Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)

This was an afternoon we spent at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).  There were many wonderful works of art – Van Gogh, Picasso, Kandinsky, Miro, Lichtenstein – but what intrigued me as much were the people.   Some were works of art in themselves and some were remarkably oblivious of their surroundings.

      I’m not sure I have one. My opinion changes each time I look at them. As a preconception, perhaps the three people absorbed in their electronic devices and oblivious of the magnificent Kandinskys behind them.

  3. Thank you for liking my blog! Great images. Like you, I found the stand out one was the people completely absorbed in their electronic devices when surrounded by so much greatness. I wonder what they found so important, that it could not wait.

      Thank you. Yes, I was intrigued by how many people seemed to find ultimate reality in their electronic devices rather than their very compelling surroundings.

      It took me a while on your blog to realise that Tiritirimatangi was Tiritiri. I’ve gone past it often enough many years ago on the way to Waiheke but never actually visited there. (I live in Oz but am from Auckland).
