The Tate Modern was wonderful! And free! There is a charge for certain traveling exhibits, but their permanent collection is free and amazing! This was my first visit to the Tate Modern, but hopefully not my last!
Grab a cup of coffee because this is going to be a sensory overload of photos!
I get a lot of questions about taking photos in museums. Yes, I always ask the guard or the ticket seller if it's okay to take photos in the galleries. And as you can see from the photo below, it often takes patience to make my way to the front of the scrum to get the photo -- especially the close ups.
I try to include people in my faraway photos because they give you a better sense of scale. One of the reasons that art in museums is so mind blowing is the sheer scale of it. That, and the texture. There are some things that even truly excellent photos just can't convey.
I hope you enjoyed those photos. There's so much to inspire and excite the senses!
Tomorrow I'll be back with part two! Thanks for stopping by!
