Museum of World Treasures

The Museum of World Treasure is located in Wichita, Kansas. It contain artifacts from ancient Rome, Greece and Egypt. Their military exhibits dates from the Civil War to the fall of the Berlin Wall. As you enter the museum, T-Rex Ivan welcomes you.

Head up the stairs you are greeted by a suit of armour.

One of my goals when I visit a museum is to capture patterns, and ancient pottery works contains the most interesting designs. Along with rock formations.

The military exhibit contained the normal items you see at most exhibits, but it did have original letters written from that period of time. By today’s standards, these handwriting is a work of art. So, I wonder if the kids today did not know what the U.S. Constitution says, because the can no longer read it.

In a corner, where most people would miss seeing the display, are two tapestries. These were the most beautiful items on display at the museum.

Up Close To Fall

The Fall Season has beautiful colors. The leaves are falling from the trees. The berries are a bright red. The sky is a brilliant blue (or it is when I go out.) It is enjoyable to go and experience that colors of fall. Sometimes, I capture something special.

Wichita Art Museum

The Wichita Art Museum exhibits work honoring women artists, pre-Columbian artifacts, glass works, and other sculptures and paintings. I found Kay Sekimachi’s Leaf Bowl a fascinating work of art.

The artist of the glass painting did a remarkable job capturing the light reflections.

The museum had some beautiful glass works.

One of the most interesting items in the museum was the history of the Corning Glass Works. Most of us have use Corning dishes. They made the first light bulb for Thomas Edison.

The blown glass exhibit featuring Richard Marquis was entertaining. His glass work was unique, humorous and creative.

Finally, the sculpture titled “Bed” by Lloyd Glasson was amazing.

Fall 2020

In October 2020, I went on an adventure to take picture of Fall. Since, I haven’t traveled outside the State in 2020 the pictures were taken at local parks. I have figured out why people love Fall so much, it is the colors. Green, Red, Oranges, and browns. The most difficult decision is: What pictures to include in the blog?

Walk Around Park

Here are a few pictures of my first outing since….  I can’t go many places, but I can go to the park if I stay off of the playground equipment.  My first outing was a walk around L.E. Ray Park.

I liked how the sun was reflecting off of the grass.

The geese will leave you along, as long as you don’t go near their babies.

Flower Blog

I haven’t travel due to ice and snow on the ground. May art and craft projects remain incomplete because it is to cold to varnish them. Since I taken a lot of pictures, go check out my flower blog.  Up Close to Flowers

Some of these photos were taken at Home Depot, outside of grocery stores, or anywhere where the flowers caught my attention.
