I hope readers will recall that several days ago, in a fit of pandemic fatigue and nostalgia, I posted an article in which I reminisced about interesting art I have experienced while traveling, including pictures of the art I had encountered. I also invited readers to send me pictures of their art experiences, with my promise to publish future posts featuring readers’ pictures. In response to my art nostalgia post, I received several notes saying kind things about the article, but so far only one reader has actually submitted pictures. Even though I have received only one reader submission, I am going to post the submitted pictures here, both because I really like the submitted pictures, and because I hope that by publishing these pictures, others might be encouraged to send in pictures as well.
The pictures I have posted below were sent in by Neha Yardi, of Howden Mumbai. The pictures Neha submitted were taken in quite a variety of different settings and geographical locations.
First, Neha submitted two pictures from St. Matthias Cathedral in Bratislava, Slovenia.
I will say that Bratislava itself is a wonderful place. My travel post about my Bratislava visit can be found here.
Neha also sent along a picture from of another Central European city; she sent a picture of the Liberty Statute, located on the top of Gellért Hill in Budapest, Hungary. I also enjoyed visiting Budapest, as I described in my travel post about my visit there (here).
Neha also submitted yet another picture from Central Europe, this one from the Czech Republic, as she describes below.
Neha also submitted one other picture taken in Europe.
The final picture Neha submitted was taken in India, as Neha describes below:
I am very grateful to Neha for submitting her wonderful pictures and interesting descriptions. I hope that by publishing Neha’s pictures, other readers will be inspired to send in their own pictures of their encounters with art — any type of art, painting, sculpture, architecture, and even the performing arts as well (as I discussed in my original blog posts). If other readers send in pictures, I will publish the best of them (best measured by most interesting or unusual) in future posts. I hope many readers will submit their pictures.
Special thanks to Neha for sending her pictures and descriptions along.
