"Two Pieces from Getty Center"

A photo of Van Gogh's Irises cheered me yesterday. It is at the Getty Center, but I couldn't remember seeing it when we visited in 2009. It caused me to look in my photo archives and see if I had any photo record of it. No, I didn't, but I did find a few pieces I hadn't shared yet.

The Jousters, 1963
Alexander Calder, American, 1898-1976
Outdoor Sculpture, Painted steel
J. Paul Getty Museum 1200 Getty Center Drive Los Angeles California 90049, Accession Number: 2005.104.2
"The Fran and Ray Stark Collection"

Delusions of Grandeur, 1967
René Magritte, French, 1898-1967
The Getty Center, Accession Number: 2005.112
"The Fran and Ray Stark Collection"

I haven't forgotten going through the ancestor photo album. At least I've added a few new ones here in this journal

"Dad and I in 1975"
5:30 pm

I've at last found the original of this photo. The version I'd had online since the late nineties was this dreadful scan:

By 1996 web standards, it wasn't too bad.

The original has had some damage since 1975. There was discoloration splotches, a pinkening of the tones, and it scanned poorly due to its textured paper:

So it took some doing to restore it. I'm pleased with the digital version now!

"Julia and I at Birthday Celebration"

Our friends Nick and Shirley took us to lunch at Julianna's Café. While I forgot my camera, they remembered theirs!
