A little bit more from my trip to New York much earlier this year. Some of the trip to the museum of Natural History.

I love the subway, I really do. Even that weird electrified pee smell.

At the museum, though, I began to develop a migraine. I continued taking pictures but they look quite different to me in their composition and focuses. Starting with this one (in which of course my settings are just wrong)

This one was my dad's idea. How hilarrrious.

Some poor kid lost their balloons. :(

WHAT ARE YOU DOING THOSE ELEPHANTS WILL STEP ON YOU MOVE DAMMIT.

Now I start to see a return to my "normal" style. Maybe you didn't notice anything, but the feel of the migraine pictures is quite different to me. I picked one large thing and centered it in the frame often, although it could be just my memory of the migraine clouding my interpretation of the pictures.

We went into the amphibian hall because I had to get away from the light and the noise but I found the exhibits much more interesting than the dinosaur hall, and there was almost nobody in there.

081

The end for now! I'm sorry this pictures were a little bit boring compared to some of my other New York ones, but I really enjoy the museum exhibits and I have some more to come from some of the other sections.

Ooooooooooh, I'm going to New York in November for a few days and it's a tour thing but one day is free and I've been trying to decide between that museum or the Met. The thing is, the Met has Roman/Greek stuff and I'm focusing on Classics in uni, but those dinosaur bones are so coooooooooooool. sufhdsuighsidu HALP!?!?

Well the dinosaur hall shiz is really cool (there are some bones you can TOUCH!) but the Met's selection of art is going to be amazing. Depending on how you divide your time and how much time you really want in each to absorb, you could conceivably hit both although I wouldn't recommend it.

TBH, most dinosaur halls I see are roughly the same whereas there is only one Met.

I...do not remember. This was in March? But when I was there last we mostly took the F train.

Ooh! =D I've been there! I.was.in.that.hall! *does happy dance*
Now I want to go back.

I didn't think they were boring at all, by the way. And the one that was your dad's idea actually made me smile ;)

Hahaha.

And thank you! It got kind of weird though because apparently I wasn't making the face quite right and random strangers started advising me. Um, thanks.
