Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

Space Needle


Piquant petals
Pierced through an ardent needle
Thrust into heavens

I love the dichotomy between these two wondrous expressions of art. The cold straight steel of the Seattle Space Needle in comparison to the fragile fluid glass of Chihuly. Both are magnificent landmarks in their own rights.

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path.

  7. Thank you. I wandered around a bit to get just the right angle. The Chihuly museum is magnificent.


  8. I’ve not been to Seattle, but I have seen Chihuly “in the wild” (at the Corning Museum of Glass and at the Daum Museum of Contemporary Art). Your photo is the perfect capture.

  9. Thank you Ken. His work is amazing. Hard to do justice. Just the sheer size of the pieces is hard to grasp.
