new york, pt. 2: the met

The Met! I hadn’t been to the Met before and was glad we managed to spend about four hours there on our trip. What a wonder. We caught the current show on Impressionism and fashion and met Kaitlin there (loveliest!), so it was truly the best day. These pictures are from a few of the rooms that had brilliant natural lighting.




I posted this detail on Instagram but I just love it! This is a (relatively modern) statue of Sappho. My heart!

  1. Your NYC photos are gorgeous! I just love the Met! I can't wait to visit again someday. Did you take these with your Canon a-1? What film do you usually use with that camera?

    1. Thank you! And yes I did (you win points for remembering my camera!). The film used here was Kodak Portra 160. On the last post the pictures were a mix of Canon A-1 and Olympus Stylus Epic, but the same type of film.

    2. Awesome! Thank you! I used Kodak Portra 400 before so I will definitely give 160 a try. Your photos are always so lovely. :)

    3. Thanks! The 160 isn't so great for interiors but these rooms had near-outdoor light in them.

    1. We did! It made me wish I was a bajillionaire though (although I'm pretty much wishing that all the time...)

  4. Oh your pictures make me miss New York terribly! I went to the Met during my honeymoon trip in October and I actually photographed those cute little acorns too, I just couldn't believe they were SO old!
    Hugs from Italy ^_^

    1. I know, it's so crazy to think of how old some of the Egyptian things are. Glad you enjoyed.

    1. Definitely worth setting aside a day or most of a day for it.

  8. Ah this brings back good memories of the one time I visited the Met, back in high school. Love the photos you guys took - that Sappho wreath is so special.

  9. We went to the Met for the first time when we were in NY last Summer and there was a crazy thunderstorm while we were in the room with the huge glass wall - it was incredible.

  10. I love that crazy room with the water, it's so good. When we lived in NY, dalas worked as a guard at the Met, and I feel like a real idiot for not spending more time there exploring the space. It's so huge! Anytime someone would come to visit, we'd go there but would get stuck in the Egypt section for so long cause it was near the entrance (I think?).

    1. I bet that happens a lot! I mean, we have talking for years about going to the Art Gallery of Ontario and it's just down the street and we NEVER go. Dumb!
