Prisoner of texture…

IMG_7942

In most cases I would show you the buildings of the place I visited and then the world-class art displayed in the venue. This time, however, I was so struck by the textures I kept seeing that I will delay showing you the other until the textures are thoroughly digested and absorbed. Last Wednesday we spent the beautiful, clear day traveling to Alcatraz Island (we have lived near it for twenty-eight years and had never been). It was a great day of walking and exploring, and we totally loved the environment, the view, and the art.

In these shots you catch a glimpse of a little of the Ai Weiwei art displayed, but really these are just to celebrate age, patina, and the ravages of time…
