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!

 

 

 

 

 

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?

Unexpected Hint of Red (A Photo a Week Challenge: Red)

Standing in the middle of the Grand Canyon, swamped by the surrounding grandeur, colours muted from the dust, seeing this burst of vivid red hidden within the tendrils of this plant was an unexpected surprise.

 Initially I thought this plant was a cactus but after an hour of googling, unfortunately I still haven’t found a name for it. Anyways, RED is this week’s A Photo a Week Challenge from Nancy Merrill Photography.
