It was a hot and steamy weekend…
…okay. Just kidding.
I schlepped down into the city for the second weekend in a row. If you read last Sunday’s entry, you know that this is a rarity for me. I blame my friend, Bill. He went to the Dallas Arboretum a few days ago and posted some great pictures to his blog. I love the arboretum, and I am fascinated by the Chihuly exhibit that is currently on display though out the gardens. So, I decided to braved the 100+ degree temperatures on Saturday. I spent about three hours baking in the sun and taking lots of pictures. Here are a few of my favorites:
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a red dragonfly before.
I don’t know the species, but this guy was very vocal and not at all happy to have me wondering around beneath his tree.
Chihuly. I love this exhibit and this piece, in particular. I’ve tried three times to photograph it. Unsuccessfully. This time was different. I experimented a lot more with my manual settings. I think it also helped that it was a virtual ghost town and I was able to take my time.
I almost didn’t share this one. I wanted to keep it all for myself. But then, it was my favorite of the day, so how could I not share?.

Once again … beautiful! Your favorite is mine, too, so thanks for sharing your wonders with us.
Thanks, Katy. I think I am going to have it printed, I love it so much. It makes me happy that it’s your favorite, too.
Your favorite is spectacular. Chihuly glass and water reflections – doesn’t get much better!
Thank you, Terri. I don’t think it does gets better than that.
The reflections around the Carnival boat – it’s so hard to take a photo of this scene that hasn’t been done a hundred times before – but you pulled it off here. Great work!
Thanks, Bill. I spent a lot of time there trying to get just the right shot
What gorgeous photographs! The image where it looks like the reflections are trailing across the surface of the water is particularly lovely. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you so much!
