Black & White Wednesday: More Rodin

It's not often that a museum is flooded with natural light.
Or that photography is allowed.
But the Rodin museum had gorgeous windows, with lots of sunlight streaming in.

And {no surprise} I really enjoyed taking lots of photos.

All the statues were magnificent.
So strong.
Muscles rippled, hands grasped, toes curled.

And the faces.
It was the expressions captured on the faces that I found the most intriguing.

Agony, ecstasy, pride...


From the hard stone...the immovable, unchanging and cold stone...a life force breathed passionately and told a story. It spoke of relationship and circumstance. It shared emotion and begged to be heard. There was artistry that surpassed craftsmanship, yet honored the craft. It brought me joy to spend an afternoon surrounded by Rodin's sculptures.
