Quotography: New Year

A new art challenge!!!! This one is called Quotography, hosted by Kaylene on her blog, My Whisperings. The idea is that every week a theme will be posted, and participants will submit a photo they've taken and a quote to accompany it. The photo may be altered digitally, but not so the original photo is unrecognizeable.

This reminds me that a good New Year's resolution for me would be to take more photos. Currently, I take pictures mostly when we're traveling, so I'll be using those as much as I can at first. But I hope to expand my horizons and start taking more pictures in my daily (non-traveling) life.

Here's my submission for this week's challenge. I took the photo in a small art museum in Tel Aviv, Israel, about a year ago. The books were displayed in the artist's studio, as he left it when he died.

Thanks for this wonderful idea, Kaylene!
