Light up the Cactus!


The theme for last Friday's First Friday Artwalk was "Light up the Night" and the Phoenix Art Museum got into the theme with these colored lights projected on to the cactus garden outside the museum.  I saw these before I saw the ladies with the lighted costumes that I featured yesterday.



The cactus were lit up with a rainbow of colors.

I love how the individual colors got all mixed up to give that cactus in the back a multi-colored effect.

With the right kind of light things can look real awesome.

A really artistic look for the cacti! It is very dramatic and kind of has an underwater feel to me!

Very nice, Sharon! But I don't see why y'all get to light up the cactus and when I light up a little grass I get arrested. Sheesh! :)

Hi again, Sharon. Re your comment on Ocala: That photo was taken indoors with no flash with my Canon S95 Point & Shoot. That is doubtless the best point and shoot I own. I've got several Sony Cyber-shots and used one of those in Paris (most of the photos on my Paris blog were shot with that); they are good cameras. I've also got several Panasonic Lumix cameras and they are almost as good as the Canon, but not quite. My go-to camera is a Nikon D300 which is getting old but still does a superb job (cf. photos of the St. John's river in Palatka). I use a Nikon D40 on occasion and that also does a good job and has the advantage of being smaller and lighter. I had a Nikon D70, which was one of the first Nikon digitals (paid over $1200 for it!) and that was still working very well but I gave it to my granddaughter who is taking photography in high school. I've used a Nikon point and shoot on occasion and while it did a good job it didn't quite measure up to the Canon S95.

However, if you're using a Nikon p&s, don't give it away because you get some amazing photos with it...I'm constantly blown away by the quality of your work. You might check out KenRockwell.com. He's an amazing photographer and has a fantastic website. I remember once he wrote that it's not usually the camera but the photographer. And then he showed some pictures he took with one of those little throw-away cameras and they were magnificent!

Anyway, I always look forward to your blog because I know not only will your posts be of interest but the photos will be of the highest quality.

They look so dramatic, Sharon!

Very cool- and so different from what they usually look like!

Lois said...

These are wonderful. I didn't notice multicolored cactus in the back until you mentioned it!

Judy said...

Looks nice.

Quite a nice study to be made.

Jack said...

These are great. Both of them.
