Last February, I had the rare opportunity to be in Sao Paulo’s Pinoteca and see the work of Ron Mueck. The line to view the exhibit was very long, I think I was in line about 4 hours. Once inside, I was overwhelmed by this amazing exhibit. To learn more about this incredible artist, please see here.
Here are some images of the exhibit taken with my Fuji x100s.
Recently, my daughter and I visited Washington, DC. I had not been to DC since 1983 when I was part of Presidential Classroom. DC still has a beautiful charm in the Spring and we were fortunate to have nice weather during the days there. The buildings in some cases like the White House felt smaller for some reason probably as I see them from a different perspective now.
The Iwo Jima Memorial which was near our hotel was still incredible. The scale of the sculpture is overwhelming.
The most emotional moment was seeing the wreath being delivered by a family at the tomb of the unknown soldier. The playing of “Taps” gave the ceremony so much more significance.
We had the opportunity last week to travel on canoes on the Housatonic River near Lenox, MA last week. It was a beautiful experience and enjoyed the trip. We were able to see beavers and amazing landscape. We recommend it. Contact Hilary at http://berkshirecanoetours.org
