Reading Museum - Bikes and Marshes

The popular exhibit "Born to be Wild" has been extended a couple of months and today there was a great audience entering the museum. The parking lot was overflowing and cars were even parked in the grass around the perimeter. I have never witnessed such a turnout, but it was good to see the support.

The crowd was as diverse as the exhibits with a number of leather boots and Harley jackets juxtaposed beside loafers and sweater vests, but unanimously they agreed that the bikes were impressive works of art.

"Marshes: The Disappearing Edens" was the other reason I went to the museum. Renowned photographer William Burt impressed us with his 30+ large crystal clear landscapes and bird photography of marshes from his backyard in CT to SK Canada.
