Yesterday I went on a little photo taking excursion with my writing group. From now until mid-Fall, the Dallas Arboretum is displaying glass sculptures by artist Dale Chihuly. As a novice photographer, I found that while they are brilliant to behold, they were a bit overwhelming to shoot in their entirety. So, I narrowed my focus to more intricate parts of the pieces. Here are few of those photos.
Dallas saw a bit of rain the night before we went, so everything was dripping wet. It made for some very nice effects.
Spider web draped across one of the exhibits.
Just a little burst of color.
These violin scrolls were my favorite pieces of the day.
A Chihuly exhibit is a must see. To learn a bit more about him [click here].

What beautiful photos! I had to pin some on my Pinterest site for others to enjoy too.
I’m so glad you like them!
Great pictures! There is a wonderful Chlhuly at, of all places, a small community college in the Midwest. They scored a gem with it as part of their permanent collection. It hangs in the three-story entryway side window in the picture here – http://www.daummuseum.org/index.cfm?section=collection&page=artwork&id=109.
Wow! Absolutely beautiful! I imagine it makes quite a statement. Thanks for sharing that with me.

Thanks for the reblog!
Beautiful work! (of course). I’m a little overwhelmed by all the photos I have (and by the beauty of the exhibit). I’m not sure how I’m going to present them in my blog.
I think it will be interesting when all is said and done (and uploaded) to look at how differently we all saw the same thing.
I took a ridiculous amount of photos, too. Can’t wait to see what you do with them.
You’re right. We all look at things so differently. It should be awesome.
