I caught this image at the Virginia Museum of Fine Art, quite unexpectedly. I was photographing the Blue Ridge Chandelier, on the right side of the image, when the girl moved to look out an enormous window off the left side of the photograph. I was immediately drawn to the spaciousness of this image.
These boats are filled with Chihuly glass work and displayed on a mirrored surface. The effect was a dazzling display of color reflected as if the boats were floating in still water.
This bundle of neon lights was part of the Chihuly exhibit at the Virginia Museum of Fine Art (VMFA) in 2012.
The Blue Ridge Chandelier was one of the Chihuly works on display at the Virginia Museum of Fine Art (VMFA) in the fall of 2012. This photo gives some perspective of the size of the chandelier, which is 18 feet tall.
