It was overwhelming to see the actual works of famous artists like Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg. I looked forward to seeing Johns particularly because we had to do an entire unit inspired by his work and well, we have a love-hate relationship (long art story behind this) and I kind of wanted to set his work on fire whilst simultaneously admiring it? Hahaha.
( I am so behind on my USA posts I am so so so sorry! I’ll try to catch up as soon as possible! )
Let’s take a small break from the travel photos. Here are some of the photos from a little photo shoot with some friends that basically involved walking around a field for a few hours. We didn’t really plan it in great detail and we just winged it so hahaha yeah this happened. I’m pleased with how the photos turned out though and I still have a couple more to post so watch out!
I sometimes forget how ridiculous people can be when they’re tourists - whether it be making funny poses in front of an iconic location or getting on their knees to get the right shot. I guess it’s because no one knows them and no one is bound to remember them so why the hell not take weird photos of yourself and shoot to your heart’s content!
As expected, it was incredibly busy and there were so many people but it was incredibly beautiful. We only stayed for around five minutes and sadly I wasn’t able to take a photo of its astronomically designed ceiling because too many people were rushing and let’s face it, the last thing you need when you’re running late are tourists blocking your way. I’m slightly agoraphobic too so the large number of people also made me a bit uncomfortable. Nonetheless, the interior of the Grand Central Terminal was phenomenal.
