s. sabine krause 02/09/2012 12:51a picture that offers us a glimpse of an architecture that seems to fit in perfectly with its surroundings: the terrace like structures make it look like rock formations and the museum as a whole looks very snug among the trees framing it – at one with nature, as the native americans used to be before shaken violently out of their everyday lives by those white settlers with their insatiable appetite for land, wealth, power… i really like the composition here. the detail of the lonely picnicker on the wall adds life and dynamism to the shot! greetings, sabine.
