Happy memories of street clicks in Washington DC.
I was lucky to have a friend Delores Boyer, who would check what was on, and guide me to see Washington. As she drove, I clicked when she stopped at a traffic light or just through the window.
Over the years, she introduced me to several exhibitions, museums, guiding me through a mind boggling array of art work and sculpture.
For a museum freak like me some pieces remain engraved in my memory. Degas little ballerina is an eternal favourites. So many years later it still stirs such emotions as you see this statue and read the story behind the work . …
“At the sixth impressionist exhibition in the spring of 1881, Edgar Degas presented the only sculpture that he would ever exhibit in public. The Petite Danseuse de Quatorze Ans, the title given by the artist, has become one of the most beloved works of art, well known through the many bronze casts produced from this unique original statuette after the artist’s death.”
And then there was the famous Dale Chihuly’s glass boat.
The botanical gardens with spring flowers in bloom was such a treat.
Delores would sometimes sit and read, while I wandered around trying to capture the ambiance of a place.
Thanks to Delores and many of my other friends too for the great memories. Have a Happy 4th July!
