Getty Museum in L.A.

It was a really great architecture and landscaping. The exhibit of Rubens and his printmaking teamwork was quite interesting, but otherwise the outside way outdid the inside. I've got some more Getty and L.A. photos up at flickr.

Sorry, Udge, but I didn't make it to Sea Ranch after all.

I visited the Getty Museum some years ago and I have to agree with you. Not much to rave about inside.

Take care

Cool gardens! It almost looks like Jerusalem with the hills, flowers, and stone - but I still know that they have Whole Foods and we don't...yet.

Chancy - I visited years ago too, when you had to make a reservation to park your car. Not any more.

John - The biggest difference in the scene was that the stone was pure white, very stark compared to Jerusalem pink. No Whole Foods visible (upscale neighborhood zoning laws, no doubt).

Well, I don't think that I would choose Sea Ranch over the Getty either. :-) I presume you mean the architecture rather than the art, when you say "inside"?
