Chihuly Glass walkthrough

Dale Chihuly Exhibit at Seattle Center

Large pot inspired by Native American art work

Design patterns inspired by…

…Native American fabric patterns

Mille Fiori … “a thousand flowers”

from Finland

After dislocating his shoulder and losing an eye, he drew designs for inspiration and guidance to his production team.

One of several pieces to help capture 300 colors of the spectrum.

All photos captured with Nokia 920

Using Instagram on a Windows Phone

Pumpkin patch in Snoqualmie River Valley just outside Fall City


I just signed up with Instagram on my Windows Phone, using 6Tag, which allows new account creation, upload directly from a new picture or one already in your library, as well as browsing and tagging other photos. 6Tag has a robust set of filters, and getting robust investment from the developer. Good stuff.

So now let’s make sense of my photography publishing…

  • Instagram is for sharing snapshots from my phone while on the go
  • SmugMug is for sharing more developed photos as well as distributing hi-rez originals
  • Pinterest is for aggregating pictures of things I like
  • Facebook is used by other people in my life who tag me. I rarely use it to publish, too restrictive.
  • Skydrive is used to share photos with a selected group of people, such as a team at work, family members, and some friends.

Too many options.


Wrapping up

The road meanders through more landscape recovering from forest fires

Finally dropping down onto hardtop, where we zip into Nighthawk…

…the US side of the border crossing.

That night was spent in the municipal park at Grand Forks in Canada.

Let me also add…Route 3 east out of Osoyoos is a wonderful road, I didn’t grab any stills, Mike might have grabbed some video. Highly recommended.

Eventually landing in Glacier National Park, where I’ll wrap up this segment of the report with a “I was here” shot, taken in the highly competitive photo op zone.
