MUSEUM SELFIE at Pinakothek der Moderne

Museum selfie, Pinakothek

Another picture from the Junior CWs.  When I first saw this, I thought, I don’t remember taking that, but that I must have done because the rest of the family are in the picture.  Then I realised that it was a selfie!  High above the serried ranks of model cars was a mirror that I didn’t notice as I made my way round the museum.    This was taken in the Pinakothek  der Moderne in Munich which is a vast building that is home to four separate museums, here we are in the Design Museum.  Just right for the week which contained Museum Selfie day!   I’m really enjoying seeing the world through my sons’ eyes.

    Heh, this is like a 21st century version of the Terracotta Warriors … 🙂

      T took me some time to work out what it all was!

    Wow Catherine, that’s such an interesting photograph with such an unusual perspective. It took me a few seconds to actually work it out. Brilliant 😀

    took me a while to work it out, lovely snap though

    Oh my! Your photo leaves me feeling all disorientated, as if my brain is battling to compute what it is seeing. Looking at the neat rows of cars reminds me of the neat way people park here…Not! Very clever photo.

    I had to look at that pic a few times until I got it….but now I do! That must have been a vast exhibit #MySundayPhoto

      It was huge, that room devoted to cars and the next to bentwood chairs!

    I didn’t have a clue what this was from the thumbnail. What a great photo, he’s obviously picked up a few skills from you 🙂 #MySundayPhoto

    I like Tim’s comment about the Terracotta Warriors, it really is rather like that. Such an interesting angle.#mysundayphoto

    A really interesting place to visit – love the perspective of this shot.

    Love the perspective on this shot. It threw me for a minute. I thought the photo was taken from a balcony looking down 😊

      That’s what I thought at first, but then it would have had to been me taking the photo, feared that I had lost my marbles!

  12. January 22, 2017 / 12:48 pm

    I had to look at it for a few seconds before working out it’s the ceiling. Fab shot!

      Turns our my son took it, which is why I don’t remember!

    It’s a really interesting perspective. Great shot

  17. January 22, 2017 / 7:12 pm

    That is a great shot. I am glad you explained it as I really couldn’t work out how you had done it. Very clever


  18. January 22, 2017 / 8:46 pm

    wow, that such a cool perspective X #mysundayphoto

    are these all toy cars? I think that from the big car in the picture. I love wandering round museums

      They are sort of plaster models of cars, lots of small ones and one full size. All running up an enormous wall.

    This is brilliant, such a great angle for a selfie. Fantastic shot x

      Thank you. It was teen 2’s idea, as he reminds me often!

    Great post. Whenever Ms B & I visit my initial home town Munich we try to squeeze in a couple of hours at one of the Pinakotheks. Pinakothek der Moderne is our favourite one.
