The Gallery

Welcome back from the weekend, I truly hope you enjoyed it. Now just days away from the Christmas Holiday, festivities are in full swing with decorations everywhere and celebrations aplenty. I really love this time of year as it presents so many opportunities to get together with friends and family, opportunities to create lasting memories as we begin the wind-down to another year. Here's to a safe and happy holiday season to all.

I will be posting through Thursday this week but will then take an extended weekend, returning on Tuesday December 27th.

Today's post features one of the many, many galleries within "The Met". New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art is a must-see kind of place if you're in the city. As photographers we love the visual arts and most of us would love to have our own gallery to display our creations. The image below seems typical of a gallery layout, plain and simple but trimmed with a bit of detail, but not enough to distract from the presentation of art itself.

The thing I like about art galleries is the fact that each one has it's own style and atmosphere. They are a great mix of architectural elements, color and of course, wonderful works of art.

Thanks for visiting and have a great day!

Gallery Row

While driving through Lancaster Pennsylvania I came upon a section of town that was lined with art galleries. It was an eye-catching experience which compelled me to stop and grab a few shots, especially since it was early morning and the streets were pretty much empty. While taking the shots I came up with the perfect name for this post, so I thought. While doing some keyword research I ran the title "Gallery Row" and wouldn't you know it, that's what this area is called anyhow. So much for my originality. :-)

On the corner is HMB Designs, an attractively painted building.

A look down the street will round out this post.

As previously mentioned, this area is loaded with art galleries and studios. There is even a Chiropractor amongst the shops in the event of neck strain while viewing all of the wonderful items. :-)

We'll have a look at some others in a future post.

As always, I appreciate your visits and comments. Thanks!

Enjoy the day and we'll see you tomorrow.
