Impressionist Sunset

with 8 comments

I have come to love impressionist photography… but then, impressionism is my favourite way of seeing things. I probably disliked Paris because the Musée d’Orsay was closed when I got there on a Tuesday morning, thereby depriving me of the opportunity to be in the presence of the Degas paintings that inspired my love of ballet (though they could not provide the talent that can’t possibly exist in a 5’6″ girl with size 10 feet, no matter how many hours I practised.)

Don’t know when or if I’ll ever get back there, but there’s a Degas to Dali exhibit touring from the Scottish National Gallery that is parked at the Auckland Art Gallery for the next couple of months that might soothe my longing…

Or, of course, I could make my own… This one is so very simple (not even a bird?!?) but I just love the colours and the glassiness of the waves. Hard to believe it’s a seriously ferocious surf beach. Hard to believe this is just a few miles down the road from me…
