John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art

Going through old pictures has taken me almost 2 years. *lol*


The family, my lola, and I went to The John & Mable Ringling Museum of Art last December 22, 2008. Wow, 22 and 2008. XD; I remember the museum has an expensive ticket fee, but it was worth it. I’m glad one of my grandparents brought us there. 🙂

A better view of David’s ass


What really awed me were the old paintings. There were Italian, Deutsche, French, and Spanish to name a few. I don’t even want to know how much they could possibly cost now.

There was an Egyptian exhibit which was the freakiest section, I think. Cameras were prohibited, so I only got pictures from the activity area. 😛
