A day at the Baltimore Museum of Art...

Unknown Mami

This is a collection of images taken from a recent trip to the Baltimore Museum of Art. My family and I had never been there before, and we were all blown away by all the beautiful artwork. Thankfully the museum does allow photography, so I'm able to share some pictures with you. Unfortunately I couldn't write down or memorize all the names of the art pieces and artists, so not all the photos are labeled....

Those are great photos. I love those two at then end and I am fascinated by the miniatures. My big sister had a dollhouse growing up and it was amazing. I didn't get to play with it very often. :-D

I have the same camera as yours. It's amazing to get great shots.

Happy Sunday!

I take photos of the information on the work of art if it's available. It uses up another photo, but makes me look smart LOL I did that when I was in Rome recently. I took a picture of the info of each church since we went into so many.

I am totally in love with chandeliers, so the miniature one you photographed is now my favorite chandelier photo ever! :)
