A Movie, a Gallery and Two Cell Phones

Last night I went to Real Art Ways to see an Australian movie, The Hunt for the Wilderpeople.
(Very much recommended.)  RAW is a non-profit art gallery/performance space with a movie theater.


A gallery at one end hangs rotating exhibitions of art works.
A lone woman on her cell phone was framed against some big contemporary paintings.


When I went behind a large, colorful screen, the woman on the cell phone was still there.


Her friend joined her for a selfie while her boy friend sauntered over . . .


. . . to take her to the reception going on at the other end of the facility.


When I got out of the movie, the gallery was closed.


RAW is a great place.  I'm glad I had my cell phone, too.  I kinda like my iPhone photos.

Using a cell phone in a gallery is a bit of a blasphemy to me UNLESS the owner is using the camera. That particular exhibit shows some oversized artwork; hope it was interesting. Yes, using the iPhone is fun and I am beginning to tote around with me more often.

It's an interesting looking gallery space. That movie is playing at a local theatre here for a few days. I'll have to check it out.

Looks like a fine gallery Jack. Haven't heard of that movie but will have to check around to see if it's playing anywhere. That phone does take nice photos.

This looks like a great place. I especially like your first two shots.

Yes, it really looks like a great and nice place to spend an evening.
Re your comment on DBP: Jack, if you decide to visit South Tyrol, I'll be glad to be your tourist guide. Let me know.

This looks like a great art gallery and theater. Thank you for the film recommendation. I'll add it to my list of films to see. Looks like you had a good time documenting your visit to RAW.

I've seen a little book of iPhone photos called The Best Camera Is The One You Have With You. I agree.

Often you can't tell the difference between a cell phone photo and a 'proper' one. These are great and the phone is much less intrusive in such situations.
