Seeing is Believing

I used to never to believe that the magnificient skies I saw in various magazines ever actually existed. I only saw what photoshop and the various enhancing programs can provide with the touch of a skilled hand. I work for a large commercial printer and we have people that can take a rhinocerous, remove him from the African plains, place him in a bright yellow raincoat and gollashes and plant him in the streets of downtown Mannhatten, NYC. Hey, don’t laugh…it happened…

But recently, I was driving through the dessert and as the sun began to set…this is what I witnessed in a constantly changing form. I look at it now and still can’t believe it…the absolute beauty nature can provide…if we open our eyes and see………..

Illume Images

For the next two weeks my hometown (Huntington Beach, California) will be showing an exhibit right down on the sandy beach next to the pier. Red Bull (the drink) had a “search for image quest” that covered over 90 countries and a panel of judges chose the 50 best images from 45 sports photographers involving snow, water, land and air featuring several athletes in action. Each photo has been super-sized and built into 50 glass and metal cubes, 8 feet by 8 feet, set into a circular exhibit and they are illuminated and shown only at night (thus the name Illume). They are surrounded by 4 foot wooden walkways so those that like their shoes “sand free” can remain so. It was a wonderful site to see from the parking lot alone, but up close you can hear the waves from the Pacific Ocean crashing in the background, listen to the interesting comments and be a part of a one of a kind art show… all for free… (see my blogroll for more details)
