Pictures at an exhibition

We spent a recent weekend in Canberra - which contrary to rumour is the capitol of Australia.

Family struck down with some form of virus - not a happy team.

Here are some pictures from The National Gallery and The National Portrait Gallery.

The ones with the blurred people are not a mistake - I was trying to do something about calmness and movement.









You can find more shots from around the world at Our World Tuesday.

It looks like it's a fascinating exhibition...much time could be pleasantly lost wandering around there.

The half face is kind of disturbing....but I liked the colorful painting.

There is a lot of sickness around, hope everyone is better soon. That blurred people shot is rather ghostly and maybe appropriate for Canberra! Ho Ho Ha !

Hope everyone is feeling better ... I know being sick is not a happy time especially for children ... Be well soon.

I like your experiment with the people ... I think it works well though I might of interpreted it as a focus the many people who are enthralled with the art. The first "portrait" is fascinating. I wonder if the model really wanted his bones exposed ... no privacy any more :)

Very nice! I like them all. Especially the one with people (or their essence) standing in front of what I assume is the Grand Canyon.
