Walters Art Gallery

Museums are lovely.  

They are full of human expression, captivating the human experience over decades, centuries and even millennia.  

It had been a little while since I had been to The Walters Art Gallery in Baltimore, so when my brother and his girlfriend were in town we took a little jaunt downtown.  I got a little photo happy.

The Walters has so much variety within its halls.  It has a modern feel in its outer design, equipped with a silver spiral staircase and glass entrance, but within different sections there are deep earth tones, ancient castle-like touches and grand columns giving way to a two-story open terrace.

While I was in the Ancient Egypt corridor a French family with three young children was also there, exploring the relics alongside me.  I loved hearing the children speaking in rapid fire French.  I challenged myself to make out as many words as possible.  A little game to try pull out any remaining knowledge of the French language I've retained since college.

I felt very cosmopolitan in that moment.  Standing in a museum, taking in art, surrounded by multiple spoken and written languages.

I love that feeling.

Here is another selfie-slider: Museum version.  So silly.
