wider view, looking northeast.

After shooting a few more shots the rain began to intensify so it was time to call it off and head indoors.

Thanks so much for visiting and have a great day! :-)

In the Corner

Thanks so much for all of the feedback and support on the previous post. It was very much appreciated. Quick post today as it is quite early in the morning and I am just returning from seeing one of my favorite jazz groups, The Rippingtons.

Today we have a look inside the Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) where I took the shot below from the corner of an exhibit that houses works by the likes of Pablo Picasso, Paul Gauguin and Vincent Van Gogh. We're talking fine art paintings from the early 19th century.

I visited the BMA some time ago and have a ton of images that I've yet to process, but will do so in the near future. For now let's have a look at one of those Van Gogh classics.

This is "A Pair of Boots", painted in 1887, just 3 years before Mr. Van Gogh's death at the age of 37.

Hope you enjoyed the brief peek. I'm off for a little shuteye but we'll see you soon. ;-)
