Where Angels Fear To Tread

Today's excursion was to the Hermitage, the art museum that is housed in the Winter Palace. Most of the time when I go there I have a hard time deciding what to focus on (thanks to my self diagnosed adult ADD), and never know whether to look at the art or the interior of the building itself.

One thing that I obsess over every time I visit is the stunning collection of sculptures the museum has, and the exquisite way the museum displays them.

So I think I'll just let the sculptures speak for themselves. You can see why I somehow managed to spend nearly four hours wandering around the palace & kept finding myself back in this hall having to take just one more photo.

I especially love this one. In low lighting the three girls look almost alive.

So I spent this rainy Sunday wandering among silent fairies & angels. Not a bad way to spend the day at all.
