The Atrium at the MET

This photo shows the ceiling of the atrium right at the entrance to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The photo was taken from the 2nd floor terrace.

So what are you plans for the weekend?

Impressive! That's the Met in its splendour!
Visit some blogs to get updated and walk a bit, as we have a gorgeous day outside... Unless i find something else unavoidable at the Lisbon Time Out! ;)

Love the shots from yesterday and today. We were at the Frist two weeks ago, and while it's nice, it is definitely nothing like the Met!

If you get a chance to stop by my blog today, I've a great story to share!@

To hopefully get a full night's sleep at least one night for the first time in three weeks! Work has been banging me so hard that my whole body is sore!

I had no idea that this place was so beautiful!

I think I visited this museum when I spent some days in New York (10 years ago...)but I didn't remember it was so beautiful...I do remember a museum with many things from South America and Mexico (wonderful masks made of feathers), do you think it was the same one?
Answering to your question of yesterday, I know quite well le Musée d'Orsay and its paintings, I love Le Louvre where you can spend an entire week and the last museum I visited was le Mémorial de la Shoah, in Paris too. Have a nice weekend, Ming, here the weather is...capricious.

Lovely. I like all the domes and arches!

I'd like to come see the Met, stand below that round window in your photo. Instead I think I will plant some herbs early and later climb a mountain. That should make for a wonderful Sunday.
