George Phile – Chihuly Collaboration

Photographer George Phile
Website www.gphile.com
Title Chihuly Collaboration (Ikebana and Float Boat)
Category Silver Color
Location Seatlle, WA
Reason For Making the Image I have admired the blown glass work of Dale Chihuly for a number of years now.  I was in San Francisco a few years ago when he had an exhibition and his work was absolutely fantastic.  He has a glass chandelier hung in a downtown hotel here in Houston which is stunning.  My wife and I decided to go on a cruise out of Seattle and that gave us the opportunity to go a few days ahead of time and see, among other things, the Chihuly Garden and Glass Exhibit.  This exhibit is a must see for anyone going to Seattle and this photograph is just one of a few dozen I took while at the exhibit.

JW Purdy – My Nude Year: Day 44

Title My Nude Year: Day 44 of 365
Category Color
Location Richmond, Tx
Reason For Making the Image This photo is a part of an ongoing series with my wife and muse in which we are taking a nude photo everyday for 2015. The inspiration for this photo was a French magazine cover I saw as a young boy around 5 or 6. The major difference between this image and the one I have committed to memory is I have replaced the red/orange colorization for green.
