Center of Gravity

Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City

Beautiful Ceiling at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City
"People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within." Elizabeth Kubler-Ross
This is the first time I came across the quote included with the picture and I have to say I am truly happy I found it. It's very true, both to stained-glass and to people.

This picture was shot at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. I forgot which part it was at but I can still remember the intricate details in this beautiful ceiling. It's so precise that it's almost mesmerizing. I wanted to take a picture from right under it but since the chandelier is hanging so low it was not possible.

The contrast in the room when you visit is like the contrast in the picture. The room is somewhat dark and then you look up and see this burst of light, colorful burst of light.

This black and white photograph was captured on my iPhone using the Hipstamatic app. Some minor editing was done in PS CS4. Settings for Hipstamatic were BlacKeys B&W/Lucifer IV
