This past weekend, my husband and I went in to Boston on a little getaway and to see some exhibits. At the MFA we saw the Samurai exhibit:
It was quite impressive! I also couldn’t believe the pictures came out as I wasn’t able to use a flash and the lighting was actually low.
Then we also went to the MOS to see the Dead Sea Scrolls — really fascinating! I wasn’t allowed to take any pictures at all there though.
In keeping with my “odd things in hotel rooms” theme, here’s a picture of the mirror in our bathroom – complete with TV! We got Wimbledon coverage while we brushed our teeth. 🙂
While we were only gone 24 hours, it was nice to get away and also nice to get back.
Saturday Snapshot is now hosted by Melinda at westmetromommy.blogspot.com

What a great getaway. Those are the best “moments in time.” Thanks for sharing…and here’s MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT POST
Looks like you had fun! Love the “odd things you find” photo!
What a rewarding 24 hrs. Beautiful photos of the Samurai exhibits. And… mirror with TV? Intriguing. 😉
The Samurai look spectacular, and the Dead Sea Scrolls are fascinating – but a TV in a mirror? Is it a reflection, or was it really there? Thank you for visiting my blog.
It’s really there! They have a little remote and everything!! 🙂
What a neat exhibit! Love that there’s a tv in the mirror!!
I’d love to go see the Dead Sea Scrolls!!!
the Dead Sea Scrolls were quite fascinating – it was amazing to come so close to ancient history. And I have to say – the Samurai exhibit materials were in incredible condition -most looked brand new and they were hundreds of years old!
Great get away! and you must have nerves of steel to have such clear pics in low light! Well done, grasshopper!
I’m curious to know the origins of the Samurai exhibit. How was the choice made for this exhibit to be at the Museum of Fine Art? Is it a permanent one or a travelling exhibit? Great photos!
Hi, Allison – I’m not sure how they decided to exhibit it, but it is on loan from the Barbier-Mueller Museum in Dallas, TX, which apparently has a large Samurai collection.It is here until August. Here is some info on it if you are local: http://www.mfa.org/exhibitions/samurai -Beth 🙂
