The View from Above

When you have the super-rich paying for an immature Rose Period Picasso $104m (£57m), close to the GNP of some Caribbean or African states, something is very rotten: such gestures do no honour to art: they debase it by making the desire for it pathological.
Robert Hughes, art critic

The Getty Museum has been open for 10 years and a few weeks ago was my first visit to the place. Let me tell you it’s incredible. The outside views alone are breath taking, let alone the magnificent artwork inside. I will be visit again very soon.

This photo was taken at the Getty Museum looking east. The office buildings in the center right are in Century City. In the far left just beyond the dark clouds is downtown Los Angeles (note, it is worth clicking on the photo to see it a bit larger).

I hate crowds and I thought parking was going to be difficult and it wasn't. And, because it was raining off and on, there were no crowds on a Friday night.
