Kelvingrove

2012.05 Glasgow (26 of 40)
On my last day in Glasgow (a rainy Sunday) I headed to Kevingrove, a wonderful and diverse museum. I found out about the museum thanks to an anonymous commenter who gave me a list of things to see and do in Glasgow. Whoever you are - a big thank you. I had the best time.

I already mentioned how moved I was by Dali's Christ of St John of the Cross, but I also loved the architecture of the museum itself and a display on the Glasgow Style an incredible mix of arts & crafts and Celtic.

The floating heads display kept pulling me back. Each time I found a new viewpoint I saw something different and unique.

But the thing I'll probably remember the longest, was two quotes I saw on the walls in the Impressionist gallery:

2012.05 Glasgow (31 of 40)

Elizaveta's "Dreamer", like the quotes above, inspires me to keep dragging the camera out in my attempts to create the kind of photos I see in my head. What is inspiring you this week? Pin It
