The Metropolitan Museum of Art - This Week's Featured Photo

Just posted to the museum's Facebook wall: "See this week's featured Flickr photo."

"I thought that I'd mix it up a bit this week and select a photo from way back in the pool. I found this one taken by Michael Cinique in 1987 on page 155 of the group pool.

I love everything about this photo: the moment, the expression on the woman's face, the framing, the square format, but I especially love the light.

It looks as though it was taken at that moment in the evening when the sun bounces off the windows of the buildings across 5th Avenue and shines through the trees onto the plaza in front of the Museum."
