Annenberg Space for Photography

Paula and I had a day off from caring for Mary on Friday. We arranged for a sitter then we headed north to Century City to the Annenberg Space for Photography. Annenberg has been having an display called “Not an Ostrich” that ends this weekend. Admission and parking was free. All we had to pay was our fee to Dawn to take care of Mary.

Dawn took Mary to get her hair done at “The Mane Place”. Then got her her usual chocolate shake. Mary was a happy camper.

So Century City is up near Hollywood. It is home to several TV and movie studios including Fox Studios and Sony Studios. One can tell that it’s a movie studio because it occupies an entire city block and the buildings are about 50 feet high with absolutely no windows. Usually there is a guarded fancy gate near the middle.

So we arrived at noon in the parking garage under the building where we found out that the museum was closed until 2 pm for a private showing. Boo-Hoo! So we stayed anyway and went to have some lunch. There were several lunch places with various cuisines (Mexican, Chinese, Burgers, etc.). So we had a slow quiet lunch and hung out for a while waiting for 2 pm. The area outside the building had lots of chairs and places to sit and watch people go by.

So the museum had a small set of the huge collection at the Library of Congress in Washington DC covering from the Civil War to the present. One can browse the collection online at http://loc.gov/pictures

Here is a sampler (a very small sampler) of some of the pictures. There was a wide variety of American.
