Sunday afternoon at the Getty. Amazing photo exhibit!

8 Aug

Mi querida familia me visita de México, y cuando vienen los parientes, hay que pasearlos.

On Sunday afternoon we had a magnificent visit to the Getty Center in Los Angeles. High above the 405 freeway, nestled on a hill overlooking LA from downtown to the Pacific Ocean, it’s the sort of place that really makes you appreciate living in Los Angeles.

If you have some free time this summer and are looking for a nice place to take the kids (or a date!) then this is highly recommended. There’s beautiful gardens, wide open spaces, and great architecture.

Of course, there’s always the artwork to admire. We had a chance to look at lovely photographs by Walker Evans (circa 1933 in Havana) and other photographers in the “Cuba” exhibit, a very powerful set of images with a lot of history and cultural perspective. No se la pierdan.

But get there early! The Getty closes at 5:30pm.

Amazing lighting and people watching at the Getty Museum, on a Sunday afternoon.

The view is beautiful. Here is an angle looking east towards Century City and downtown.

Surprise! I don't know if she was modeling or showing off but she looked picture perfect.

The Cuba photography exhibit is a great way to spend an afternoon.

Que guapo CHE! The only snapshot I could snap before they asked me to put my phone away. (No pictures allowed inside the exhibit.)

Go for the architecture, go for the art, go for the fun of it. The Getty is a very unique place in LA.
