My Birthday Visit With Jered

Today was my 25th birthday, and what better way to celebrate than to take a trip to the Met with a friend? It turned out to be a rather unique experience — I handed over my camera and let Jered have free rein, leading me along snapping shots of whatever interested him. We both work in a restaurant, so our pace was much faster than the typical museum goer; we power walked the length of the museum and back, starting on the roof. We wandered through 19-Century European Painting and Sculpture (love the tremendous collection of Rodin!). Then on to European Painting, Decorative Arts, a little Medieval, Egypt, American Arts, including the recently re-opened Frank Lloyd Wright room, Greek and Roman Sculpture, and finally Cast in Bronze, the French Sculpture exhibition. It was fun to cover so much ground in such a short time.
