The Weekend in Black and White: Rodin Garden NCMA


I thought the Rodin Garden at the NCMA (art museum) was a good subject for monochrome photography. None of the quick shots I took over the course of two walks on Saturday and Sunday were exactly what I had in mind but I thought the one below was close.

Looks like Rodin had three 'thinkers'.

Dunno what you had in mind, but I don't see how it could be much better! The cloud is lovely, the statue shines, the pool reflects -- seems perfect to me. And I'd love to visit this garden.

Rodin's works are a joy to see, aren't they? They are sooo... intriguing, provoking! Thanks for sharing this.
God bless you!
