[ch. 41 / national gallery of art, washington dc]

Love the contrast between the West Building and the East Building at the National Gallery of Art. West houses mainly European and American art from 19th to early 20th century; East showcases the Gallery's permanent collection of modern and contemporary art. The two buildings are connected by an underground concourse (third photo down) which feels like a portal that transports, or prepares you really, from one era to the next. Like all my other museum visits, it never feels like I have enough time in each...

As you are reading this, I'm preparing for my trip to South Carolina. Taking some time off before the next wave of projects and shoots begin. Plus more traveling in the next few months for work! Enjoy your weekend.

  4. The second photo down is just perfection - the ultimate beauty of minimalism.

    Just curious, but did you live in Blue Pool Road in Hong Kong? We left Hong Kong in 2000 and after an interlude in UK of three and a half years, have returned to Asia, but this time, (nearly 9 years ago), to Bangkok.

    1. Yes, I grew up on Blue Pool Road in Hong Kong! But I moved to the states in 1986. I love Bangkok, I traveled there when I was 9! :)
