Thanks so much for all of the feedback and support on the previous post. It was very much appreciated.

Quick post today as it is quite early in the morning and I am just returning from seeing one of my favorite jazz groups, The Rippingtons.

Today we have a look inside the Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) where I took the shot below from the corner of an exhibit that houses works by the likes of Pablo Picasso, Paul Gauguin and Vincent Van Gogh. We’re talking fine art paintings from the early 19th century.

I visited the BMA some time ago and have a ton of images that I’ve yet to process, but will do so in the near future. For now let’s have a look at one of those Van Gogh classics.

This is “A Pair of Boots”, painted in 1887, just 3 years before Mr. Van Gogh’s death at the age of 37.

Hope you enjoyed the brief peek. I’m off for a little shuteye but we’ll see you soon. ;-)

    Looks like an awesome place to spend an afternoon. Nice work buddy. They let you bring in a tripod or were these handheld?

      This is truly a great place to see some of the greatest pieces of art work known to mankind. Unfortunately and like most museums, no tripods allowed. Had to walk around with that camera draped around my neck the entire time.

      The place is huge and I think I spent about 4.5 hours there and still didn’t see everything.

    Love the use of the fisheye in the second shot – clever framing without distorting the core of the painting which is caught superbly. It’s great when museums allow us to use cameras!
