Taste of the Getty

Kat and I visited the Getty Museum in L.A. a little while back, before our blog launch, and before buying our “big guy” cameras (the Nikon d5100s). Not wanting to discount the photo quality of the Nikon Coolpix L1 I’d used for several years, I decided to upload some pics for this article, taken with the Coolpix. While the big cameras are constant companions nowadays, I have fond memories of the days of lightweight portability! An earlier Foto Fix article “A-Maze-ing” featured a picture taken during the same Getty visit. In my view, quality is excellent. Moral of the story…. is there somewhere and has something to do with size!

Sidenote: The Getty is responsible for the shadow pic Kat and I use as our Gravatar, top photo on our “About Us” page, as well as the travertine stone background behind our blog. It’s really an incredible museum. The pictures in this gallery are just a teeny-tiny sampling of the outdoor exhibits, gardens. The place is just amazing!! If you haven’t been yet, go, soon! ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

    Love the Getty. The outside is so fascinating I find it difficult to go inside.

    Point and shoots can take wonderful pictures if the conditions are right and the subjects are in the right place. It’s when things are not quite as you would want them that the bigger cameras come into their own.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
