Art of Chihuly

I wanted to capture something a bit different with this image. This is glass sculpture by Chihuly currently on display at the Virginia Museum of Fine Art. Now, I would take a photo with all the colors showing. But while I was there, one of the moderators suggested a grayscale image to see what it would look like. So here's the result. I allowed only a small portion of color to show through. The original colors are truly amazing, but so is this grayscale take as well. I was interested in the floor reflection and just how graceful everything looks. 

The floor is a black plexiglass tiling. It's quite dramatic with all those colors and everything else being dark. The idea came from Chihuly creating the glass and throwing them into the water (I believe) in Finland. He would then send boats out to gather the pieces back up, and the pieces looked so lovely inside the boats that he decided to do this piece. There's actually two boat setups, side by side. I only captured one of them.

Too Slow....

Writing has been kind of slow of late. The introduction to the ipad was a nice little way to get some words out. But after an episode of changing something online, then on the ipad, and then clashing the two and having to reinstall… ugh! Six parts later to create a chapter, I’ve now switched ….
