The Getty Museum- Los Angeles, CA-April 24, 2012
Greetings Fellow Travelers!
April 24th was my birthday. Coincidentally it was also the birthday of my Cousin ChiMax. We decided to celebrate our mutual birthday by going off on an elaborate adventure that took two days. Today I’ll show you some of the pictures from our visit to the Getty Museum in Los Angeles!
This is a bust of Janus, the two faced god who simultaneously looks to the future and the past. He is the god of transitions, beginnings and ends, and in a larger sense time. ChiMax thought it would be funny if we posed as the two faces of Janus.
ChiMax: Yes, I did.
TL: The security guard wasn’t pleased, was he?
ChiMax: No, he wasn’t. He wasn’t much fun anyway.
I can’t remember what this next painting is. We just thought it looked funny, so we stood like the guys in the work.
The third painting is a portrait by Renoir of Albert Cahen D’Alvers. He had a pretty impressive mustache that seemed very Lorax-like.
ChiMax got into a staring contest with Jean-Leon Gerome’s bust, made by Carpeaux.
ChiMax: He was asking for it.
TL: What was he looking at?
ChiMax: Some painting of boats.
Last but not least, here is a picture of ChiMax with Los Angeles in the background.
ChiMax: The ‘skyline’ is pitiful. At least the ocean looked nice.
TL: Be nice.
ChiMax: What did I say?
Anywho, later we’ll put up a few more pictures of our big adventure.
