WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Masterpiece 2

More pictures in line with this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge:  Masterpiece!

A masterpiece is, according to the photo challenge prompt:  “something extraordinary:  a place that blows your mind; a work of art or object that speaks to you; or even a location or scene that’s special, unusual, or even magical in some way.”

So here are three new takes on the word:

Self has no idea who Charles Parsons is, but his ship models, in a special room at the San Mateo County History Museum, are magnificent.

Self has seen ship models in museums in Venice and in Amsterdam.  None came close in intricacy of detail to a Charles Parsons ship.  She is not kidding.

Five stars.  His models alone make a trip to the museum worthwhile.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
