JM! As Usual! A breath-taking Photo! Just staring at it for like 10 seconds truly made my day! Just look at the intricate castings on the ceiling! Wow!

It has been quite a while since I went back here at Travelling and I miss it so much! So Happy to be here! By the way, I realize we have the same layout! I really love it :)

That ceiling is stunning, I have never been there, I am not over fond of London! (or any big town for that matter) Diane

That Chihuly certaintly does amazing stuff.
The Pilchuck Glass school he started back in the 70s is just down the road from where I live. Interesting and unusual place. MB

This one caught my eye right away! I have seen these hanging glass sculptures and just adore them. But never in such surroundings! The old and new compliment each other beautifully! Excellent composition too. Love it!

It looks so out of place, but now I see why. Both are lovely, but together? (It's a museum, so what can you do? I'm so sorry I missed the V&A in London in February, and glad to see your photo. There is just SO much to do there and we had so little time.
