Dale Chihuly at the Phoenix Botanical Garden
We finally made it to see the Chihuly glass blown art exhibit in the midst of the desert flora and fauna. What an amazing display of creativity using shapes and colors to imitate the beauty of the desert landscape. Everyone was in a festive mood with special events and mixed beverages being consumed. This thing is a total sell out every week, especially the 4 pm till closing time, obviously because you get to catch the magic hour in photography and then the illumination around, through and even withing the sculptures creats an interplay of light that I know I will remember for the rest of my life. And the camera equipment people had, from cell phones to professional gear. Everyone wants to take home visual reminders of this unique event. I took 160 pictures.
