Welcome to Colorado Springs Daily Photo!

Hi, I'm Tamera, a professional wedding, portrait and boudoir photographer in Colorado Springs. But this blog isn't about my professional work; no, it's a daily love note to my beautiful city, where I've lived for most of my life. I love it here and I hope you enjoy seeing Colorado Springs through my eyes and lens!

New York (Part 9)

A few more pictures from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I thought today would be my last NYC post, but there are a couple more pictures that deserve their own post, so enjoy these today and I'll wrap up tomorrow.

I profoundly adore the following artists: Paul Klee, Amedeo Modigliani, whose paintings are so beautiful they make me cry, and André Kértesz, who is a huge influence on me. I once did an homage to Kértesz on this blog, in fact. So to be able to see works by all three of them within the space of a few minutes, well, that was quite moving for me. And another personal favorite, Man Ray, to boot! (That's his Indestructible Object above) It was a good day indeed!

Paul Klee, Redgreen and Violet-Yellow Rhythms, 1920
In the foreground, Constantin Brâncuși, Bird in Space, 1923; in the background, Pablo Picasso, Nude Standing by the Sea, 1923.
Amedeo Modigliani, Reclining Nude, circa 1917. Modigliani only lived to be 35, so he never had the chance to create a large body of work. This wasn't helped by the fact that he often destroyed the work that he didn't like. Thus even though I've been lucky enough to visit some of the world's great museums, I haven't seen many Modiglianis. This nude is ravishing in person. It's so beautiful!
André Kértesz, Shadows of the Eiffel Tower, 1929. This is one of my favorite, favorite, favorite images by him. Swoon!
An entire room completed covered in 1920s murals by Thomas Hart Benton, originally created for the boardroom of the AXA Equitable Life Insurance Company. I can't even describe how beautiful they are. I could sit in this room all day.
Pat standing in front of Perseus with the Head of Medusa by Antonio Canova, 1804-06.
Diana by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, 1928.
