The Getty Center

I took a whole boatload of photos on our trip to California. The first two days were spent at Disneyland, the next day at The Queen Mary and the Aquarium of the Pacific and the final day at The Getty Center and Santa Monica Beach and Pier. Here is one painting from the Getty that was really amazing. Close up and regular perspective. Too bad I can't remember the artist but I believe it was a Flemish painting which I usually am not too fond of. However, this one was really incredible to me.*

Oh, and by the way, if you ever go on vacation, don't forget your battery charger for your camera. Could have been a real bummer for the trip if I hadn't brought along another camera, including extra batteries. Very, very glad I took two cameras on the trip.

Very nice. I am glad that my camera takes regular batteries. You are right you never know when they will go.
