Snippets of Color


A lot of you seem to love super-saturated color
like those you see in Dale Chihuly's masterpieces.


And since I'm in Venice, so near the island of Murano
where glass making has been a way of life,


I am inspired to feature photographs
 of my favorite snippets of Chihuly color.


Enjoy!


(All these photos are closeups of small sections of
Chihuly's Bridge of Glass in Tacoma. 
To photograph them, you have to shoot up,
so stiff necks go along with the territory.)

Hi meri in Venice...where the scenery is amazing, the food delicious, if costly, and the history enveloping...
like the waves at a very high tide...

Happy days

What inspiring fluid colors - there's a poem in each piece! You are lucky to be where you are.
