    watch the crowds

    I went twice, because the first time was a Sunday and I could not see anything.
    Second time was a weekday morning and it was still packed. The works are endlessly fascinating, especially his western-style prints and the Fuji series, but they were hung and organized with no thought to the amount of people that would attend. Everyone tends to bunch up in the same places and to see any of the smaller prints I had to file past slowly in line. This aspect was extremely disappointing. The museum should have controlled the crowds better and perhaps even timed entry into the galleries or done reservation-only ticketing.

        didn`t you notice how many people were buying the books? i think that`s because they couldn`t see the pictures. i`m also surprised they don`t make a sort of path we could just walk along. you get to one end, then you`ve gotta go back to the other side. i think it took me nearly three hours

        but they are fantastic aren`t they. the man really new what he was doing.
