Chihuly and Desert Botanical Gardens!

Monday morning greetings from Nashville, Tn.!!!!!

I’m on my way headed South for a couple of shoots this week and it’s great to be back on the road once again!

A few weeks ago I was out West on some different shoots and I was able to have a little time to shoot some photos for myself!!!! I took a few hours when I was in Phoenix to get over to the Desert Botanical Gardens for some desert photography. Much to my surprise, they also had glass sculptures from Dale Chihuly in the gardens. I’ve been very fortunate to see Chihuly’s work in both the St. Louis and Dallas botanical gardens in past years. Seeing his work in those cities and environments was great and seeing them this time in Phoenix was really different. To see how some of the sculptures worked with the desert colors and textures was wonderful! It’s quite the contrast from our Midwestern grasses and trees!!! The other thing that was great as well was seeing the desert cactus and other flowers in full bloom!!! I’ve seen one or two types of cactus blooming in the past, but to see 10 or 15 different types at one time was amazing!!!

Here’s a few of my snaps from the Desert Botanical Gardens along with the Chihuly glass art work!

I hope that you have a great week and thanks as always for checking out my work!!!!

Chihuly and Thanksgiving

New Mexico greetings to one and all!!!!

It’s been a little over a year since the Caterpillar Visitors Center and the Peoria Riverfront Museum opened up in downtown Peoria and it sure has been a great improvement to our city!

For those of you that remember Lakeview Museum, the PRM is a huge upgrade and they really have done a nice job with it! Since PRM has opened, we’ve had a couple of major shows with a great show of photographs from nature photographer Ansel Adams and now a show of glass work from the George R. Stroemple Collection. In this collection is the work of one of my favorite artists, Dale Chihuly! Chihuly’s glass work is incredible and if you’ve never seen it, do yourself a favor and come down to PRM in the next few months and check it out!

Here’s my snap of the exhibit room at PRM of the Chihuly and Friends show!

It’s Thanksgiving week and like me, I have a feeling that a lot of people that I know will be taking advantage of this short work week and traveling! I’ve traveled down here to New Mexico to spend Thanksgiving with my folks and am very happy about that!!!! I’m thankful for the people and things in my life, so this is a great time of the year to reflect on all of that!

If you’re going to travel this week to visit family and friends for Thanksgiving, make it a safe one!!!!!

Have a great week as always and thanks again for checking out my work!!!!
