Weekly Photo Challenge: Through …… Odysseo

 

Yesterday I had the great fortune of seeing the dreamy, magical and brilliant show, Odysseo, playing in Miami.  It was an amazing experience.  We were front and center – close enough to smell the horses and see the sweat glistening from their beatifically coiffed coats.

I didn’t have time before the show to focus on this weeks’ photo challenge, which asks us to capture an image that says”through,” but I think the glow of the lights and the complicated structure beneath the bleacher seats works pretty well for my interpretation of “through.”

I had my camera with me and as we entered the Odysseo big top to see the show, it was impossible not to notice the massive scaffold-like structures underneath the enormous bleacher seats.  The purple glow that washed through the bleacher support beams, came from the stage lighting.  I love the wild effect the purple lighting made through the bleachers.

Below are a few of photos of the underside of the bleachers.  The photos with a TV screen, were hanging on the outside frame of the bleachers and showed some of the dramatic moments from the show.

Below is a you tube video that I think you’ll enjoy.  There are a lot of YouTube videos of this remarkable show.  Follow this video to more YouTube links about the show.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast

This week the photo challenge is to find something that represents “contrast.”    I’ve chosen a photo of this fellow contrasted against the blue of the sky and the screen netting – which is keeping him inside the butterfly garden at Butterfly World, in Coconut Creek, Florida.

The butterflies in these gardens have lovely surroundings and lots of flowers and fruit to enjoy.  Seeing this picture, which I captured almost two years ago, again makes me wonder… Is this particular butterfly maybe dreaming of using his large wings to explore a bigger landscape?

Could be.

It’s never good to rob any creature of its freedom…..

Afterward:  But then again…  I wouldn’t have had the pleasure of this moment if it weren’t for Butterfly World keeping him in…. that’s my dilemma…
