Our Beautiful World - Blue

Our Beautiful World's word prompt this week is Blue.  I immediately thought of these photos of the Chihuly blown glass exhibit in the Desert Botanical Garden here in Phoenix.  These photos are nearly 2 years old now, but they still incite a sense of wonder to me.  The color changes as the sun sets and the exhibit is lit by flood lamps.

Of course, we have such beautiful blue skies that it is also fun to watch the color of the sky change as the day moves from morning to afternoon to dusk and ultimately to night in these photos.

Near the entrance is this mesmerizing sculpture in blue.  There is so much of interest to see in this sculpture that you could not stop watching for a long time.  Again,l the series of photos from morning to afternoon to dusk is represented here.

But I couldn't miss an opportunity to show the blue that makes my heart proud.  This past year, my son Timothy in his cap and gown graduating from Chandler High School, home of the Wolves, whose colors are blue and white.

This is my take on blue.  What does the word prompt inspire in you?  Come join the fun over at Our Beautiful World.


  1. Congratulations for your son! You struck a sensitive chord here as I LOVE Chihully and the only time I had the chance to see one of his works of art close was in 2014 when I travelled to the U.S.A. and visited a casino in Connecticut There was a huge one there!Thanks for sharing this in Our Beautiful World.
