new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

glass ceiling / glass floor

visiting the acropolis museum has great tidbits of fun.

i really liked bernard tschumi's design -- it's full of light and air and provides an intelligent background for the treasures it holds.

you can find a great description of the building here but one thing it does not mention is a wonderful glass floor that unifies the wide ramp area on the ground floor at a central atrium with the top level and the sky beyond.

it really was a fun place to stop and look above, while the visitors above were taking pictures of us below -- and some were taking the opportunity to catch some exercise.

glass ceiling/glass floor - fun, fun, fun

if you plan to visit the building, and you value your privacy, i have some advice: don't wear a skirt.
