Weekly Photo Challenge: Ornate

Wow!  This week’s photo challenge, “Ornate,” was a tough one for me.  I simply don’t have much in the way of ornate in my portfolio.  Most of my photography focuses on the outdoors, rather than man-made objects.  But, these words from the challenge caught my eye, “…share something unabashedly ornate — where it’s clear that the creators pulled no stops and went all out. Whether it’s a breathtaking triumph…”

Ahhhh….breathtaking triumph.  Well, that made me think of the Chihuly Glass Garden in Seattle.  While we’ve lived in the area for years, we visited the garden for the first time last year.  Dale Chihuly definitely pulls no stops, and his work?  A breathtaking triumph.

  1. Great choice, even greater captures and I love the colors, the shapes…wow! I have watched several glass artisans, doing what seems like magic to me, and I know the effort and work it took to make these works of Art. Thanks for sharing!
