The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York obviously has some amazing pieces of artwork – some of the best in the world. While I feel it normal to capture sculptures in my photography, I rarely find art as appropriate to include. I got a little meta this time though.

Each one of these paintings caught my emotions for different reasons.

In order, they are: Jared French by Luigi Lucioni, Lucas I by Chuck Close, The Innocent Eye Test by Mark Tansey, Whalers by Joseph Mallord William Turner and I did not capture the last one, but it was on a large mural surrounding the room.

I had just finished reading Moby Dick at the time I saw this exhibit, so it was an awesome exhibit.
