Went to Desert Botanical Garden this morning with brother David Crook and friend from Bellingham, Ev Bell. We wanted her to see the Chihuly exhibit. This time, I just took my telephoto lens. I loved seeing his artwork through my camera. It is exceptional. Here are a few shots of my visit.
These photographs are stunning; absolutely beautiful. I am a bit ashamed to say that I’m a native of Arizona and have never been to the DBG. I live out in the middle of the desert and just “assumed” that I wouldn’t be seeing anything new. These photos have changed my mind. 🙂
Thank you, also, for stopping by my blog. Advocacy became a hobby of mine after my two children were diagnosed as being on the spectrum.
Melissa, how nice to hear that you might visit DBG! It is truly a soulful experience, and was even before the magnificent Chihuly exhibit. How much love and care have gone into its creation and upkeep. You can see and feel it everywhere.
And I’m thrilled that you’re an advocate for the disabled. I will make a point of reading your blog regularly. I’m on the board for Arizona Center for Disability Law, and we take advocacy seriously as well. In fact, I built a social networking site for the center at http://acdlaw.ning.com so we could get the word out on what was happening. Or not.
