Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC

We had the opportunity to spend a couple days exploring New York City a few years ago.  I had the best tour guide ever; my wife is from Long Island and worked for a while in Manhattan, so she knew exactly where to take me.

One of our stops was at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  I love museums and the Met is probably the best museum I’ve ever visited.  We could have spent days there but we only had a few hours.  If we make it back to New York City, another trip to the Met is a must.

This photo is the Charles Engelhard Court in the North Wing.  I love how the shadows from the modern glass enclosure fall across the classical facade of the entrance.  I also like that they brought a little nature into the museum with the grass and shrubbery and natural light.  You can sit in what amounts to a tiny park inside the museum and enjoy the beautiful artwork.

My wife says I make stuff up. While that's probably true I'm going to stick to stuff that's mostly true.
