I’m back at the Space Needle and the first thing I did was purchase my ticket to the Chihuly Gardens. Many of the exhibits were familiar.
They had been part of the show that visited The MFA but now they appeared to be permanent exhibits. Although some were inside in exhibit halls many of the larger pieces were outside including my favorite one.
My favorite is a made up of purple “candles” placed around a fallen log.
Next to the log a pod of black glass “things” seem to be swimming out from under the log. It made me think of seals or maybe dolphins. I checked this out from all sides. It is definitely my favorite.
The thing about Chihuly is that all of his pieces are beautiful and amazing.
I still had plenty of time before sunset but most of the other places were closing for the day so I headed back up the Space Needle. I might as well enjoy the views while I wait for sunset.
I saw other photographers with their tripods.
I didn’t bring mine this trip but I wish I had.
Without a tripod I would have to hand hold and the darker it got the harder that would be.
I hope these photos of Chihuly Gardens convey a little of it’s magical quality.
