The Gates

Took an Art History trip to visit The Gates (Wikipedia Link), and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Of course I snapped some Camera Phone pictures. Note I was walking the entire time, so these were all made while walking on ice.

When visiting the gates, if you ask one of the “Pole People” (the people with poles that have Tennis balls affixed to one end so they can unwrap a gate should the fabric be blown and twisted), you can get a sample of the fabric used. Rather interesting free souvenir.

Afterward we visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art and checked out some of their stuff. I spent some time roaming in there and got somewhat lost (intentionally didn’t carry a map, just drifted where I felt I wanted to go at the moment). Noteworthy is the Frank Lloyd Wright Living Room (who designed the nearby Guggenheim), and some of the armor and weapons they collected. Rather cool stuff.

Snow Day?

Well, got up, checked my email, hit the shower, had breakfast, and went to class:

World Lit 2/24 Canceled: Enjoy the Snow

Well thanks for the Email! Oh well…. on my way back I snapped a few pictures of the snow (from the Camera Phone).

Edit: 2:30 pics posted. Last one is a cheap rip off of Christo’s “The Gates”. Ok, it’s just some construction barrier.


Quiet Time.. pictures coming

Slightly quiet over the past few days. Several things going on. First of all school is busy (lots of work and studying). Then I’ve been hacking away at several projects. Lots of fun there. Not to mention some TV time, and just relaxing. Everyone needs some of that.

I’ll be checking out the “The Gates” in Central Park, NYC later this week as I’ll be in the city. I’ll be sure to take my camera phone and snap a few low-quality pictures (they still are pictures), and post them here for all my non-Northeastern US and international readers. So keep an eye out for those. I’m planning to put those up sometime before the weekend (likely Friday night).
