the Getty

I went to the Getty Museum recently. I saw it in 2005 and was underwhelmed, but this time it was just gorgeous.

Overlooking the cafe. Later, I sat in one of those chairs and ate chicken tortilla soup.

Lovely period rooms.

I really liked this painting, because if you look closely, you can see the horse is smiling. It's a Mona Lisa smile.

Garden by the tram.

I don't think the Getty has changed much since 2005...?

The horse's smile is an ironic one, since it is thinking: "Which idiot painted black spots on me while I was asleep?"
