Photohunters: Entertainment

Note - I am auto-posting this in advance but won't be at my computer until Sunday afternoon so my visiting will be late.
The photohunters theme this week is entertainment. We are lucky in my state to have free admission to the NC Museum of art's permanent collection.Given the current economy it's nice to have free forms of entertainment.
They also have reasonably priced outdoor concerts during the spring through fall which I have attended in the past, although I don't have any photographs of those.I must be getting old for my first thought in terms of the entertainment theme to be a museum.
Even when I was going to concerts and other forms of entertainment more, I didn't take photographs of them.The art museum allows non flash photography except when you are in the special exhibit areas.
The first shot was taken in the art park facing the museum and the last shot was taking walking around the art park. The smokestack almost looks like part of the outdoor art but it is what's left of the youth prison that used to be on the museum site. I took the outdoor shots in early spring before the trees fully leafed out.Home of the Photohunt

Wonderful post and excellent photos. Looking at art is my idea of great entertainment too. I love that museum so much, esp. the sculpture trails. We are lucky to have such a great place in NC!

Beautiful shots Carver... I was curious about taking shots in a museum until I saw you mentioning that you are allowed to do so.

Youre not getting old Carver, I think you're getting more refined. I would think of a museum as an entertainment source too.

How lucky you are Carver to have these treasures you can visit and for free.
I must be getting old too, since museums are favourite places for me too.

I love that you consider museums entertaining. Incidentally, I go to museums quite a bit -- especially this time of year when it's often wet as well as very hot and humid in Hong Kong! ;b

A free entrance to a museum works out to be good entertainment for a quiet day :)

my favorite is the first photo...i love the frame :)

Marites said...

LOL! Had to laugh with your observation of being old because your form of entertainment is visiting museums. Had to disagree with that because I like museums ever since I was a kid:) anyways, i really like the first shot. hope your computer woes get better soon. happy PH!
