Dale Chihuly at Seattle Center

We just returned from a few days in Seattle. A pleasant surprise was the discovery that the glass artist Dale Chihuly now has a spectacular
Garden and Glass installation
at the Seattle Center. It's right in front as you get off the monorail, and nicely sited under the Space Needle. For the next few days, I'll be posting pictures from this encounter with a favorite artist's work in a unique environment.

Alleyway in Black and White

Yesterday's photos converted to black and white: more austere and dramatic, but lacking the warm textures. Works both ways, I think, but with quite different impacts.

Mushrooms

In Jay Cooke State Park. I was struck by how monochromatic the mushrooms were, so I took a second photo--from a slightly different viewpoint--in black and white. They both work, I think.
