tourists at the metropolitan museum of art?





























at least I think they are tourists but who really knows. maybe they just like to have their picture taken next to beautiful sculpture. 
I love this photo and wish I had shot it but this was taken by my son ian in the greek and roman sculpture garden at the met. thanks ian.
to see more great works of art, please check out long island daily photo on tumblr.

What a fabulous photo, Lily! Thank your son for this one! At least for me, it brought back such wonderful memories of the time I have spent in NYC and the Metropolitan! Hope your week is going well!

Nice photo of people making memories. I've only been to the Met once. Loved it. I want to go back.

Don't MOST people want to be associated with beauty?
Yeah, but probably tourists. people almost appreciate the places they are.
