[GPP] BMAG - Corrosive Shame

[GPP] BMAG
Sunday was "off to the museum" day. After signing a piece of paper (and I have no idea what it said) the nice people gave me a sticker that said Photography Permit and I was set loose.

The results are at http://www.disturbing.org.uk/portfolio/portfolio-bmag0510.php and I've popped a few below. I get the impression some of the stained glass might work nicely as a desktop background so I'll do these on request.

First here's one that I took outside, currently featured on my blog and then a couple of samples are under the cut.

Museum of Odd Assorted Bits of Junk and Paintings?

I'm not sure they'd go for that interpretation...

I was going off your first picture, which by the way doesn't link to anything, as it looks like a pile of rusty garbage in a skip. But I've heard some people think that's art.

Link is now fixed. It's something you either "like" or "don't" - that's the long and short of it really.

Yes, I've long thought all art is subjective.

Very good captures. You should ask them if they want some for their catalogue/brochure. :o)

Hm, I'm now tempted to do something like this at the Fitz at one point.

nice enough.. not blown away TBH.. and i didnt think it did the place justice.. its a wonderful gallery and building.. sorry.. didnt like this set as much

No need to apologise. I've been round BMAG a number of times and didn't set out to "do the place justice" - merely to use it as a location for some detail/alternative photos.

what i met was .. there are some really good and strnage tweaks and corners to the place.. i just didnt see anything terribly inspiring in the set.. im sure they arent ment to be a come and see our wonderful museumn.. but.. i just thought they were bordering on cliché

Gotcha. I think you're being a little harsh - but then I would say that :-P

yes, well im not exactly know for my reserving opinon.

they are good in a techincical light, but i just think they could easily have been taken by mr two - bit - bob (says me who just about points and shoots!) ready for a press release

its really quite a compliment... ive come to expect better.
