Inspiration: Flora and Structure at the Getty Villa


As I'm transferring all my data from my old computer to my new one and learning about all the useful upgrades that I've been missing out on in iPhoto, I came across these photos that I took on a visit to the Getty Villa in Malibu last summer. Perhaps it's my new screen that seems to make everything look rich and vibrant that's drawing me to these images, but I thought I'd share some visual inspiration with you.


A visit to the Getty Villa can put a creative mind in a frenzy because everything is visually stimulating geometrically and organically. In a walkway each window portal is covered with a pattern; three patterns repeat every third window. In a reflecting pool nearby, lily pads of various BRILLIANT colors and shapes overlap each other, forming an inconsistent pattern. Hopefully these photos will help tell this story.
