    I would not agree re "lack of same". I always admire your photos, and many more members on this website do also. I am sure you and spouse were the inspiration for your son. If no one in the family had observed nature, he may have never taken a single photo.

    His photos are great and natural. Nowadays, people are trying to have everything in focus and the same amount of light throughout.

    Composition of a photo is key. Scale is too.

    I have a serious pet-peeve about photos taken at a 45* angle! WHY do that?!

    I <3 that garden display!

    I can only imagine the value! :D :p Maybe 1/2 of the red shoots would've been better for me.

    I remember seeing a TV show talking about a chandelier ( probably from the same artist) YEARS ago that brought the art world to attention. It had 300 of those curlicue spires all bunched up. Kind-of ugly but unique too.

    It was astronomically expensive too. Since then, I've seen that kind of glass work every now and again on other shows. Some talking about the art, other times it's just in the back ground and unmistakable a glass artists work. Or plastic replica/ style copy maybe. But the real deals are $$$$$. :p B)

    Tony your description reminds me of this one that I just saw at the Milwaukee art museum last month:

    "Electronic music is human sound adapting to indulge technology, and for some, it feels like the signature sound of energy. New and abstract sounds over hypnotic rhythms can conjure vast soundscapes for escape, pleasure, and transcendence."

    YUP. ;) Unmistakable aren't they. I've seen where he has pieces all around the world now.

    Probably the same artist.

    He might have a Co. of people helping him make those shapes. Maybe not.

    He does, he helps and directs them on what design he wants done.

    Here's some more.

    Wow! :p

    NICE sculptures!!!! I love that yellow glass bush and big globes.

    That overhead display is very nice too.

    Now I like these a lot except, again, too many blue spires for my taste. BUT the rest is cool! B)

    I was speaking from a purely artistic view of the skill it took to make those pieces of art. No filth even entered my mind looking at or complimenting their shape or image.

    But I think you forgot to put a smiley face at the end of your comment, or am I wrong and you're offended by my innocent comment that you took into a different realm?

    He's just got globe envy.

    B)

    This thread's recent art-related Kontrapunkt puts me to mind of that classic Blondie hit.
    Once I had a love, and it was a gas
    Soon turned out, had a bush of glass...

    speaking of big globes (that was an AC/DC song, wasn't it?) -- the Ledyard bridge, linking Norwich VT and Hanover NH, (arguably) has the biggest globes of them all.

    HAHAHAHA Damn, dude! No, I didn't forget the smiley face. Always leave 'em guessing. Although in this case, I didn't expect to trick anyone that easily. >:)

    I thought Eartha was the biggest globe at 41ft. Delorme Mapping in Yarmouth Maine now owned by Garmin. David Delorme sold it. I watched part of it being built when they moved to that new location off i95.. If you havent seen it-its worth looking it up.. My exwife & sister worked there for many of years
