A note to members of City Daily Photo: for June, the theme is When I (or you) can travel again.
Starting where we left off yesterday, two more views from the upper level of the glass tower at the National Gallery.
Descending the stairs, one finds this sculpture on the landing below. Young Woman Bathing is by Aristide Maillol, and was done between 1919-21.
Here is the view from the lower level. Parliament Hill is out there.
I took a look back down the corridor branching off to the north.
And then I started down the long ramp leading to the entrance lobby.
Outside, Maman by Louise Bourgeois was waiting as I departed into the March twilight. I hope you've enjoyed this tour.
Haha. When can we travel again, no one knows.ReplyDelete
Great first shot. The spider is a tad... buhhhhh...
Remarkable museum, indeed. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete

Love the night view of the glass tower in the last picture. That is one big and scary spider.ReplyDelete

Great night shots, William.ReplyDelete
This part of the museum looks very modern !ReplyDelete
This looks great to me. I cannot wait to travel again....whenever that will be.ReplyDelete
The glass tower is spectacular.ReplyDelete
Do or die (I hope not the latter!), I'm traveling again this weekend. Uhm, provided, of course, that there will be gas available and that there's no sudden upsurge in Covid infections.ReplyDelete
There isn't a thing about this beautiful Gallery/Museum that is not spectacularlly perfect!ReplyDelete
@Nancy: I am quite fond of Maman.ReplyDelete
@Grace: not a problem for me.
@RedPat: I have mine in mind.
@Carol: thank you.
@Gattina: it certainly is.ReplyDelete
@Michelle: it may be awhile.
@Marleen: I think so.
@Revrunner: good luck!
Thanks, a great look.ReplyDelete
The glass tower is fantastic from each view. The building actually is wonderful. Love that spider.ReplyDelete
I love it when the physical structure is a work of art itself and they aced that here.ReplyDelete
The spider is the best!ReplyDelete
I like your night pictures.ReplyDelete
All the best Jan
