Seattle: Friday (SAM and the Ferry)

On Friday morning, we checked out of our hotel, got some breakfast at Starbucks, and headed to the Seattle Art Museum. The museum was really impressive and we enjoyed it a lot. I think Matt and I agreed that modern art is not our favorite, so it was nice to be able to spend more time looking at the areas that we enjoyed more. 🙂

The lobby of the Seattle Art Museum housed this installation – a series of the same white car with LED lights; if you look from the right side of the picture to the left you can see how it was made to look like the car was in an accident.

I took a picture of this conch because my Dad is from Key West and he went to Key West High School; their mascot is the Fighting Conch so he’s a true conch!

This painting of feathers was huge and the texture on it was amazing – it was hard not to touch it!

The plaque next to this portrait explained that the father of the family was penciled in on the column next to the mother to symbolize that he was away at war.

So, this one was my favorite. I could have stared at it all day. It’s of Mary (on the right) visiting Elizabeth (on the left). Elizabeth looked so real. I think Matt was amused by how I kept pointing and staring at her. Something about the way her eyes looked… it was just breathtaking.

This painting depicts the conversion of Paul. I love how the words God is speaking to him are written out across the painting.

After we finished at the Seattle Art Museum, we took the ferry across to Bainbridge. The weather was perfect so we got to see the Seattle skyline more clearly than we had the night before.

Again, I’m about the quality of the pictures…I’m still learning how to use the camera and I had to edit the pictures just to get them this good! 🙂

Once we were on Bainbridge Island, we made our way to Lake Crescent in the foothills of the Olympic Mountains. I’ll share that part of the trip in another post. 🙂
