Up in the Santa Monica mountains are around 750 acres of land which The Getty Center was built on. I've wanted to visit the museum for years, and I finally had the opportunity yesterday.
I didn't have my helicopter handy, so I borrowed this aerial shot off the Internet. (Sorry it's so pixelated, but it will give you a feel for the sheer size of the place.)
Here's a shot I took looking towards Los Angeles:
This next photo was taken out by the gardens. I was having a, very, bad hair day, and I hate the unflattering shirt I was wearing, but I wanted proof I really was, finally, at The Getty.
I like art and I enjoyed touring the different Pavilions, but I loved the architecture of the center most of all. Because I love photography so much, I would have to say the Center for Photographs was my favorite exhibition.
I could have spent hours and hours just wandering around The Getty photographing the buildings, the views, the gardens, the fountains, etc.
There's something important I want all of you to know. I took this next photo just so I could make something very clear.
OK, you're probably tired of looking at photos ….
Here's the last one:
I had fun. It was a beautiful day in so many ways.
I think I might make a trip back for another visit sometime in the fall.
