Gotta Catch 'Em All
I'm always amazed at how many people photograph in museums, and at how they do it.
In the Guggenheim, of course, people want photographs of the building. A good number, though, want photographs of themselves standing near the art. Do they make photo albums, and later flip through them while saying "...and here I am with the Kandinsky..." or do they collect them like sports trading cards?
