Chihuly with a hint of Christmas! (Friday Flowers)

These flowers were outside in the gardens of the Chihuly Glass and Garden exhibition in Seattle. It was the end of the day, the sun was setting and people were not wanting to stop whilst I took my happy snaps.

Consequently I wasn’t particularly happy with any of my photos. That was until I transferred one to my phone. Oh the joy of photo editing apps… they breathe new life into anything!

 

 

 

 

 

Oh to break the glass flower ceiling (Friday Flowers)

It may not have happened at the end of last year as many of us had hoped and dreamed, but it will happen… eventually.

That glass ceiling will be broken by women and equality will finally rain down upon females everywhere… eventually!

Looking in from the Outside (Friday Flower)

This glass flower must have measured at least two-feet across the top. There was an entire room of these flowers on exhibit at the Chihuly Glass and Garden in Seattle. The lighting accentuating their color and beauty.

If only I could have brought one home. Or more importantly, if only I could have afforded to bring one home – oh how wonderful that would have been!

Flashy Fake Flowers (Friday Flowers)

For something different this month, rather than editing photos of my fresh flowers, I’m going to be using flowers from the Chihuly Glass and Garden exhibition we visited in Seattle at the beginning of the year.

Chihuly’s glass is magnificent without editing. However, in this instance I couldn’t help myself by upping both the contrast and color just a smidge!🤣

 

 

 

 

The Colours of Chihuly (Travel Theme: Colours)

The shapes Chihuly creates are simply amazing. Size is definitely not deterrent either to this remarkable artist. What I find even more incredible are the magnitude of colours used!

When wandering through his displays at the Chihuly Garden and Glass Exhibition in Seattle, there doesn’t appear to be any favoured colour. Every shade of every colour of the spectrum are used. Truly beautiful!

Colours is this week’s Travel Theme from Ailsa at Where’s My Backpack?

 

 

 

 

Feather Underfoot (Monochrome Monday)

Walking outside through the Chihuly Glass and Garden exhibition in Seattle, as breathtaking as the glass sculptures were, the living plants were equally as interesting. Particularly the tiny ones.

These succulents were so tiny they could easily have been missed. It was only this feather, making the small even tinier, that drew my attention to these delightful little succulents.
