A Sea of Glass – The Chihuly Exhibit at the Bellagio in Vegas

I’ve always thought the Dale Chihuly glass sculptures are some of the coolest things in the world. I’d love to learn how to blow glass. It always looks dangerous and exotic. I remember when I got my HDTV a few years ago, one of the first shows I saw was when Chihuly was doing this exhibit in Venice. He spent some time in Murano, which is near Venice and a famous place for glass blowing. They made these amazing sculptures then hung them all over Venice. I wish I could have gone there to take photographs of the event!

In other news, I was interviewed yesterday by an extremely nice guy named Victor Cajiao who hosts a podcast called “Typical Shutterbug“. Click there and you can hear my interview. We talk a little about the upcoming book, HDR, do’s and don’t, and this sort of thing. If you enjoyed the show, leave him a comment there — I’m sure he’d appreciate it!

    awesome podcast – so descriptive – feel like even I could be an hdr photographer – hee hee!

  • Wow- fantastic. We’re lucky to have a Chihuly collection permanently housed here in Columbus at the Franklin Park Conservatory, but we don’t have anything like this installation- amazing capture- and just how did they mount all those things on the ceiling?

    We have an installation right here in Racine, too. Beautiful stuff.
    And great shot, btw. Quelle surprise.

  • Awesome glasswork!!!! Thanks for sharing a photo with us, Trey. And I listened to the podcast and added it to facebook. Went through the posts for today while listening. Have a wonderful Saturday, everyone. Going to our county fair, here. Should be fun, haven’t been in a while. I love looking at the animals!!!!!

    Thanks for taking my suggestion. I knew you would make the Chihuly ceiling even more spectacular!!!

    Looks like Fruity Pebbles.

  • Thanks!

    Tom – yeah – I always wonder about mounting it up there too– worry about them falling!

  • That is a very cool take n the Bellagio. We have been there and seen it but was not able to capture the scene as well as you have. Well done.
