All I Need is a Little Art…

It’s gray and blah, and maybe that’s why I’m craving a little art and beauty in my life. Thought I’d share a few shots I took during a visit to the Smithsonian museums in D.C. over the summer. I’m working on my photography skills–I look forward to it being a lifelong endeavor–and discovered that taking shots of something behind glass is a challenge. My shots didn’t begin to do justice to these pieces. This is before I upgraded my camera – one with a neck strap because I have a hard time holding onto tiny cameras. And they don’t have good bounce, so…

Three of these were taken at the Freer | Sackler Museum of Asian Art, and the nautilus (there’s more than one, so does that make it ‘nautili’?) was taken at the Natural History Museum. If I had to pick a favorite shape, the nautilus is it. What’s yours?
