Cultural Saturday Pics

On saturday everyone wanted to go to a shopping complex called Woodbury Common. I thought that if I had to go I might end up in jail So, took myself off to the Natural History Museum, the Guggenheim and the Frick collection instead.
Nobody died.

I actually had a great time in the Guggenheim. Fantastic fun. You walk all the way up to the top and then wind your way down. It spirals around the walls like a shell and has all kinds of stuff going on along the "corridor".

Unfortunately, you're not allowed cameras, phones or bags above the first level, so this is all I have. In the Frick you only can't take your coat in, but it was full of people doing the walk up to painting, step away from paintint, squitn at painting and look like you're having a bad day dance so I didn't like to take pictures. It was very lovely too though.

I forgot about these. As usual, sub-par photograpy inside. I make no apologies for it, just a note to let you know that I took all the images that really made me dizzy out.

Also, I seem to have fixated on the Astrological Clock. I don't know why, but it was cool.

The Astrological Clock. I liked this. )
The bottom half of the clock has the days of the year written around it. And when the hour strikes there are some little "men" (not pictured) that come out of doors and move. Of a night crowds would gather to watch it.

A really cool building front. That is St. Wensleslas on there. He's very big in Prague. )

We visited much more cool stuff, but I forgot to pack a memory card, so other than the really bad ones I had to delete, these are all the photos I have.

My sister let me take a picture of The Synagogue where the Golum lives* using her camera though, so that was cool. Maybe one day I'll be able to get hold of those photos.

(*I touched it. My geek-heart still beats a little giddy beat about that. Yeah, I think I need to get a life too. God help me if I ever get to Venice. That was the pavement! I licked it!...)
