  1. These are amazing! After enjoying looking at them, I visited the Los Angeles County Museum of Art website linked on the post. There are many more than appear here.

    I have very fond memories of my painter mother taking me to the museum in the 1950s and ’60s, first at its original location at the LA Exposition Center, and then at its present location on Wilshire Blvd in the Miracle Mile. When my son, almost 40 now, was a baby, I took him to the same museum to begin to share with him the magic of original art by some of the best painters ever to put brush to canvas. Please enjoy these and visit the LACMA site where you can see more and even download any that are in the public domain.

  2. Exquisite photographs ~

  3. Really wonderful photographs! Thank you!

    Unfortunately, not all of them are of Buddhist temples, 6 are taken in Toshogu complex in Nikko which is a Shinto shrine commemorating the first shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu
    (it is still recognizable/ pretty much unchanged today: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tōshō-gū or google 東照宮)
