Daily Photo: Another Chihuly Masterpiece

Isn't there some point when you can just stop saying "masterpiece"? I mean, isn't everything he does considered a masterpiece? It's like there should be a whole new elite lexicon - special words for descriptions, all of which mean "masterpiece" or better.


This gem is at his new gallery in Las Vegas. You just have to go see that place. The people inside were very nice and let me take my time to set up and properly get the light as it truly was. I'm not sure they could figure out what the heck I was doing with my camera and the process! But that's okay. We kept up good conversation while I was going through my motions... and most of our conversation centered around how much we admire Dale!
