Weekly photo – Spiral

http://www.chihuly.com/ (Go to this website to see more Chihuly art)

 

One of my favorite things to photograph is Chihuly art. The photo above was taken in Columbus, Ohio. I was in awe of the complexity of the piece as it spiraled to and fro capturing the essence of the lighting in the room.  Combinations of transparent and opaque glass seemed to make an illusional world in which the butterflies in the conservatory could light.

 

This next photo was taken as I lay on my back in the walkway and took the photo straight up through the pieces of glass that lay above me in an archway. The images that my camera captured amazed me. It is almost like a menagerie of sea creatures in amongst flowers. Most who have seen this one say that they see jelly fish and more. This is one of my favorite photos I have ever taken.

For those of you who like to use a camera to capture wonderful pictures I challenge you to take photos of Chihuly art. Take them at varied angles and positions and watch what comes about when you view them. God bless. I hope you capture beauty in your world.  HUGZ

Weekly Photo Challenge: Floor

This is response to the weekly photo challenge that I am growing to LOVE!  Hope you enjoy this as much as I do!

This picture was taken in the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, the site where Jesus was born. This piece of flooring has been uncovered for people to see it. It is underneath the area that we walk on as tourists and worshippers today. There were other pieces of flooring that we saw while in the Holy Lands such as tiling that still exist in Herod’s home etc.  It is amazing how such glorious handwork has lasted over centuries.  I chose this one as my favorite picture taken of flooring. Perhaps in another challenge I will post more.

Here is a link to more pictures of this flooring on Bing: (taken by others)
