Tuesdays of Texture – Week 38, 2016

Here is a new contribution for Tuesdays of Texture for this week.

This is just a small sampling of some amazing medieval European religious art, architecture, and artifacts found at The Cloisters in New York City.

In the coming weeks you may see a few more posts from this place including a number of wonderful old doors:





You’ll find lots of other interesting texture posts over at  DE Monte Y MAR

By all means head on over to check them out and perhaps even add your own and play along.

I thank you for looking 🙂

    The Cloisters in New York have always been fascinating to me but have still not seen them in person, Norm. They are great photographs, just extraordinary! 🙂

    Norm, The Cloisters is one of my favorite places on earth. In fact, it’s the setting of a key scene in the novel I’m working on. Thanks for getting the word out.


  3. Wow. Blew my mind! I grew up in New York State, and have yet to visit NYC. I moved away about 40 years ago, but I still miss the beauty of upstate NY, and visiting New York City is definitely on my bucket list!

      Thanks Lynne. The entire place had to have been set up by someone who knows lighting, both natural and artificial, VERY well.
      Highlights and shadows in all the right places in every room. It was a dream to take pics in this place 🙂

    You beautifully captured the textures, the artistry, and amazing detail. Such beauty added to what could have been just simple columns of support.

      Thanks for the kinds words Leah – I took about 150 shots in the two hours or so that we were there. This place blew me away 🙂

        You bring to mind some practical questions, Norm, if you don’t mind sharing. With taking so many pictures, what is your routine for sorting, deleting, editing, storing, etc.? I often feel overwhelmed with the pictures I’ve taken, and am interested in knowing how others deal with theirs. Thanks.

          I might do a post on this subject at some point but it would take too long to explain the entire process here in the comments.
          Backing up onto a separate storage device and being ruthlessly realistic in the initial sorting/deleting process are keys for me.

    Great photos! In the last one, he looks like he’s trying to stifle a laugh … unusual for a statue like this 🙂
