JUST FOR FUN ~ I'M ' WORKING' ON THIS PICTURE

I guess what I'm working on is this: if you take a nice photo of a painting, is it now a photo or is still a painting? Maybe it's not as black and white as I suppose. Perhaps it's in that gray area. This is from the McNay Museum of Modern Art in San Antonio. 

Inside the galleries
"Geometry"
I especially enjoy this one since it was by a pane of windows. Capturing the windows behind this 'see through' art makes it even more 3 dimensional. This was my favorite to photograph.

The outside of the museum

Finally some surrealism: Waiting across from my wife  and the decapitated art guard.

I was so impressed with the place, I've made a tab at the top of my photo blog. Please go take a look. It was quite refreshing to find that this museum allows photography (no flash) in all of its permanent collections. The geometry of the 1920s is still fresh and exciting.

  5. Love all your photos, especially the one with geometry. Amazing piece of art and amazing photo. Your question is really interesting! And who owns the copyright? The painter or the photographer?

  7. The second photo impresses me with all the light and space. 'Geometry' really caught my interest - fascinating work, and a very well executed photo.

  9. Nice black and whites! I'm always glad to see a museum that allows photography, I felt like part of myself was missing when I couldn't take photos in museums in Europe! :)
