Art-A-Day -- In California

Just home from an art week in California -- five museums in five days.  And what a wonderful week to be in Los Angeles!  While we were there they had five or more inches of rain, depending where you were, along with mudslides, waterspouts, tornadoes, flooding, snow, mandatory evacuations, road and airport closures and general distress.  Four of the five museums have only outdoor cafeterias, and the bus always has to park a  l-o-n-g way from the front door.  Good thing the art was great!  I'll write more about that later, but here are my daily photos.

        "Seems it never rains in southern California
        Seems I've often heard that kind of talk before
        It never rains in California
        But girl don't they warn ya
        It pours, man it pours."

January 16 -- Las Vegas airport

January 17 -- Little Tokyo

January 18 -- Los Angeles County Museum of Art in the rain

January 19 -- The Getty Center

January 20 -- pumping stuff

January 21 -- the Norton Simon Museum

January 22 -- just before sunset

January 23 -- guess what -- still wet


  1. Oh, the gorgeousness of museum architecture. I still enjoy the pictures I took of the Ky Center for the Arts when it was new. Lately, living out here on forty acres, I find mostly nature on my camera, but the next time I go to Lexington I must try to take the camera and have time to shoot something.

    I love that determined little palm.

  2. palm trees are one of the reasons I love LA

  3. Museum architecture is great but I want to hear about the ART. The pumping apparatus seemed appropriate for the experience and makes an odd reference to the architecture.We had a similar experience of the slot machines in Reno. Thanks for hanging in there and making great photos despite the conditions.

  4. The bus driver was just trying to help you keep up your walking everyday;) Glad you made it home safely.
