An Evening @ The Getty Center

Clear blue skies at noon with whiffs of cotton clouds, a storm approaching in the evening and a golden sunset - a visit to the Getty Center can be rewarding in such conditions.

I love the symmetry I see here, the little patterns, shadows and curves  in this wonderful architecture. 

The Travertine stone — 1.2 million square feet of it— is one of the most remarkable elements of the complex. This beige-colored, cleft-cut, travertine catches the bright  light, reflecting sharply during morning hours, and emitting a honeyed warmth in the afternoon.
