pictures of my trip to Grand Rapids, part four

Monday afternoon Kate and I went shopping at a huge mall.  I tweaked my knee on the stairs in the parking garage and it pained me all afternoon.  I did quite a bit of sitting on benches in the mall while she shopped.  I didn't do any shopping, since I just spent a small fortune on new furniture earlier this month.

Tuesday morning we went to the Grand Rapids Art Museum before we drove home.  They had a very interesting exhibit by photographer Edward Burtynsky about water.  Kate and I enjoyed it very much.

"Over the past five years, Burtynsky traveled across the globe, weaving together an ambitious representation of water’s increasingly fragmented life cycle and the roles that it plays in modern life: as a source of healthy ecosystems and energy, as a key element in cultural and religious rituals, and as a rapidly depleting resource. These images—sometimes elegant and sometimes haunting, many bordering on the edge of complete abstraction—hover between the worlds of painting and photography, forming a compelling global portrait of water that functions as an open-ended question about humanity’s past, present, and future relationship with the natural world."
