I visited the Getty Center in Los Angeles, California, USA, in January 1999. I was very lucky to have such nice weather, as shown in most of the pictures. After living in a city which is cloudy 367 days of the year for a year, I went a little bit out of control and took almost two rolls of film in half a day.
This page is very much inspired by Phillip Greenspun's Getty Museum Photo Exhibition on Photo Net.
I was experimenting with my newly acquired circular polarizer. The weather is perfect for it. I really enjoy looking at the texture of the wall. They are actually not load bearing. Simply panel added on to the concrete structure underneath.
Oh yes, the Getty Museum do have some exhibition. This painting is by the French paint William Adolphe Bouguereau (1925-1905). It's called A Young Girl Defending herself against Eros.
It's time to go home. See you next time, Getty.
