Spring Break 2014

Stepping into the Boston Public Library is like stepping into another world, across the Atlantic Ocean; it simply does not feel American at all. Part of this is the architecture-look at those columns, arches, and the coffered ceiling-but a lot of it has to do with the gorgeous frescoes done by my main man, master expat//painter John Singer Sargent.

While modern architecture does have its beauty, I long for the days when buildings were as ornamental as this. To think of all the work that went into each detail, of all the money that was poured in for the marble, sculptures, and murals; it blows my mind, especially as it is a public space for all to enjoy, even over a hundred years later.
