    I shot all my interior photos using my Pany 20mm on the E-PL2 using available light. Flash is not allowed. There is a lot of amazing stuff that you can literally walk up.

    This was a very enjoyable visit. Hope my pictures are able to do these priceless works of art justice.

    What's interesting is that the Getty Museum was originally established as a tax write-off by J.P Getty. :wink:

    I did a little research before driving up from San Diego to the Getty in LA. The original trust was established with $1.2 Billion in Texaco stock. In the approx. 10 years that the Getty has been operating, and spending as much money as the Art world can absorb, the trust is now valued at close to $8 Billion! :eek:

    I wish my net worth had similar problems!

    The Getty is great ... love how they use natural light whenever possible.

    You should try visiting the Getty Villa sometime too. Gorgeous.
