On the Road Again
January 1-2, 2022
We made two stops this trip to Las Cruces.
Especially for our photography friends: Although we enjoyed being a kid again and riding the train through the Indiana Museum in Indianapolis, a very small exhibit of only 20 photographic images created wonder for us. An annual world-wide competition sponsored by Nikon features the winners of photography through the microscope. Some of It's A Small World winners:
16th place winner = nylon stocking
12th place = human hair
2nd place = embryonic development of a clownfish
1st place = dorsal view of bones and scales (blue) and lymphatic vessels (orange) of a juvenile clownfish
Crystal Bridges, Bentonville, AK
We little expected to be awed by the projected expansion of the aesthetically beautiful architecture of Crystal Bridges, a museum funded by the widow of Sam Walton (of Walmart fame). The plan is to enlarge its present structure by 65%. In the video the left three buildings are now in existence. We were delighted to find a new attraction: the Bachman-Wilson House constructed in the 1950's by Frank Lloyd Wright—meticulously deconstructed and rebuilt on the grounds.
