But now that we've been living up here for a couple years now, it seemed appropriate to visit the Met again and get rid of whatever negative memories we had associated with it. As you can see from the above, I had fun reenacting one of my favorite scenes from When Harry Met Sally in the temple room. Jeremiah really loved checking out the weaponry section, while I loved the photography exhibit, though I wish it was more expanded. People-watching at museums is always fun, too.There were quite a few people carrying monopods to take selfies with their phones, which has to be a thing at major tourist destinations (like the Eiffel Tower or the pyramids). I don't mean this in a facetious way, but perhaps one day in the Met, on a floor between the Egyptian mummies and the European paintings, there will be a nostalgia-inducing photography exhibit showcasing old Instagram filters and selfies and how democratized art has become. Gone are the days when an artist would need a wealthy patron or sophisticated tools to create art.
Anyways, enough of me waxing on the flattening of art and technology, more pictures below:
