dominique - i had NO IDEA that this was here! we'll have to head there next time we're in town. gorgeous photos!!


What beautiful photos! Thanks for the reminder to pay attention to the details.

Jessie-We literally stumbled onto the place ourselves! I loved the glass, and I especially loved the stories behind the windows as well.

Word-I loved the close ups and decided to use them as a Photo Friday feature in tandem with my Thursday story about the museum. The darkened rooms and back-lit glass showed the windows off so nicely, although those conditions made it a little tougher to get good shots with our hand-held cameras. Thank goodness for the ability to shoot many shots with digital...so I was pretty assured of getting at least a few I could use :)


so pretty. i was wondering how you got these pictures indoors like that, you got a steady hand for sure.

Carolina-Shooting plenty of photos is part of the key to getting a few good shots :)
A steady hand helps, a stabilization feature on your lens can help, holding your breath as you take a shot can help (minimizing even the movement created by breathing!)...
