This museum displayed cowboys, Indians and settlers all depicted in ways that could be good or bad or somewhere in between depending on the artist
A fellow camper saw Bob taking pictures with his new camera and noticing that he had a Canon EOS Rebel T2i figured that he was serious about photography. He figured wrongly as it is a new hobby for Bob and we tend to alternate as I have more experience than Bob but he is a fast learner and is better with a monopod than I am. The camper, whose name was also Bob, recommended an Ansel Adams display at nearby Boothe Western Art Museum in Cartersville. We decided to take Bob’s daughter April for a day out. The museum was amazing with or without the famous photographers display. Unfortunately Bob got tired of looking at the large format black and white photography and moved on to the other paintings and sculptures without getting a picture of the old fashioned dark room display. Since he had the camera for the day and didn’t take note of the names as he photographed and by the time that I found him we had to rush back to pick up Gabriel after school, you will notice that these photos aren’t labeled. The only photos that I will label are the photograph by Ansel Adams and the grand piano. If you are near the area, this museum is well worth a visit.

Part of what you think of in Westerns

What I loved about the paintings here were all the different styles, although not pictured here there was pop art, in the style of Van Gogh and also Picasso, which you normally don't associate with the west

You have to wonder what he was thinking. Between his family and the Civil War he definately had a lot on his mind
