Botanical Garden, Bronx, August 2006

Rob and I went to see the Dale Chihuly exhibit at the New York Botanical Garden on Saturday. Chihuly, a glass blower, produces wild sculptures that certainly seem botanically inspired. The one above, called "Sun," is erected over an outdoor fountain. Below, floats are scattered in the garden's lily ponds and tremendous sculptures are suspended in the greenhouses.

I like the way the glass creations relate to the gardens. The ones above, for example, look like barrel cacti growing amid other desert plants.

All in all, it's a great show. Certainly lots of fodder for photographers!
