ARTING About...? The National Gallery, London, England: ART is: Charing Cross, Michael Landy and Earl Grey!!!
From Kilburn to Sainthood – Exploring London’s creative side
A persistent shade of blue is tearing apart London’s notoriously grey skies and beckoning me out. A native Californian, even in London I never go out without sunglasses. This garners me a welcome collection of smiles from curious unshaded onlookers. A friendly “that’s all right dear,” from a friendly passerby as I click photos of my neighborhood, a Britishism applicable most anytime, forces me to respond with my own charmed smile. And leads me to reflect on one of the reasons I love England so.

ARTING About...? Kansas City 18th & Vine, here I come: The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and the American Jazz Museum
by ROBIN SCOTT PETERS
Me and My Canon 550D
I awoke in cool white sheets pillows tossed and a stream of morning splashing west as east. Day two in Kansas City. So much on the agenda--capture the feel of the city with my 550d. Subject: The 18th Street & Vine Museums. I was going to soak up some serious info. The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and the American Jazz Museum housed in one location, nirvana right?
1148 was my room number. I faced north from the Westin towards downtown. A spectacular view.
