The Train That Led Me to the Museum of Photographic Arts

I recently decided to take on a weekly photographic challenge of photographing a specific theme each week. This week the theme was trains, and even though I recently joined a wonderful group of photographers at a real train station, I wanted to go out and try to get creative. I decided I would go to the Train Museum in Balboa Park, but on my way to the Train Museum, I passed the Museum of Photographic Arts.  Now you know I LOVE photography, so after looking at the cost of the Train Museum I opted to use my money to go and enjoy the amazing exhibit they had at the Museum of Photographic Arts called 7 billion Others and the Model and Muse of Hendrik Kerstens…I just could not resist and I have NO regrets!!

Here are a few images I gathered from my wonderful trip to the Museum 🙂

At the entrance of the Museum, they had a multimedia exhibition called 7 billion Others in which various individuals from all over the world expressed different experiences and emotions that had me glued to the 30 minute presentation…it was very interesting to see the different experiences that we all have in common yet from different cultures.

Once you pass the multimedia exhibition at the entrance, they had different booths with various videos of people sharing personal thoughts and life experiences.

There was also a gallery with the works of Hendrik Kerstens.  I had never heard of him, but it was a collection of his daughter, his muse, and they were stunning images that looked like different time periods of her.

I’m looking forward to an adventurous 2015 as I try different things and find new knowledge as I embark on my creative journey.  I’m so thankful that I can do this as I do not take one minute for granted…life is just too short and while I have the blessing of good health and the opportunity, I plan to appreciate EVERY moment that I’m blessed to have.

Blessings!
