MANHATTAN – I made a pilgrimage to The Cloisters, a branch of the Metropolitan Museum in upper Manhattan today. It’s most famous for its Unicorn Tapestries but I actually trekked here to catch up with the Northern outpost of a Met show on Catholicism and fashion. Sorry for the big post – I was busy for a change.

Day 3224 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
