Destinations, USA

Miles of Museums

June 3, 2010

The first stop on my round-the-world trip was the USA. I’d been to NYC for a work conference previously, but didn’t have the chance on that trip to do much more than rush around spending a ridiculous amount of money on clothes and jewellery in a ridiculously short amount of time.

This time round, I went to so many I managed to museum-and-gallery myself out so that by the time I visited the Guggenheim I was impressed by the building itself but dragging my feet from each artwork to the next.

At each museum and gallery, most of the tourists rushed around taking photographs of the most famous Picassos and Cezannes, artworks they could buy as prints in the gift shop. I preferred to take pictures of people interacting with the artworks. These are some of my favourites. Click for larger images and captions.
