Destination Favorites

Today my inner child was poised and ready to take flight due to inclement weather. I timed my escape from work to stay home in order to draft a few post. Photographers from Stylish Heath have been sending images of their destinations, and I have not had a moment to cipher through the media. So, this morning I settled in with a pot of coffee, a small basket of scones and a bit of time on my side to create a few posts.{Check out this stylish sunset taken by Terlene at Ala Moana Park in Oahu, Hawaii with cloud formations in the sky.

{The stylish Napoleonic rooms photographed by Tony at the Chateau Fontainebleau are absolutely indulgent…. I mean who would like to come home each night to relax in these over decorated rooms or spend the evening on the Roue de Paris, the ferris wheel that has been installed on the Place de la Concorde in Paris}


It has been a while since having the opportunity to read text and view photographs from everyone’s journeys and these are pictures that truly stand out…so enjoy!


Our team left Marrakech for Paris, which is the ultimate way to travel from one exotic metropolis to another. Stylish Heath reporters are in the City of Light checking out Le Musée de Rodin located at the Hôtel Biron on the rue de Varenne, while several of us went to New York City to explore the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Fifth to review the Rodin exhibit before it left yesterday.

Our plan is to divide between two continents, while dealing with the assigned topic, and examining the extraordinary range of work from Auguste Rodin, the only sculptor of modern age to be on par with Michelangelo.

A consummate draughtsman and sculptor, Rodin’s most famous works were his Age of Bronze, The Thinker, The Kiss, and Monument to Balzac.

The Age of Bronze is where Rodin began his career, his first succès de scandale. The statue though unconventional in its lack of a specific subject, reflected in the number of different titles Rodin would give, and the immediacy of the strained but graceful body of the ‘common man’ aroused suspicion and disapproval. Official protest caused accusations that Rodin used life casts, but all had been proved wrong not so much by the photographs of the model, but for the artist reputation as an excellent modeler.

Stay stylish,
