Saturday Morning at The Met (Ancient Egypt Exhibit)

in #photography4 years ago (edited)

Hey Steemians!

Welcome to the second installment of my exclusive Steemit Mobile Photography series, Saturday Morning at The Met.

I love living so close to The Met, it's practically in my "backyard" which makes it easy to pop in whenever I need an art fix or simply want to escape. The grand architecture and world-famous art collections fuel the imagination and always inspires. There's endless charm within the multitude of salons that magically lures one in like a favorite novel or movie come to life, leaving one with the feeling of having just wandered through history. An additional lure, are all the visitors, many from around the world, whose reaction to being in the museum is equally inspiring. This series is dedicated to capturing both.

This week, I had the pleasure of walking through the Ancient Egyptian wing for the second installment of Saturday Morning at The Met.

@logic Thank you on both accounts! O! I agree, I can spend hours just wandering through these's been real fun to share!

It is like going back in time, especially when you visit ancient ruins.
I jist filter out all people from my vision like they are not there and imagine I am back moved few thousand years walking around with everything intact around me.

Yes! I know exactly what you mean. Just letting the magic take over! And then, I have the excuse to wander through again to take pics! What a fun escape! ;)

Thanks for taking us with you on your visit to the Met such an interesting exhibit

Thank for coming along with me! It's been a pleasure to share! :D

Hello @ilanaakoundi, I just saw this post. Have you any idea of which goddess is depicted in photo 3? I am particularly fascinated by female goddesses. Thank you. The photos are lovely.

What a darling little goddess in photo number 3 !
