I just returned from a spontaneous weekend trip to the nation's financial capital. I can hardly offer any perspective on the chaos and disorder in the markets but you weren't interested in that anyway, were you? Instead, I have some pictures from the Museum of Modern Art.
Even though it's permitted - and where it isn't it seems to be so such that they can shift the crowds faster through small rooms with popular exhibits - I feel rather uneasy using my camera indoors. So, you'll have to settle for the sculpture garden.
Aristide Maillol. The River.
Alexander Calder. Black Widow.
Joan Miró. Moonbird.
Alberto Giacometti. Tall Figure, III.
David Smith. Cubi X.
Barnett Newman. Broken Obelisk.
Raymond Duchamp-Villon. The Horse.
A really impressive array of sculptures spanning over 150 years of art history. And that's just the garden.
Later, walking around the museum I had the chance to point my camera upwards, tourist-style, and capture some skyscrapers.
Really, it requires no photographic skill.
Neither a good camera.
Nor does one need an eye for composition.
All you need is some tall buildings around you.
And so, that was the start of a fun weekend...
