What made this such an intriguing adventure was experiencing it with the Chihuly exhibit. The mix of these two, during the height of desert blooming, was as magical as Alice's Adventures through the Looking Glass.
I took many pictures. SO MANY. My friend wondered that I couldn't actually enJOY the adventure with my camera so busy, yet there was NOTHING I missed.
Oftentimes I think that my camera highlights experiences. It captures something unnameable yet essential.
And the best part?! Here I am, 3 and a half years later digging into them once more. Seeing things I did NOT see then. If only BEcause Now I know how to digitally fiddle with my photographs...
For Artist's Play Room #29, Jenn has given us the theme BOTANICAL to interpret any way our little hearts desire. So... I went through my photos and chose around 18 I wanted to play with, brought them into Picasa and cropped them and turned them into a collage, also made in Picasa. I see this is as a work-in-progress, and I am very excitedly looking forward to playing individually with these photos.
Thanks, Jenn!! I'd all but forgotten about this stash!!!
