During my trip to Pittsburgh a couple weeks ago, I visited the Phipps Conservatory, which is one of the better botanical gardens in the U.S. (or so I read). It was a lovely, if humid, way to pass two hours. There was certainly no shortage of photographic material, especially because of the temporary exhibit of Chihuly glass sculptures scattered throughout the vegetation. They really gave a focal point for the photos, and provided delightful bursts of color. I present for you here a couple of my favorite shots. More will be on Flickr soon.
