Oh, I bet you’d do the same thing!
So if you found yourself on the 17th floor overlooking your city and you just happened to have a camera about your person…
…you so would! 🙂
By the way, I live on the side of Grouse Mountain just behind that tall building with what looks like a spinning top on top of it. (Actually, that spinning top is a lovely revolving restaurant.)
We have a revolving restaurant in Atlanta, too. Beautiful setting with the mountains and the boats. Have a lovely weekend. I’m going to see Frida and Diego in the city this weekend. Any thoughts about their art?
Wow Sabra, you lucky, lucky girl! I’ve only ever seen a few of their paintings and never a group exhibition. I hope it’s treated sympathetically by the curators; they were two such different personalities and both incredibly gifted artists. What do I think? Oh don’t get me started. lol To me, he painted his obsession with women, with Mexico, with the people he loved and she probably survived as long as she did because she painted her daemons and worked them out on canvas. Somewhere in one of my sketchbooks are a few pages of my obsession with Kahlo probably sketched and collaged after I read her biography. I think that’s a time I began to use very strong orange hues in my paintings. Oh I hope you enjoy it and it inspires you to pieces. 🙂
The Space Needle in Seattle is a revolving restaurant – it was 50 years old last year and they painted the top gold to celebrate. I love the photos – so clear and bright. I was amused by how tiny the boats appeared, next to those big buildings.
Wow JoAnn, I feel old! Lol. I’m really glad the top is gold. after 50 years every girl deserves some bling! 🙂 Gosh I just realised I haven’t been to Seattle last year at all. Must go down soon. The only problem is when I get down to Seattle I always end up at the museum of flight. Just love that black bird, can’t stop photographing it.
Wonderful captures!! I twitted your post 🙂
Aw, thank you Vatelechuza, my friend. Off to see your wordpress day. 🙂
Wow, what a beautiful city! I love the water and the boats. I live in a teeny weenie town compared to yours!
Have a great weekend!
Hi Donna, I live in a teeny weenie village in England 🙂 Vancouver is rather larger but teeny compared to Oxford, just 10 miles away from my village. It’s all relative, isn’t it. I’ve seen a little of your town thru your blog and think it looks very charming. I hope you have a great weekend too. Huggs.
We closed the office early today and I went to the exhibit Frida and Diego. I will be processing for a while, I think. I feel blessed to see these paintings in person. It is so wonderful to have both artists’ work together. I think the curators did a fine job…a rich, rich experience. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about their work. There were also a lot of photographs of them and even one of the body casts she wore and painted.
Wow Sabra, I wish the exhibit came somewhere where I’ll be, like Vancouver or even Seattle or London. I’m sure it’s a lot to take in. Can’t wait to hear more about it from you. 🙂
Actually it was the real body cast instead of a photograph of it. You should check out the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto because they were a co-organizer of this exhibit. Express that you would like to have the exhibit visit there. Diego was a terrific portrait artist…I had not know that until yesterday.
Sabra, I know an exhibit of the two was shown in Toronto over last Christmas, but that’s wayyyy too far away…5 hour plane ride, and if I’m going to be in a plane for 5 hours I’ll make it 9 and be in Europe…lol. I think my best bet is London. Vancouver very rarely gets important exhibitions. I’m so very happy for you that you got to see it.
What a beautiful city, i can only hope that I might get to visit some day 🙂
Angela, if you visit you must come see me! 🙂
Ummm, Gorgeous!! It almost seem surreal. 🙂
It does from that height, doesn’t it Sara. 🙂
