Helloooooo......how are you all adventurers?
I have more of the arty and less of the crafty tales to share with you today.
Starting with a visit to MOMA (Museum of Modern Art)one day last week.
I took myself off on the Subway hoping to broaden my horizons a little.
Now we all have an opinion, that's what makes us individuals. We don't always agree with each other or the experts, but we respect the right to have a different opinion...don't we??
Georges Pierre Seurat....wonderful piece,
1000's of tiny brush strokes
Art....why of course.
Need I even ask the question?
The answer is a most resounding yes.....
3 basketballs in a tank of water!!
Well, it's in the eye of the beholder isn't it.
Sorry, Mr. Curator, but I'm not with you on this one.
This piece, is a variety of polystyrene, timber, chicken wire and
other bit and pieces.
Can't remember who made it or anything else about it.
It may have influenced a milliner to create something for someone to wear at a certain wedding recently!!
Nope I don't think so...
Back view, yikes....
A definite 'no' in my book.
But how about you?
I would love to know your thoughts.
I have to say I haven't done an art degree I just know what I like and what I don't......
But hey, whoever created this piece, has it displayed in MOMA in New York city so there you go!!
Some people will love what you do and others won't....
Moving on......No.1 had a day off so we visited the Museum of Natural History, in search of Dinosaurs......
Down in the subway I found more wonderful mosaics.
Had to share this one with you.
I'm enjoying wandering the streets and soaking up the atmosphere.
Noticing the large and the small details that make up this city and the people that inhabit it.
I wonder if the house and the shutters came first or the Vespa?
Love the colours.....
Another visit to the Union Square Market this morning.
A lovely, breezy, sunshiney morning.
Pots of Mums looking gorgeous.
Ornamental gourds and an assortment of pumpkins.
I've always liked that word for Autumn.
That's exactly what happens.
The leaves change colour and they fall along with the temperatures.
I wish I could stay for a bit longer and enjoy the changing colours and cooler temps.
I resisted taking photos of Zinnias today girls, thought I would give you a break from them.
But I can tell you they were there by the bucket load and just as cheery and beautiful as ever....
A chance conversation with another tenant in the building revealed that we have our very own rooftop garden.
I'm so glad I found this out as the view is amazing...
BR. Looking towards the pool!!
Apparently it was going to be open this weekend,
bit too cool for me. Last weekend would've been much more enjoyable.
Views of the city.
Giving my tootsies, some much needed TLC and a Paraffin Wax heel treatment.....
Had to come to New York to get my first ever Pedicure but hey, some of us just take a little longer to do some things than others.....
Had a manicure as well.......that was a first too and won't be the last either!!
After having a wander through the market this morning and taking a few snaps I got a coffee and found a shady/sunny spot to sit, draw, write in my travel diary and enjoy the latest
It was just perfect and the home sickness that has been following me around left for a little while and I could relax completely.
I'm putting my hand up for this one and quite a few others around the city.
On park benches, subways, rails here and there and there's even one in MOMA!!!
So here we are 2 weeks after we arrived.
The days zip by and before you know it, it's time to get tea ready, then a week has passed .......
Ticking a few more must do/see things off the list.
We have been in constant contact with hubby at home via email and Skype.....isn't it amazing technology?
Just makes the world that little bit smaller I think.
Keeping up with all the news...you know the sort of stuff that isn't all that important when you are home.
But when you are away you want to know,...
How many eggs the chooks have laid.
Whether the Prunus Elvins is in full flower yet.
Is the new cafe open in town.
The sort of things that keep you connected to where your roots are.
Thanks for another great week New York, you're an amazing, interesting place but my
will always belong to another.
