Say Cheese

I am really looking forward to this weekend. Josh and I have made plans for a lovely one. One activity I am really looking forward to is our visit to the Amon Carter Museum. I took a class there in high school, but I've rarely been back since. There is an exhibit that has really caught my interest and I can't wait to see all it has to offer. The Art of the American Snapshot, 1888-1978 traces the history of the snapshot in America after the introduction of Eastman's Kodak camera and film. This exhibition particularly speaks to me since it's about finding art in the average. And aside from the exhibition the Amon Carter has an impressive photography collection that I am really looking forward to perusing. I just finished watching the Ric Burns directed American Experience on Ansel Adams, so I will be keeping an eye out for this piece in particular.
