PixCell-Deer#24, a Tiffany & Co. Christmas Window, Chestnuts Roasting and Sisters’ Selfie at Trump Tower

“By covering surface of an object with transparent glass beads, the existence of the object itself is replaced by “a husk of light”, and the new vision “the cell of an image” (PixCell) is shown.”  Kohei Nawa   (artist based in Kyoto)

Friday night the Metropolitan Museum of Art is open until nine.

We saw the tree lighting and walked through some of the major exhibits to check out others.

(the Christmas tee is another post, stay tuned) The Holiday Sugar Sculpture of the Museum was fun to see.

Because it was raining, I just got the fountains looking like this.  Didn’t want to stand in the rain.

Weekly Photo Challenge: From Above

There’ve been a lot of directions in the challenges.

Up, down. Round. Forward. No inside out. Yet

this week it’s FROM ABOVE.  

I stand over garbage, see a lone glove on the road-

take a shot.  A single baby shoe in the gutter.

Weddings from a church balcony, the mezzanine.

Not often, though.  Directly above is rare, more likely above from an angled side.

Have they done sideways?  I like that movie.

Here’s my From Above Gallery, though not celestial.
