Outdoor Wednesday - Marbles?
My son has a decent size collection of marbles including some that he inherited from his grandpa H. When we saw these ones I let him take the photographs (we have more).
Now if you have visited any of my blogs over the past few months you have to know that these "marbles" are not quite what they seem. They are in fact part of a series of Dale Chihuly exhibits that just wrapped up in Nashville. This section was in the Japanese Garden at Cheekwood.
My favorite marble is the orange & green one closely followed by the blue discs.
All the marbles on the gravel had the echoing circles raked into the gravel below them. it was interesting to see. Darling son had to do some contortions in bushes to get the above shot of the blue one :)
If you want to see more Niijima floats and learn more about Chihuly's work visit http://www.chihuly.com/ I also recommend looking in google photographs for some amazing views of his installations.
