Skywatch Friday

This week's Skywatch features are these two photos of the skylight in the Getty Center's main hall. The Getty Center is a massive museum complex in Los Angeles' Santa Monica area. The founder of the museum, Jean Paul Getty was a very rich oil tycoon who was also a major art collector who, upon his death, left a huge slice of his fortune to provide for the construction of a large museum complex to house it all. To this day, his fortune still provides for the running of the Getty Center, so the entire place is absolutely free to visit. An art and architecture (the buildings are stunning!) aficionado's dream come true :o)

To see more Skywatch photos from around the world, stop by the Skywatch Friday blog. Enjoy your weekend!
