Thursday, December 16, 2010 In the Light

Detail of "Urban Light" at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) on Wilshire Boulevard

It's like returning to an old friend it's the "Urban Light" installation at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) down on Wilshire Boulevard this time concentrating on the details. And the long winter light was good, the last day of it before three days of rain. It's a Zen thing the two-hundred and two restored cast iron antique street lamps can clear your head. They just are. And that's cool.

Oh yeah. Balzac is still there, looking on

But the real Zen is at the Japanese Pavilion not that far from Balzac and the odd lights
