At the Parrish Art Museum

 
I had a job yesterday to photograph two pieces of art at the Parish Art Museum here in the town. It's nice to work locally. While I was there. I came across this statute in yard and I liked how the snow contrasted with the gray stone,and also how ths hands were holding the madalion.


This was one of the photos I couldn't find yesterday. The camera's date was reset and so the photos didn’t download into the folder for yesterday's date. Such a silly thing, to drive one crazy.


While at the Parish, I did learn that they have a petition going to get a William Merrett Chase postage stamp. Chase was an Impressionist painter (1849-1916) and resident of the Shinnecock Hills section of Southampton, right where I live. Sometimes I look at a painting of his and feel like I've been there.


I signed the petition.


Today's photo was made with the Canon 5d and processed with ACR.
