Mini Slideshow - The Getty Museum
An amazing building with lots of open and negative space making it a peaceful escape from the city. Hang out here for a day in the grounds and take your time while you stroll around absorbing the exhibitions. The Getty located on a 270m hill is one of the most visited museums in the United States with approx 1.3 million visitors a year. The architectural story is really interesting as the whole building is based on a primary grid structure of squares where most wall and floor elements are 30-inch squares. The 30 inches is about depicting the standard measurement of comfortable personal space between people.

I love street photography and capturing the context of our everyday life and then, writing the 'stories' that go with the images.
