I Got Some Art From That There Museum

I grew up going to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I guess it was kind of like my second home growing up. Now that sounds painfully pretentious, but what I mean is that my parents took me there a lot because we lived in New York and it was nearly free to go there. As a kid, I’d be the first to admit that I really disliked going to museums. I didn’t understand why we had to go. I do however remember feeling like I wanted to make the art I had seen on the walls when I got home. I have no aptitude for drawing or painting and I frequently think that the reason I picked up a camera was because of that. When I discovered that you could take photos in museums and that a lot of them could turn out well, I started to like museums.

The Museum of Fine Arts is a great place to look at art but also to photograph the rooms. I’ve lost count of how many times I have visited. It has to be over a hundred times by now, but somehow I never get bored there. I always have another group of people to take and of course, more photos to take. I got a super wide angle lens, 10 to 18mm recently and that has to be one of the best pieces of photographic machinery I have ever owned. It distorts the picture in this weird way that I love and it allows you to throw curves into the photos as well. Let’s see how I did today with my trusty wide angle, shall we?
