Two in One


Lately, I've been making a habit of going to the Desert Botanical Garden every Thursday in the late afternoon between three and four.  I usually spend the first 40 minutes walking as fast as I can while weaving my way around the crowds and then after that I wander around to take photos for a little while.  This photo is from last week when we had several days of cloudy weather.  I noticed one place I could stand and catch two of the Chihuly sculptures in one photo.  The blues of these two complement each other rather well don't you think?

Each one of them is in excellent company on this picture and the color of the sky completes beautifully the scene.
You have such a good eye Sharon.

I have photographed the Chihuly installation about a half dozen times, but never noticed that angle. well done.

I knew a girl once who had tangly hair like that. Her hair wasn't blue, though. And this is much prettier. I like the blue-white sunburst, too. Or is that a thistle?

The Botanical Garden is a Phoenix treasure!

That is incredible! I love that the shapes also set off and contrast one another...

And the pale sky doesn't take away from the blue of the sculptures. I like that.

That is a good exercise place! That blue looks good against the cloudy sky.

They're beautiful, Sharon, and they contrast well off each other.

I really love that starburst, Sharon!

How I envy your trips to this Garden! What a great job you did, setting up the shot.

This makes for a wonderful contrast. The curlycues on the left and the spikes on the right. The left sculpture seems like an upside down chandelier.

It is lovely, indeed.

I'm always intrigued by the tangledness of Chihuly's glass, and these are perfect in this setting.
