The Museum of Glass by UrbanRural-Photo The Museum of Glass by UrbanRural-Photo
Bridge of Glass

The bridge takes pedestrians through a tunnel of brilliant light and color created by Chihuly’s glass forms.

A partnership between the Museum of Glass, legendary Studio Glass pioneer Dale Chihuly and the city of Tacoma resulted in the Chihuly Bridge of Glass, a 500-foot-long pedestrian overpass links the Museum to downtown Tacoma and its developing cultural corridor. Austin-based Arthur Andersson, architect of the Washington State History Museum, designed the bridge in close collaboration with Chihuly, who directed the artistic concept. The bridge provides a means for the internationally renowned Chihuly to contribute in a very public way to his hometown.

I do understand what you mean. Still you have to know a little bit about what you are doing to pull it off. I took a look at you photo and and I feel that it is just as good as mine if not better. I just happen to be there with my mentor that day and did not get the shot I wanted but I am going back this spring/summer either at night or sunset.
