Daily Photo #180

Went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and met the fellow below:


He wasn't too talkative so I went and had a look at an exhibition of super hero costumes. No pics allowed (bah!) but some of the original costumes for Dark Knight, Spider-Man, X-Men and even an original MkII Iron Man suit from the movie were on display! The Thierry Mugler Robot Girl was there along with one of the original Catwoman/Pfeiffer costumes from Batman Returns. Fantastic! Museum staff were most hostile, more lke store detectives that people who are passionate about art.

The Dali's were also fantastic - all that art in a large space to wander around although the gardens were closed due to yesterday's rain (weather today is meant to be the hottest ever, uh oh). I have some images to upload from a peaceful demonstration to upload later.

I'm not sure but the heat brings out the craziness of the city. Seen a couple of things that certainly opened my eyes on the subway. One of them involved someone brandishing a handgun in my general direction but I guess I was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

More adventures ahead today but hopefully that won't involve semi automatic pistols.
