Winged Victory of Samothrace, Louvre (September 2009)

The approach to the Winged Victory of Samothrace is as dramatic as the statue itself.

No matter how many times I see the Winged Victory, she still has the power to take my breath away.

Sculpture, Musee d'Orsay (September 2009)

After a few hours of searching, I still can’t find the name of this sculpture in the Musee d’Orsay, but I like the way the sculpture and the architecture combine in this picture.

The Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, National Air and Space Museum, Washington D.C.

Children play in the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Centre, part of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. Not only are the exhibits themselves impressive (counting among their number the space shuttle Enterprise and the SR-71 Blackbird), but the architecture isn’t too shoddy either, in an industrial kind of way.

(Note to anyone planning a visit – if you are trying to get there via public transport, allow plenty of time!)
