If you follow this blog you know that we visit The Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh frequently. Normally we visit in the fall and winter months so I had never noticed the waterfall before. It is on the outside deck and I am sure it is only operational in the late spring and summer months.
The current Summer garden at the Phipps has a number of places with they have used sculptures of human heads in the exhibit. Last week I published Garden Faces that show some botany sculptures.
These sculptures are part of an integrated exhibit utilizing buttons, musical tones and water jets. It is very creative and lots of fun.
If you are a regular at The Phipps Conservatory you are familiar that for the last few years The Tropical Room has been dedicated to The Congo. Newly redone, the room now focuses on Cuba.
There are features on Cuban food. medicine and of course plants native to the island nation. I was also appreciative of another focus of the island. It has a fascination with old American cars represented by this beauty.
Earlier this week I published Face of Chicago-1 and felt I had a few other shots to share from my recent visit to the Windy City. I will have to go through the archives because I am sure I have enough from previous trips to create a short photo essay. So here are a few more from the most recent trip, none are for sale but you can see others and buy apparel and prints on my commercial site.
