Sightseeing

Mitch had a rare Sunday off and with the upper elevations getting tons of snow, we opted for a day at the Space Needle and the Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum. We thought that since it is the last weekend before Christmas, the new Star Wars Movie opening and the Seahawks playing at home the crowds, wouldn’t be too bad. It was cloudy and chilly but it wasn’t raining while we were at the top of the Space Needle. I was able to get some shots that I thought were pretty good.

I couldn’t believe the beauty of the glass sculptures, true works of art and oh so delicate. I’m here to tell you, I walked around from room to room, keeping a lot of distance between the glass pieces and me. Anyone that knows me knows just how graceful I am and walking among pieces of fragile glass valued at tens of thousands of dollars each, was a disaster just waiting to happen. I have a gift and I had no desire to be the lead off news story of the evening.

  1. Nice photos, every one. Personally, you couldn’t get me that high up at gunpoint; vertigo. Some of the photos even set it off, giving my inner ear a twist just seeing the tiny frigging boats…. But, they’re still good photos, even if I can’t look at them closely for long….

    LOL at myself….

    As to walking around in the glass display…. you wouldn’t happen to be a Taurus, would you? You know, bull in a china shop?….

    Sorry, couldn’t resist….

  2. Wow! That glass place is amazing! You did make me giggle, too – I’d nearly forgotten about your talent but since I share it, I know exactly how you stood, too! Arms and elbows in tight, if carrying a bag it was clenched to your side! Sloooooow turns with lots of looking first, too!
    My mom collected glass paperweights, she would have loved it there. Thank you!
