The cooler side of Summer

It's been so hot in Atlanta, and all across the East coast.
I have all but given up on trying to keep from loosing my garden.

But for a reprieve, albeit temporary, i wanted to share some photos i took while in London last...
the temps there were between 65-80 degrees F, everyday!!!!

Behind the scenes.....when the museum is closed!

Think that all is still and quiet in a museum when the doors are closed?
Think again!
There's a lot going on when the visitors are gone, and just as much when you see a gallery roped off.
Installation of a new exhibit takes a lot of work, and these massive paintings are not that easy to maneuver . It can take weeks for a new exhibition to come together.

And while re-painting a room and hanging the paintings seem simple compared to the workrooms which can be twice as busy! Crating and un-crating a painting takes time. Inspection of each work of art. Some works require restoration such as touch ups and cleaning, re-framing the list is endless!

So to give you an visual idea of what goes on, I have collected these photos from The Louvre, Musee d'Orsay, and the Metropolitian Museum of Art.
This will I've you some insight..... behind the scenes!
