Been Here, Done These

I love the Museum of Fine Arts, though not as much as Ron does. He is a docent there and has been for years now.

Yesterday, I went to these two exhibits. It was horrendously hot out, but cool inside, even the parts that were not climate controlled.

I am a real fan of all of the Bruegel/Brueghel's works of art: Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Jan Brueghel the Elder  and Jan Brueghel the Younger, so I was really anticipating great things from this exhibit. I was partially disappointed in the fact that the Bruegel's were minimal participants with only five pieces of over one hundred. Nevertheless, the display was phenomenal and well worth my time.

The other exhibit that I went to was this one.

Of course being a photographer, I loved this exhibit. Everything at both showings were translated into English, which was wonderful. What I would have liked for the photography exhibit is some explanation about the early processes that they label the different photos. I have take photography classes as an undergraduate student, but there were some types of the early photography applications that I had never heard of. Either way, both exhibits were super, but by the time I finished, I was on sensory overload for certain.
