Art and Architecture


I've been to New York many times but, in all those prior visits I had never made it to the Guggenheim before last October.  For this trip, I made a point of getting there.  I had only seen photographs of this Frank Lloyd Wright designed building.  It was great to finally see it in person.



The building really is pretty spectacular to see.  For someone like me who loves patterns and the geometry of architecture, it was hard to put my camera down so I could view the art.





























After spending a dizzying amount of time pointing my camera upward, I finally took a friend's advice and headed to the top floor so that I could slowly wind my way down admiring the art exhibit along the way.


Of course, that didn't stop me from looking over the edge to photograph all those patterns dotted with people from a different point of view.



At one point on the second level, there is a planter full of sansevieria plants.  I decided those plants would make a perfect frame for all those curves and layers in every direction around me.


I'll tell you a little about the art exhibit I saw there in another post.  For now, here is a tiny little peek between all those layers that gives just a glimpse of the artworks on display.

Absolutely marvelous photography, Sharon, but I couldn't help wondering if any one has ever leaped over the edge on an upper level and splattered the place.
