So many of you have expressed an enjoyment of the pics from the Chihuly Center here in Seattle at the Space Needle, that I decided to share some more. It is an awesome exhibit and he does have some amazing, different displays! Hope you enjoy these!

There is so much wisdom in those quotes, particularly on how to live a rich and contented life. The artwork seems to express those sayings in a visually awe-inspiring way!

Fabulous shots Sylvia. Love the Space Needle from that angle, and the Chihuly glass always amazes me.

Questions: 1) Have you ever been up the Space Needle? I hate heights and undoubtedly would decline at invitation to visit the top. 2) Where were the other photos taken...they look like Chihuly (sp?) glass...very beautiful. At first I thought maybe you were in an aquarium but then I looked more closely and decided I was all wet.

Very beautiful artwork ! I love the colours and the glass work like an underwater world. I don't like all modern art but this is like a fairy tale with beautiful colour combinations.

Peg Peter said...

Beautiful shot of the Space Needle. I love the angle. Last time I was in Seattle I only got as close as Pikes market, so never really had a chance at such a good close up.

I saw the Chihuly exhibit in Tacoma several years ago and was blown away. You've captured those nicely too!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. :)

Gattina said...

Fantastic pictures ! Must be a very interesting exhibition !

Andrea said...

We have had Chihuly exhibits in Chicago and they are magnificent. As soon as I saw your pictures I knew what I was looking at. Lovely shots, Lucky Lady ... Thanks

That's it! You have fresh seafood, green views, rain, and Chihuly glass. We don't have any of that in the desert (although we have other delights like cacti, rattlers, tarantulas, and cowboys), so we're planning a trip up to our old neighborhood in WA state.

As soon as I started to write that I was going on a search for rain, guess what? It started to rain here. We savor every drop, so I'm going outside to do my old lady rain dance now.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
