A month ago for my sister's birthday weekend, my family and I went down to Los Angeles and adventured around. I wrote about the first part of our adventure in previous posts and this post in particular is very, very late.
The 2nd day in LA, my family and I visited The Getty Museum, or more formally known as the J. Paul Getty Museum. I'm gonna say this right here, I do actually prefer this museum more than LACMA. The Getty sold me architecture wise. Everything was white, beige, cream, and very modern.
I have this thing with ceilings. To be honest, one of my favorite parts of the entire trip was the Tram ride up the mountain to get to the museum. The weather also was absolutely perfect. If you didn't know this about me, I'm all for cloudy muggy gray days. When it looks like it's about to rain hard, that's when I'm most happiest, lol.
The gift shop had real nice things to sell. My dad bought my sister and I a calligraphy kit that I have yet to use.
Easily one of the most interesting displays at The Getty. I took a semester of Art History last spring and learned all about Illuminations so seeing how the process of an Illumination being colored was pretty cool. See, school does apply in real life sometimes.
This is an Illumination!
There's something that sets The Getty apart from the LACMA, and if I'm correct on this I would say it's the overall atmosphere. The Getty seems to be a lot more sophisticated and clean, haha.
I went people watching around the gallery, lol.
Vincent Van Gogh's Irises. I cried.
I kind of fell in love with this spot, so I took a shot before the flood of people came out from those doors.
The next few photos coming up are basically going to explain why I fell in love with The Getty.
Are you falling in love yet?
Go go Power Rangers! We had colorful shoes on that day. :)
I loved the stream of water going down the hill.
Actually I loved everything about The Getty, let's leave it at that.
If I lived in Los Angeles, you can bet your bottom dollar I'd be paying The Getty a visit every weekend.
See you soon.
