Reflecting or resting?


I whipped out my camera and snapped this shot as soon as I saw these three people sitting in front of this altarpiece. The real question is, are they reflecting upon the craftsmanship of the carving or are they just resting after a long day in the museum? I'll let you decide!

Our tour through the Bode Museum has come to an end, I hope you enjoyed it. I've been visiting a lot of museums lately, but perhaps I'll take some time off from showing them, the outdoor sights of Berlin are so lovely at this time of year.

  2. I think both: resting and reflecting, it goes along with the territory. I maxed the photo to see the altar a bit better. It is a remarkable piece and lovely.

  6. Indeed both but some street photography is a great idea and Berlin is the perfect place for it. I can not wait to see your pictures. Have a nice weekend.

  10. I would definitely sit there to admire it. And I'd get up every now and then to better see details.

    I'd like to see summer in the city.

  13. Can't you do both? When we visit museums and galleries my husband does a lot of reflecting. Sometimes with his eyes closed ;)))

    1. My husband calls this phenomenon "concentrating". ;-)

  14. The bench is a perfect location and opportunity to do both. Some of the finest views I've had in museums have been on benches placed just so.

  16. If they are anything like me, it's a bit of both. If I've spent a long time in a museum, I'll sit in front of a favorite piece to catch my breath and to admire at the same time. This is such a great photo.

  18. Great capture!
    I love museum benches. Good for resting, contemplating, letting it all sink in.
    Have your read Thomas Bernhard's "Old Masters"?
