Chihuly show at de Young Museum
As you can see by these pictures, I went to see the Dale Chihuly show at the de Young Museum this weekend. It was crowded but not unbearable, and the lighting is very dramatic. No flash allowed but it wouldn't have helped--the glass needed to be backlit to show off its colors, and that just isn't how great pictures happen. But here are a few shots. The saffron tower is outside the museum where anyone can see it, you don't need to pay admission for that. As a member, I was able to just walk in without standing in a long line and got a "timed admission" ticket to the Chihuly exhibit right away, even though it was a busy Saturday.
