These are photos of artwork that I took at the Neka Art Museum, there were too many to include  in my travel blogs Indonesia : Bali Hai - Sept 2007 &  Indonesia : Bali Hai 3 - Day 2 08/10/11. The rest are shown here. Enjoy.

The photos were taken at the Neka Art MuseumEntry is at Rp20,000 pax and opening hours are 9:00am-5:00pm Mondays to Saturdays; and noon to 5:00pm on Sundays.
An advise to others taking photos at the Museum, the lighting conditions does not allow good photography with instant cameras (like the one I was using). They don't allow flash in the museum, so either use a cameras stand or a better camera. Otherwise, like me, you may end up with many blur photos.

Also, there are labels next to the artwork which gives the name of the art piece and a brief description. I was using Macro mode to take photos of this labels and switching back to normal mode, sometimes I got mixed up and took the photos of the artwork in Macro mode - again those came out blurry. So my advice to avoid this mix-up, is to use one good camera to take the art, and another camera to take the art piece again and the label, both in Macro mode.
Some of the blurred pictures I may include here - because there are either outstanding or too renown to be ignored. My apologies for that.
