I start with a quote about photography!!
"You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
          ― Ansel Adams


Saturday February 13, 2016_We, we being David, Lauren, and I, went to the San Jose Museum of Art's Lunar New Year's celebration_Walking in the door looking up.

AND then being up looking down at the door through the three Chihuly sculptures.

At a plaza nearby, there were dragon dancers with musicians. Happily,quite a sizable crowd gathered to watch.

When I looked down, I found a winking dragon.

When I looked out, I found the musicians.

We ended a lovely day at The Spaghetti Factory. It seems like we always end at The Spaghetti Factory. There are, in fact, many many other restaurants in downtown but you'd hardly know by our, or should I say, David's, choices.

I love Chihuli's art! Nice pics! You had a great outing!

I agree! Both with your love Chihuly's work AND that we had a great outing :)

Glad you liked the quote and you are very welcome!

Oh, I love Chihuly sculptures. One of my ambitions is to own my very own, very small Chihuly. It would be perfect in my foyer.

Love the dragon dancers, too. We didn't get up to Chinatown for Chinese New Year again although I don't remember the weather being particularly awful this year.

I'm playing catch up on LJ. For several months I was here only sporadically and in short bursts. I'd have something I wanted to post, and then I'd disappear. I hope to have more staying power now. FanSee

I hope one day your dream to own a Chihuly is made real. Every time I walk into this museum all I imagine is a what those three gi-normous hanging lobby sculptures would do during a major earthquake. I don't linger long in the lobby and also undoubtedly the real reason why I don't have a Chihuly in my foyer. Well, beyond the fact that I don't have a foyer. Or the money.

Let's hear it for stying power! I think you've got it :)
