Photos of the Week: Gathering Place

I'm far from the first photographer to make this observation, but nonetheless I really enjoy watching people interact with art in art museums.  In fact, I enjoy this almost as much as the art itself.  In this case, a gathering of people in Georges Seurat's "A Sunday on La Grande Jatte" at Chicago's Art Institute becomes a point of gathering in the real world as well, as though the scene has extended outward into the museum itself.
