Museum as Canvas (Part II)

Thirty years ago I visited New York for the first time.  I was nineteen and felt the city was my future.  I came for ten days with a hundred bucks in my pocket, a brick of Tri-X film and wanderlust in the blood.

 

It was a memorable trip and among many firsts was a visit to the Met Museum, where David Hockney had a beautiful retrospective.

 

Two years later, I packed a bag and moved to New York. 

 

This week I returned to the Met to see the new Hockney exhibition.  And I made this photograph of a sweet old couple, lost together in the experience of art.

 

Time flies. Carpe diem!
