Orange was everywhere that day
On a visit to Meijer Gardens, during which I photographed an exhibition of Chihuly art glass, the permanent collection of outdoor sculpture, pieces from an Alexander Calder exhibition, and fall foliage, I managed to capture quite a few images that featured the color orange. I decided to pull some of them together in a color-themed montage, and surprised myself when none of the foliage shots made the final cut.
Moving clockwise from the left panel are (1) Chihuly fiori, (2) koi in the catch pool for the sculpture garden waterfalls, (3) a detail of the monumental scale Alexander Liberman sculpture 'Aria', (4) a reflection of 'Aria' in a small pool along the outflow stream from the waterfall pools.
The background layer, which acts as a border, is a heavily filtered version of a closeup of one of the orange Chihuly vessels in the Conservatory portion of his exhibition. For those of you who use filter forge, I used the 'Abstract poster smudge with outlines' filter.
The photos were all taken on October 29, 2010, and edited or re-edited June 17, 2019
