Museum .:Handheld HDR:.

To be honest, most museums bore me. But the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston simply amazed me. My favorite exhibit, by far, was the Chihuly exhibit. Dale Chihuly is an American glass sculptor, and you can see one of his pieces in the photo above called the lime green icicle tower. More Chihuly to come…
