PhotoHunt Theme: Twist(ed)

The theme this week is "twist(ed)"
and a chain link fence is certainly twisted wire!
I also visited our Botanical Garden in October of 2006 when they were holding an exhibition of the glass art of Dale Chihuly all around the Garden. It's very clever how the Dale Chihuly glass is "twisted". The yellow glass was put up on both sides of the Rose Garden. Inside the Ridgeway Center was hanging a huge blue chandelier. In fact, the Garden did get to keep the chandelier through donations. Most of the other outside pieces moved on to other places. Here is the top. This is the center. This is the bottom half of the chandelier.
You can see how small the people in the left corner look compared to
how huge this chandelier actually is!

Incredible glass-work! That chandelier is huge - it must weigh a lot. Great photos.

I am so glad I scrolled down. I saw a little of this on another post a few weeks ago. Thanks for showing more of the twisted glass. IT is so cool.
