The stunning glassworks of Dale Cthulu.
Before taking a tasteless up-skirt shot of the Space Needle, I spent a damp afternoon wandering wide-eyed through the Dale Chihuly Garden and Glass.
What was remarkable to me, though, was that you could purchase a Chihuly sculpture for as low as a few hundred dollars in the gift shop.
I do not have that kind of money. But it all seemed so tantalizingly attainable. In that moment, I desperately wanted a colorful memento to take his stunning work with me.
So I bought a $7 kaleidoscope that now lives in my glovebox.
