Debbi’s mom is in town so today we all went to the Getty Center, which is sort of a requirement for everybody who visits LA.
Of course Debbi and I have been there tons of times, so we just saw the special exhibitions (Paris – Life and Luxury for me, Gods of Angkor for Debbi, and Luminous Paper: British Watercolors and Drawings for both of us because we’re both Anglophiles :)) The only bummer is that the pond garden is under renovation so we couldn’t go down there. I did manage to get some photos of the upper level though:
The architecture of the Getty Center is as much of a draw as its arts, but I didn’t bring my wide-angle lens, so enjoy some of these closer shots instead:
It’s been a nice day, but a little too crowded. Debbi bought me this awesome postcard (as part of a belated birthday present) that shows an entirely different view of the building, and in the rain too, which makes me decide I need to go back in the winter, when it rains.
