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!!!!
