Garden In The Gallery
I showed you the reflecting pool the other day. The other interior courtyard in the National Gallery is occupied by this garden, which can be viewed from both floors. I like the mood in here in the evening.
There is not a free space in the courtyard.ReplyDelete
It definitely has a peaceful air to it.ReplyDelete
The geometry of the place is so much more evident in the low light setting.ReplyDelete
This is gorgeous!ReplyDelete
It looks like a spanish patio.ReplyDelete
I like how they design the garden.ReplyDelete
Oh, a beautiful and well-kept garden !ReplyDelete
That's indeed a nice place in the evening. The last two photos are my favorites.ReplyDelete
Enjoy your weekend, William.
This beautiful garden is worth a visit by itself!ReplyDelete
@Tomas: no, it's quite well planted!ReplyDelete
@Halcyon: it's very soothing.
@Janis: I have photographed it before in daylight. There's a skylight overhead.
@Luis: I certainly think so!
@Marianne: I can see that too.
@Nancy: it's art in floral form!
@Karl: it is well looked after.
@Jan: thank you!
@VP: it is, yes.
That's an eye catching garden with light color and shape. Sometimes I think that such a garden is extravagant with the climate change issue.Delete
very cool patterns, I wonder how much planning they do. we have snow falling 🤗ReplyDelete
The internal garden is beautifully set out William, surrounded by archways, oh la my favourite decorative shape, fabulous!ReplyDelete
Lovely patterns; very soothing.ReplyDelete
What a lovely garden.ReplyDelete
That is lovely! What a great idea to bring a garden into a gallery. You don't see that usually unless it's in a greenhouse.ReplyDelete
@Red: I can see that too.ReplyDelete
@Beth: it's possible the flowers vary. I think they have to plan for plants that can thrive in low humidity conditions.
@Grace: wait til you see what's on tomorrow!
@Orvokki: it is!
@Denise: and these ones can't have the humidity of the greenhouse, since the space is open to the galleries, and the art can't tolerate humidity.
That is very pretty and peaceful looking. It kind of reminds me of the courtyard garden at the Art Institute of Chicago.ReplyDelete
It must be wonderful to walk into there at this time of year, William!ReplyDelete
Such a lovely, serene place....ReplyDelete
A nice area!ReplyDelete
What a treat this time of year!ReplyDelete
Creepy and cool at the same time somehow: "Last Trees on Earth! $50 Entry to spend 5 minutes with them"ReplyDelete
I can see why it's a favorite.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous! I seem to remember a smaller patio at the Met in NYC but perhaps I dreamt it...ReplyDelete
@Sharon: I imagine other galleries have similar concepts.ReplyDelete
@RedPat: it is!
@Norma: that it is.
@Marleen: very nice indeed.
@Cloudia: that's a different way of looking at it!
@Revrunner: it's greatly appealing.
@Ciel: it wouldn't surprise me to have one there.
That is an amazingly beautiful spot! I imagine it's a nice green place to visit in the winter, too.ReplyDelete
oh sure is amazing spot and the pictures you took a delight.ReplyDelete
Thank you for coming to my blog and leaving a comment. I just finished rewriting my page that was terrible. Now you can read it. I do not know how anyone could read such small printing.
Very pretty! I like the way you showed the shadows and shapes.ReplyDelete
This is as wonderful as the reflecting pools. Wonderful shots!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful space...ReplyDelete
These are wonderful posts!ReplyDelete
@Meradeth: it is. They've changed it significantly inside since I took these shots.ReplyDelete
@Carolann: thank you.
@Mari: that it is.
@Kay: it is.
@Geoff: that it is.
