Why hello there. Welcome back to my page. I happened upon this cactus and cat in a sombrero combo while heading to Photoville and just had to take a photo. Enjoy it LOL.
Have you ever stepped foot in a shipping container? They’re huge! Literally the size of a room. They are usually used to ship large amounts of cargo overseas via ships and must be transported with cranes because of their sheer size and weight. Now imagine a bunch of shipping containers transported to the middle of NYC’s Brooklyn Bridge Park and filled with photo artwork. That was exactly what Photoville was! I missed last year’s exhibition but I finally made it to this year’s so hooray~ The subject matter varied from animals to political and world issues.
We spent Museum day live 2016 at The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum ^.^!
Museum day live is a one day annual celebration of exploration and curiosity sponsored by Smithsonian magazine. Which means you can get a ticket for free admission for you and a guest! There are over 1000+ participating museums in the United States and 24 to choose from in NYC.
I remember driving past this ship when I was a child and I would just wonder what it was doing there.I didn’t know it was a museum at the time and never imagined I would be aboard it someday. I was just awestruck by the massive size of The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space museum. The first time I have ever stepped onto a warship. Decommissioned nonetheless.
We arrived a bit after 12pm. There was quite a line,about a 40 minute wait because it was museum day. The minimum admission package is about $26+ per person.I saw a bunch of tourists buying tickets and I was like wow. I kinda felt like telling them they could get in for free but they had already handed over their money to the ticket agent 😦 Quite happy that we got in for free LOL.
The top deck has plenty of planes on display ranging from fighter jets, stealth planes and even helicopters. It was pretty darn cool. My favorite plane was actually the one with a smile and it was not weaponized! I think it was used for delivering something……I forgot 😦
