Art Gallery of New South Wales

With some excitement in downtown Sydney today (http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/world/hostages-held-in-sydney-cafe-islamic-flag-seen-in-window-tv/article22078710/), we spent some time enjoying the Art Gallery of New South Wales (http://www.artgallery.nsw.gov.au).  While we were no rush to leave the gallery for a while, I took some time to take pictures.

9/11 Memorial

When listening to the radio, I was reminded that today is the anniversary of 9/11, a very sad and tragic event.

I had opportunity to go to the 9/11 memorial in New York city last year.  Here are some pictures from the visits.

Museum of Printing Arts Redux

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I was off to the Museum of Printing Arts (http://www.druckkunst-museum.de/home.html) for a second time.  It was just as exciting as the first time — something about the whirling machines and the smell of ink.

Here are some photos from the visit:

I am presently in Leipzig, Germany for the European Summer School of Culture and Technology for work.  As part of the week, a series of excursions are planned into the local area.  This afternoon we are off to the Museum of Printing Arts (http://www.druckkunst-museum.de/home.html).

I am quite looking forward to a return trip and wondering what new pictures I might take.

Here are a few from last year’s visit:

Stay tuned for the new ones.
