Lilly : Do the Art Galleries over there allow photography, Ronnie ?
Ronnie : No, but they permit my kind of picture-taking.
Lilly : Yes, I can fully understand that.

How many flash photos could you get away with before being kicked out / arrested, do you think?
6 Jul 2010 7:39am
i was casually leaning on a large wooden altar at the Art Institute of Chicago once - until I was firmly reminded by security that it was from about the 9th Century (though they didn't quite express it in those terms!)...

@djedfre: Strewth . . those stewards can be tough on a guy - lucky you didn't put your beer can on there ! (Ronnie)
You did it ! Bravo ;)
At the Musée d'Orsay in Paris, now pix are forbidden but i don't care, years ago i did what i dreamt of : putting my finger on Van Gogh's 1889 last self-portrait and touched it half a sec ! A best souvenir than a click for once ;)
6 Jul 2010 9:12am
(a "better" souvenir i meant ! ;)
6 Jul 2010 9:13am
@k@: Smiles . . I like the original version ! (Ronnie )
With the exception of the disturbing use of flash, taking photos at museums (and churches and ...) can be a free way of promoting them.
6 Jul 2010 9:38am
@António Pires: . . but might mean selling less postcards ? (Ronnie the skeptic)
So quick as a flash were you Ronnie and it drained your juice. Bet you swore you'd been framed when you felt that heavy hand on your shoulder.
6 Jul 2010 9:46am
They are all forgeries anyway :)
6 Jul 2010 10:01am
Apart from the comic content the picture is beautiful and the colors so gorgeously saturated. Though I suppose they need a battery seller there also.
6 Jul 2010 11:08am
is it just me or is the list of places you cannot take photos getting longer day by day
6 Jul 2010 11:15am
Fantastic! I'm just amazed to see how the frames of the both paintings are almost one! I really can't understand why you're not allowed to take photo's if you don't use a flash light. Love all those comment especially Karine is really bad :)
6 Jul 2010 11:19am
i loved reading the label in the british museum saying: photographing is allowed
6 Jul 2010 11:44am
@yz: Yes, it seems off that the museums - including the wonderful V&A permit photography but galleries and so many other places do not. (Ronnie)
~~haha. good cool shot!~~ with humour:")
some places do allow photography!

Fancy framing. It's messing with my mind!
6 Jul 2010 1:36pm
@Amanda: Yes, must admit that framing was the most tricky part of this one ! (Ronnie)
I concur with the comment above. Most excellent "framing."
6 Jul 2010 1:43pm
@Zoltan: Thanks, Zoltan.
What beautiful warm light without a camera flash! When I try to do this, I always forget to turn off the audio sounds of my camera. And then I am quickly spotted. :-)
6 Jul 2010 3:01pm
*lol* Story of my photographic life! :-D
6 Jul 2010 3:02pm
@MadScientist: ha ha . . yes, you must see this very often in your specialty interiors ! (Ronnie)
I love the way this is "framed"! Story of my life, too about the batteries!
6 Jul 2010 3:23pm
@Tracy: Yes, we all have stories about "the one that got away" (Ronnie)
however with or withour flash the quality (le rendu) of the paintings is so bad that it is worth buying a good book
6 Jul 2010 4:12pm
Un petit coucou de France!
6 Jul 2010 5:01pm
nice shot :)
6 Jul 2010 5:52pm
Good to see you two are still up to your tricks!
6 Jul 2010 5:54pm
@willow: Hello, Willow - lovely to see you back around ! (Ronnie)
Always getting into trouble, you are. And now unprepared to boot. Lilly has her hands full clearly, and the patience of a saint. ;)
6 Jul 2010 6:04pm
@Bettina: (from Lilly)
OH Bettina.... you have no idea.... :)
6 Jul 2010 6:09pm
Funny dialogue and funny picture!. Both excellent and creative! . Better yet intelligent dialogue!
6 Jul 2010 6:12pm
@Fonts: Thanks, Adela. (Ronnie)
Lilly has shown the grand masters in a natural situation, while you Ronnie with your dead battery have chosen the den of iniquity......... I wonder if that has a meaning :0
6 Jul 2010 6:57pm
@Michael: Yeah, there's a message in there somewhere - I can feel it ! (Ronnie)
cracking, nice one
6 Jul 2010 7:15pm
Shoot away, Ronnie! They wont notice.
6 Jul 2010 8:07pm
Great zig-zag connecting framework. Lilly is the voice of (t)reason! :)
6 Jul 2010 8:20pm
@Ken: Thanks, Ken - that framework is kinda growing on me ! (Ronnie-the-Uncertain)
We were at the NAtional Cathedral in DC this weekend and it wasn't until I saw a no photo sign in my photos on the computer did I realize that I was performing a "no-no"! Oh well, I haven't been struck down just yet....
6 Jul 2010 10:07pm
@Denise: Sounds like a posting-idea for Our Two Sense, Denise ! (Ronnie)
6 Jul 2010 11:04pm
Very creative and Funny! Fine composition! Love this!
7 Jul 2010 12:00am
@Wild Mustang Photography: The composition felt rather strange in the making and I hovered over 'Delete' more than once . . but I now like it myself and cannot imagine the posting looking any other way. Strange how we can condition ourselves ! Thanks, Pam. (Ronnie)
Why I always loved my old Sony F828 - I could turn off the flash and sound, rotate the lens and shoot casually from the waist while "looking at my watch". ;-)
7 Jul 2010 12:15am
@B. Thomas: Spoken like a true terrorist ! - I shall have you put on the 'Watch List' ! . . (Ronnie)
Lovely framing, no pun intended. Always so very creative, great job. I agree for some reason the list of places keeps growing where we are not allowed to take pictures, yet everyone carries a cell phone. Amazing the fear we must cause by carrying a camera unconcealed.
7 Jul 2010 1:43am
@John Maslowski: Thanks, John. Yes, London seems to have attracted the worst reputation for repressive policing of photographers and I have lost count of the number of times I've been stopped, advised, cautioned and checked on the street against lists of known offenders. Inside a galley is kinda different and has more than a little to do with selling overpriced postcards and guidebooks. (Ronnie)
Splendide !... bravo
Beaucoup d'endroits interdisent maintenant !...
7 Jul 2010 11:40am
@tataray: Merci. . Oui, la restriction tellement !
I'll just look surprised and say I didnt know such ruling,picture would have been captured anyway!haha
7 Jul 2010 1:45pm
Aside from admiring the wonderful earthy tones and the gorgeous detail of the frame I got a nice chuckle thinking how many 'guilty' photographers are out there! ;) Pushing the envelop especially when someone tells us "no". And, no one says "NO" to Ronnie! ;) Only Lilly truly understands how Ronnie's mind works, at least I hope she does because someone needs to control Ronnie from time to time! :)
Thank you for sharing your brilliant work! I always look forward to your posts and have to admit that I often wait till you get enough comments so I can have that extra entertainment to go with your fantastic work. I just enjoy it so much :)
7 Jul 2010 4:06pm
@Magda: Thank you for those lovely thoughts, Magda. I agree that the Comments we are lucky to attract here become an essential read and they do add so much to our Postings. It is sad when some of our 'Regulars' drop out of the loop and we miss them greatly - but new faces appear and add a fresh look to the established patterns, too ! Thanks again, Magda. (Ronnie)
Good evening, Ronnie
There are interesting paintings. I think that some people photographed these pictures without permission. With a little camera and without flash, you might be lucky that you will not get caught. Now you have an interesting souvenir. For that I give you 5 stars ***** Again it was very interesting and informative on your side. Have a nice evening and all the best. Thanks for your nice comments. Dear greetings Christel
7 Jul 2010 5:34pm
Cool! I like the frame! :) And the batt warning... oeeeee.... that normally happens to me; that was until my husband bought me 2 x sets of new batteries for my birthday... it wasn't my ideal birthday gift (it wasn't even on my list) but maybe he was trying to tell me something.... I don't think I'll ever know how a man's brain works ;)
7 Jul 2010 9:19pm
This is a fabulous presentation - and I'm enjoying the comments. Heavens - art, art, art, art, art, !
7 Jul 2010 9:45pm
Another great composition, very beautiful and funny picture !!
8 Jul 2010 3:39am
very interesting , i like it :)
8 Jul 2010 7:21am
A superb framing and I like this low light !
8 Jul 2010 10:13am
I can understand that flash can make damage to an old painting but museum and galleries often prohibit photographs for commercial reason (shop before the exit) and I am not sure they have the right for doing that.
Beautiful photos of those paintings by the way.
8 Jul 2010 10:56am
I wonder why it's forbidden to take shot in some museum. Maybe they think that the artworks may explode if I take a pic.
8 Jul 2010 1:38pm
@Luca Bobbiesi: (See my Response to Krisu, below - my best guess)
A great combination of fine photography of beautiful art work and funny element makes for an interesting interplay.
8 Jul 2010 2:39pm
@Don: Thanks for the tick in each box, Don - have a great day !
What would really happen to an old painting if you take a photo of it with flash?
8 Jul 2010 7:01pm
@Krisu: Constant bursts of intense light day by day would begin to affect the pigment in the paint, I guess . . (Ronnie)
I really have to make a comment on this post - your work here is absolutely amazing. The low battery message is a work of art. Maybe you will find the time to post a "behind the scenes" shot for this? Loved looking at the basics for the landslip shot. BTW - the Ronnie/Lilly dialogue is as good as always :)
8 Jul 2010 7:45pm
@dobbino: Thanks, Rob . . no 'behind-the-scenes' on this one but, who knows, you may see more of the paintings ! (Ronnie)
You got away with it!
I've been caught more times than I care to admit, but at least I've never been kicked out (yet).
8 Jul 2010 8:27pm
@bluechameleon: Yeah, those rules is for breaking and it is more about flogging us postcards than anything else, I'm sure ! Thanks, Sharon. (Ronnie)
i like to sneak photos in big old palaces. so long as the guards are just board enough, they start talking to each other and don't pay attention ;)
9 Jul 2010 1:43am
oh gaa, one time i snuck a photo at sfmoma
and the flash went off and it caused such a ruckus
but i was let go with only a warning
9 Jul 2010 4:37am
très belles couleurs, et belle atmopshère.
