Leonardo da Vinci

Tim A. Cummins @ 8:54 pm  

Kathy and I had fun today!
We took a field trip to the High Museum to see the Leonardo da Vinci exhibit.

I love being downtown shooting pictures of the buildings.


I have two heroes: Benjamin Franklin and Leonardo da Vinci. Both guys were artists, musicians and writers besides scientists and inventors.

I like the idea of being a Renaissance man.

Here’s Mr. Tim’s tip for the day.

If you have a Bank of America ATM/Visa card you can go for free to the exhibit as long as you have your card with you and it’s the first weekend of the month.

Free is free, baby.

There was a huge line for the place. I walked to the very head of the line and talked to a supervisor. I said I’d called ahead and had my Visa card and could I get a ticket now? She said sure and printed them off right there! We waited in line to go upstairs for about thirty minutes then went right on in.

It was a great exhibit showing many of his sketches for the huge bronze horse he wanted to make.


It was fun to be that close to a real genius.
