I was terribly sick all last week so when on Friday I finally started feeling like myself again, I headed straight to the Met for Friday Late Nights. With no agenda but to spend some time with art and civilization, I stumbled into a William Eggleston exhibition that I didn’t know about. Although I have no idea how I hadn’t heard about it sooner (seeing how he is my favorite color photographer and all), it was an incredible surprise. After days spent in bed delirious feeling so grey, Eggleston’s vibrant photographs filled my evening with color at last.

The way I have always looked at it is the world is in color. And there’s nothing we can do about that. – William Eggleston
