Terrible photo, I know,
but the sign outside the High Museum
flips between advertisements for all of the
Woodruff Arts Center,
so I had to shoot quickly.
What a lovely summer day in Atlanta!
We walked from our little condo
up Peachtree Street
to the High Museum
to see the fabulous
"Girl with a Pearl Earring" exhibit.
We had seen Vermeer's wonderful piece
years ago at the
National Gallery, but of course
we couldn't pass up the opportunity to see it
one more time!
The show is terrific,
with lots of paintings on loan from
the Mauritshuis at The Haigue.
If you go, be sure to get the audio package,
because there's lots to hear!
Did I mention that we walked up Peachtree?
You've gotta love the policewomen
We enjoyed a lovely lunch
on the outdoor patio at Lure.
We shared the Smoked Trout Salad
and the Mussels with Pomme Frites
We were not disappointed in anything!
On our way home,
we stopped in at CB2,
just to browse,
and then passed by Bella Cucina.
I love their mural:
This afternoon we walked to
Midtown Arts to see
Craig really wanted to see it,
but knew that I wasn't much for violent films.
I covered my eyes at the beginning,
and had to leave before it was over -
he departed with me.
The middle of the movie was very good,
but of course,
if you know the story - and it's not a story -
it is extremely sad.
I've done a bit more
reverse applique this evening.
It's difficult to determine which is which here:
All in all a very fun day in the City!
thanks for dropping by!
peace to you!
