The Works of Dale Chihuly The Atlantis Collection

ABOVE - A detail of "The Crystal Gate" installation in the Atlantis Resort, Nassau, The Bahamas. Dale Chihuly is a blown glass designer/sculptor whose works are considered unique to the field of blown glass, "moving it into the realm of large-scale sculpture". His works are legendary in the realm of art glass and he is considered a modern master through his mixing of traditional glass blowing techniques (learned in Venice Italy) and new techniques he’s developed to create works of mind-blowing intricacy and scale. Since a serious car accident in 1976 left him blinded in one eye and a body surfing accident in 1979 left him unable to hold the glass blowing pipe. He has since hired others to do the manual labor in bringing his designs to life. He calls himself “more of a choreographer than a dancer… more of a supervisor than a participant… more a director than an actor.” His large installations are on display in permanent collections all over the world, including in the United States, Canada, England, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, and Nassau, the Bahamas at the Atlantis Resort.
ABOVE - A detail of "The Crystal Gate" installation in the Atlantis Resort, Nassau, The Bahamas. The challenges in shooting such amazing works of art are many: SCALE - These massive installations are so large and complex that to capture the truly amazing detail and unique beauty of each you really need to shoot close-up images. The scale is then lost. But to shoot wide to establish each work in the environment they were places (designed for), you loose the finer details that make these works so awe inspiring. I knew when I was booked to shoot a corporate event in the Atlantis that the four large Chihuly installations were top of my list for my own "must shoot" items for the trip. I'd seen wide photo after wide photo and once on site and standing in amazement at their complexity and detail I decided to shoot long and tight - opting to not focus on scale so much as detail but knowing that certain angles would convey the size of their settings and therefore express their monumental size. LOCATION - These works of art are the show pieces of the busiest part of the resort, the casino. There isn't a time day or night that these works of art are not surrounded by people. Having the time to set up a shot and take it would be difficult. LOCATION - Because photography in the casino proper is not allowed, I was limited to the angles I could select. This meant going for my 300mm f/2.8 lens - large, heavy, and in need of some sort of support (i.e. tripod or monopod). It wasn't going to be possible to stop in a busy walkway and set up a tripod - so I decided to experiment with hand-held shots. LOCATION - Again, because of the location I couldn't increase shutter speed with the use of a speedlight. Flash photography was strictly prohibited inside the resort. The areas these installations occupied were dimly lit, which worked to the advantage of their display (since they are all internally lit), but with large lenses you have the hand-held rule of photography - if you don't want blur from the lens shaking you must shoot the second equivalent of the total focal length of the lens. Meaning I had to shoot at 1/350 second or higher to keep from having shake/blur in the images from holding that massive lens hand-held. I adjusted ISO to compensate and I used anything I could to steady my body/arms as I hoisted 12lbs of camera and lens up to get my shots.
ABOVE -At the main entrance of the Atlantis Casino, "The Crystal Gate" installation stands 18 feet tall. Made of individual crystal glass shafts (3,100 to be exact), it is an amazing work of beauty as well as being a feat of design and engineering. Weighing over 30,000 pounds, it simply is an astoundingly beautiful and complex sculpture. Chihuly Atlantis Exhibits – Dale Chihuly was commissioned by the owner and builder of The Atlantis to make four grand statement works for the casino. Each is insured for over a million US dollars, they are all uniquely individual yet collectively appropriate for the design and theme of the Atlantis's main casino.
The Crystal Gate - The Crystal Gate is a glittering tower of crystal soaring nearly 20 feet into the air at the entrance to the Atlantis Casino weighing 30,000 pounds and is made of 3,100 hand-blown crystals. It is the grand statement piece as you enter the casino – a marvel of crystal shapes and forms. It was by far my favorite piece, the pure scale and ambition of it spoke to me. I took dozens of photos of it and each angle reveals a new character and symmetry.
ABOVE - The Temple of the Moon rests atop a large elevated platform. It sits opposite the casino from The Temple of the Sun. Between the two in the center of the room, suspended from the ceiling, is the Seaform Chandelier. Temple of the Moon & The Temple of the Sun - The challenge was to bring beauty to paradise -- and the Sun and Moon. Chihuly was commissioned to make dazzling yet approachable sculpture for the new Atlantis Resort Hotel on Paradise Island in the Bahamas. SPECIAL NOTE - Having the ability to step OUTSIDE the casino and shoot a photo such as the one above is one of the many reasons why I will ALWAYS travel with a super-telephoto lens. Having a 300, 400, 500, or 600mm lens available makes shots like the one above a reality.
ABOVE - The Temple of the Moon – Each of the surface "plates" of the Temple of the Moon in itself is an amazing work of art. Cobalt blue mixes with silverish white and translucent blues to create a soothing and symmetrical opposite to the Temple of the Sun across the casino. “I knew I could create the sun very successfully, but the moon would have to somehow be blown and constructed in an entirely original way. I knew it would be difficult and force me to make something new.” ~ Dale Chihuly Beautifully rendered relief paintings of the twelve signs of the zodiac circle the Sun and Moon installations. BELOW - The dynamic and explosive colors and design of the Temple of the Sun are indeed a striking contrast to the relaxing and calming coolness of the Temple of the Moon.
Temple of the Sun – The Temple of the Sun is a giant ball of flame-like tentacles of yellow, orange, and red elements radiating from its globe. It resembles a fearsome underwater creature of beauty and mystery while at the same time it could also easily be said that it is a representation of the violence and danger that reaches out from the center of every star into space.
The Temple of the Sun has more than 2,300 yellow, orange, and red elements radiating from a fiery globe atop a replica of a Mayan temple.
AND THEN THERE WAS THE SEA - BELOW - In the center of the room, caught between the two extremes of the sun and moon rests the Seaform Chandelier.
The Seaform Chandelier – Featuring 900 unique hand blown elements depicting a wide assortment of ocean life in abstract form; this stunning 12ft diameter glass sculpture is located in the center of the Bacarat Lounge within sight of the two massive “Temple” sculptures. It features a number of instantly recognizable ocean shapes such starfish and then flows into shapes reminiscent of dolphins and other aquatic life. It is also an interesting "buffer" between the two extremes of the Temples. There are hints of gold and reds found in the Temple of the Sun, and cooler whites and bluish grey found in the Temple of the Moon.
BELOW - In and around the casino are numerous smaller Chihuly works known as Macchia Bowls.
Macchia Bowls - Derived from the Latin macula, the Italian word “macchia” connotes simply a stain or a spot, but it has a much richer range of meaning. Since the Renaissance, macchia has been associated with a sketchy way of applying the initial color to a drawing or painting. Particularly appropriate for the late style of the Venetian painter Titian, the word characterizes his emphasis on brushwork and summary treatment of form. In the seventeenth century, macchia designated the special quality of improvisational sketches that appear to be nature’s miraculous creation rather than mere human work. When Chihuly appropriates the term “Macchia” for his series, he gives back to the word some of its traditional meanings, particularly the emphasis on spontaneity, on artistic collaboration with technique rather than mere control of it.
There is an undeniable sense of continuity and purpose to the master works on display at the Atlantis. Each piece although completely unique in design, shape, and color, flows into the next as a collective series should. Each alone is breathtaking and awe inspiring; but together they are an experience.
The Atlantis is a destination without question, but the entire island of Nassau offers a unique treasure of culture and history that should not be missed if you ever have the chance to visit. For me, the chance to experience these beautiful installations in person and then be challenged in attempting to capture their beautify in photographs was one of the many highlights of my trip.

These are really incredible. I especially like how meticulously he incorporates colors. It seems that he keeps things pretty monochrome or chooses schemes that evoke a lot of kinetic energy. Thanks for the tag @ButterflyBlu! And @JonPatrickHyde lol now I want to go to Nassau.
@shannonl5 Of course! It sounds like one heck of a good time to me...
Beautiful. I've been to Nassau, but not to the Atlantis. I think I need to make a point to do that, for these alone! Brilliant pictures, sir. @danidee, check this out.
@ButterflyBlu take me with you!!!!!!
@danidee LET'S GO!!

Difference between Shop Drawings and As Built Drawings
Execution of project cannot start unless the blueprints of the structure or building are in place. The designing stage of any construction project holds immense importance as it lays the foundation for effective project execution. Throughout the construction process there are various construction drawings prepared, each of them serves different purpose and possess their own unique features. These design drawings provide a glimpse of the actual state of construction process during various stages of project lifecycle. Shop Drawings and As Built Drawings are crucial in construction process and are created to accomplish different goals. In this article, we will understand both of these drawings and how are they different from each other. Shop Drawings Shop Drawings, also known as fabrication drawings are detailed representation of design intent. These drawings are generally utilized by fabricators, contractors, manufacturers, suppliers etc. in regards to manufacturing, assembling, and installation of pre-fabricated components of a building or structure. A few examples of the same are; Elevators, windows, trusses, MEP components such as HVAC ducts, plumbing pipes etc. The style of these drawings is very different from architect’s drawing as these are extremely detailed, having instructions/notations for installation, dimensions and materials needed. Shop Drawings usually include the following information: · Dimensions · Applicable fabrication standards · Details needed for erection and installation · Plans, elevations, views, sections, and information required for installation of pre-fabricated elements Shop Drawings are essential because of the following reasons: · Structural shop drawings provide essential information to fabricator in great detail to make sure that all the components used in fabrication are sound structurally. It also ensures that there is no compromise made with safety & standards are adhered to. · MEP Shop Drawing Services can be used to create MEP drawings which provide information regarding HVAC, electrical, plumbing and fire-protection components of a building. This is used not just for fabrication, installation and assembly but can also aid facility managers for carrying out quick repairs by pinpointing the location of a faulty component. · It brings down fabrication rework considerably by providing accurate and detailed information pertaining to the kind of materials to be used, the dimensions etc. about fabricated components and early detection of clashes. · Helps in clear communication between architect, designer, client and fabricator. · Essential in expediting the timeline of construction by ensuring seamless flow of fabrication process. As Built Drawings: As built drawings also known as Record Drawings or Red Line Drawings are revised versions/sets of drawings created after the completion of construction project. These drawings are prepared by contractors & subcontractors to compare the final completed version of the structure or the building with that of what was originally planned. Thus, these drawings provide a final blueprint of finished structure and the area surrounding it. During any construction project there are various times when deviations are to be made from what was planned initially. As Built Services can also be used to keep a track of the changes made throughout the project lifecycle and records them to reflect the actual construction with exact dimensions, location and geometry of the built structure or building. As built drawings generally include the following information: · Modifications in designs · Alterations done in shop drawings · Geometry, dimensions, area etc. · Deviations from initial designs Importance of As Built Drawings · It reflects the actual constructed state of the building and not just the conceived idea. · Time and cost saving, as no resources are wasted in the maintenance and operation processes to locate, recognize, installation and maintenance, as all the information is reflected in documented history of building. · It provides room for safety as the detailed plans show the areas where safety parameters may be needed, and how can they be installed. · They are helpful during renovation or refurbishment of the building as it contains the history of building and all the primary and essential information which can expedite the process. Conclusion: During any construction process, accuracy is essential in order to prevent errors, and wastage of resources, such as time, money and manpower. Even though Shop Drawings and As Built Drawings are different from one another, both of them require the same level of precision in order to ensure a smooth on-site construction process.

Ai nên là người quản lý chi tiêu trong gia đình?
Nói đến việc quản lý tài chính trong gia đình, phụ nữ chẳng hiểu nổi vì sao đàn ông lại có thể chi tiền triệu cho một bữa nhậu. Trong khi đó đàn ông cũng cảm thấy vô lý khi vợ mình mua chiếc túi xách hết cả nửa tháng lương. Tiền bạc đôi lúc là vấn đề chính gây ra xung đột giữa vợ chồng nếu cả hai không có sự thống nhất và trao đổi thẳng thắn với nhau về tiền. Vậy vợ chồng nên quản lý thu chi thế nào để không gặp trục trặc trong hôn nhân? Câu trả lời sẽ có trong bài viết dưới đây. Tiến sĩ Giáo dục Nguyễn Phương Chi, tác giả của Blog nổi tiếng “The Present Writer” đã chia sẻ 3 cách quản lý thu nhập phổ biến trong gia đình. Mỗi phương pháp đều có những ưu nhược điểm riêng. Vì vậy bạn cần cân nhắc kỹ khi áp dụng cho gia đình mình. Nếu có thể, hãy thử nghiệm cả 3 phương pháp này trong ít nhất một tháng để biết được phương pháp nào phù hợp với mình nhất. Kiểu 1: Chỉ vợ hoặc chồng giữ tiền Có thể thấy, đây là kiểu quản lý tiền bạc phổ biến nhất trong mỗi gia đình Việt. Vợ hoặc chồng sẽ là người nắm giữ toàn bộ thu nhập và phụ trách chi tiêu cho cả gia đình. Hầu hết trong mỗi gia đình Việt vợ là người quán xuyến hết tiền bạc. Ưu điểm Thu nhập được kiểm soát tập trung, chặt chẽ và dễ dàng quản lý. Nhược điểm Áp lực trong mọi quyết định tài chính sẽ đè nặng lên một người, người còn lại dễ trở nên bàng quan và thiếu sự đồng cảm nếu đôi bên không thường xuyên chia sẻ. Giải pháp:  Trong gia đình, ai cũng muốn mình là người có quyền đưa ra quyết định tài chính. Tuy nhiên, chuyện quản lý tiền bạc lại là vấn đề chung. Bất kỳ quyết định nào liên quan đến tiền bạc đều nên có sự đồng thuận của cả hai để xây dựng sự tin tưởng ở nhau. Ngoài ra, tiền nên được giao cho người có khả năng quản lý tài chính tốt hơn chứ không nhất phải là người vợ hoặc người kiếm được nhiều hơn giữ tiền. Người cầm tiền cũng phải là người biết sắp xếp thu chi rõ ràng và minh bạch, luôn có sự thỏa hiệp trong mọi quyết định tài chính của gia đình. Kiểu 2: Tiền của ai người nấy giữ Đây là kiểu mỗi người sẽ tự quản lý thu nhập của mình, chỉ đóng góp một phần vào chi tiêu chung của gia đình như tiền sinh hoạt, ăn uống, học phí cho con cái,... Tiền của ai người nấy giữ và chỉ đóng góp cho khoản chung của gia đình. Ưu điểm Đôi bên sẽ có được sự tự do tuyệt đối với đồng lương của mình sau khi đã đóng góp một khoản cho gia đình. Mọi thứ đều được phân chia rạch ròi, tránh va chạm lẫn nhau. Nhược điểm Thiếu cái nhìn tổng quát về tình hình hình tài chính chung của cả gia đình: Người này có thể không biết người kia kiếm được bao nhiêu tiền và chi tiêu vào những gì? Khi gia đình có những mục tiêu tài chính lớn như mua nhà, mua xe, đầu tư hay tiết kiệm thì sẽ rất khó để thống nhất và thực hiện hiệu quả. Thiếu công bằng nếu một trong hai người không có nguồn thu nhập ngang nhau. Đôi khi sẽ gây ra áp lực hoặc bức bối cho người còn lại khi không đủ tiềm lực tài chính để đáp ứng cho các khoản chi tiêu chung của gia đình. Giải pháp: Trong hôn nhân không nên có bí mật tài chính giữa hai người. Do đó, cả hai vợ chồng nên công khai thu nhập và phân chia tỷ lệ đóng góp cho gia đình theo mức thu nhập của mỗi người. Chẳng hạn nếu người chồng có thu nhập cao hơn, chi tiêu nhiều hơn thì có thể đóng góp 60% lương tháng cho quỹ chung thay vì chia 50-50 như thông thường. Đồng thời, rạch ròi trong tài chính là tốt nhưng vẫn cần có sự trao đổi thường xuyên giữa vợ chồng để gắn kết và thực hiện mục tiêu tài chính chung hiệu quả. Kiểu 3: Hai túi tiền thông nhau Vợ chồng sẽ hợp nhất thu nhập của mình lại và cùng nhau quản lý chi tiêu đồng đều. Thu nhập sẽ được phân chia cho các khoản cố định hàng tháng, khoản tiết kiệm, đầu tư và có cả khoản tiền tiêu riêng của mỗi người. Để dễ dàng theo dõi, vợ chồng nên có một tài khoản ngân hàng chung, khi một người rút tiền để chi tiêu cho việc nào đó, người còn lại cũng sẽ theo dõi được. Cùng chia sẻ và quản lý tài chính trong gia đình sẽ giúp cả hai gắn kết hơn. Ưu điểm Mọi thứ đều rõ ràng và minh bạch. Vợ chồng có tiếng nói chung, phấn đấu vì mục đích chung nhưng vẫn có sự tự do nhất định. Nhược điểm Chi tiêu không tập trung nên khó quản lý và đôi khi tạo ra sự bất đồng nếu cả hai không thường xuyên trao đổi và có kế hoạch tài chính chung rõ ràng. Giải pháp: Trang bị kỹ năng quản lý tài chính cá nhân và dựa vào điểm mạnh của đối phương để đưa ra những quyết định tốt nhất. Cần có sự thống nhất trong kế hoạch phân bổ thu chi cho gia đình. Nếu nhận thấy cả hai có một vài điểm bất đồng ý kiến, hãy trình bày rõ ràng về quan điểm của mình để cùng nhau tìm ra cách giải quyết phù hợp. Sau cùng, dành cho những cặp vợ chồng hay chi tiêu qua thẻ chung, bạn cần sử dụng thêm app quản lý chi tiêu để dễ dàng theo dõi và kiểm soát nguồn tiền. Hiện nay, một số ứng dụng đã cho liên kết với tài khoản ngân hàng có thể kể đến như Misa, Money Lover, Mint, YNAB,... Tựu chung, không quan trọng ai là người giữ tiền, quan trọng là vợ chồng bạn chọn được cách quản lý thu chi phù hợp với hoàn cảnh gia đình mình. Điều quan trọng để tài chính gia đình luôn ổn định và bền vững đó là đôi bên cùng tin tưởng và chia sẻ với nhau. Đồng thời phải luôn trau dồi những kỹ năng quản lý tài chính cần có để nâng cao chất lượng cuộc sống gia đình mình.

El paradisiaco Cancún
Es el principal destino turístico de México, eclipsando con creces el papel que alguna vez desempeñó Acapulco como la principal nación vacacional de América del Norte. Si las imágenes de playas de arena blanca, aguas cristalinas, motos acuáticas, buceo y descansar junto a la piscina no son lo suficientemente atractivas, agregue a esa imagen clubes nocturnos sensacionales con espectáculos más grandes que la vida y una plétora de antiguas ruinas mayas y tendrá una idea de lo que es la experiencia de Cancún. Cancún, que se adentra en el mar Caribe, se encuentra en la punta de la península de Yucatán, en una tierra que se usaba comúnmente como refugio para los piratas marinos. La ciudad turística se construyó a mediados de la década de 1970 muy cerca y, en algunos casos, encima de las preciadas ruinas mayas. La atracción principal es una serie de hermosos hoteles Art Deco y de gran altura seguidos de una serie de clubes nocturnos que van desde exclusivamente elegantes o industriales de fantasía hasta discotecas más cálidas e íntimas con su propio sabor local maravilloso. El servicio regular de taxis las 24 horas desde y hacia cualquier lugar de la ciudad hace que elegir su alojamiento sea casi tan simple como reservar su vuelo en cualquier lugar. Aunque la sola mención de Cancún evoca pensamientos de fiestas extravagantes y juergas de vacaciones de primavera, asegúrese de tomarlo con calma para que pueda disfrutar de un viaje de un día a las ruinas mayas de los alrededores con una mente clara y una actitud de agradecimiento. Las ruinas más famosas están en Chichén Itzá en el centro de la península. Habitadas desde el 445 a. C. hasta el 1204 d. C., luego misteriosamente abandonadas, estas ruinas se centran alrededor de una pirámide con escalones que culminan en cabezas de serpientes gigantes. Visite durante cualquiera de los equinoccios y las sombras aparecerán como si una serpiente gigante descendiera de la pirámide. Más cerca de Cancún, Tulum también es un popular destino maya con vistas a las aguas turquesas del Caribe. El Templo de los Frescos tiene un interior pintado ornamentalmente y el Templo del Dios Descendente está adornado con tallas en bajorrelieve notablemente intrincadas. Hay al menos otros diez sitios arqueológicos importantes accesibles desde Cancún por parte de los operadores turísticos, y que podrá incluir en sus paquetes vacacionales a Cancún. Si la playa, los deportes acuáticos y el paraíso en general lo ponen un poco inquieto, hay más que suficientes excursiones en Cancún para participar una vez que se encuentre en las playas de arena blanca de Cancún. Diariamente, guías experimentados llevan a los excursionistas entusiastas a la jungla para descubrir dónde viven las cosas salvajes. Además, los paseos a caballo están disponibles a lo largo de la costa y hacia el continente. A un corto viaje en ferry o avión se encuentra Cozumel, la isla caribeña más grande de México y uno de los mejores lugares del mundo para el buceo, sin mencionar que puedes encontrar algunas empresas privadas que ofrecen nadar con delfines. Si lo que buscas es un verdadero escape, Isla de Mujeres es tu respuesta. A quince minutos de Cancún en bote, este pequeño asilo tropical es un retiro pacífico de la vida turística en el continente. El ciclismo es muy popular en la isla, así como el snorquel y charlar con el pirata ocasional que pasa. Echa un vistazo a las misteriosas estatuillas de piedra de mujeres semidesnudas que dejaron los mayas. Cancún es claramente una opción número uno fácil para cualquier vacación en la playa. ¡Las familias, los solteros, las parejas y los adolescentes deben sentirse cómodos y como en casa en esta tierra de ensueño de la peninsula de Yucatán que México ha convertido en un entorno libre de preocupaciones que lo abarca todo, con todo incluido y con los deseos de los vacacionistas al alcance de su mano! No busque más la escapada perfecta, porque la ha encontrado cuando viaja a Cancún.
Wedding Venues Should Be Chosen With Care
A wedding is an occasion that needs much planning and preparation. There are quite a few things that make weddings a memorable and pleasant experience for the bride and groom as well as guests. You should select your wedding venue with great care to make it a grant event. The size of the wedding hall should accommodate all guests comfortably, at the same time too large a hall is not necessary. You can select a hall with 20 to 25 extra seats, but not more as too many empty seats tend to send a negative impression that many guests have absented from the wedding. This is a bad feeling for the guests. The venue of the wedding should have space for all the activities you plan to set up, be it a band, dance stage, or standing feast. If there is no suitable arrangement to contain the guests, the place will be stuffed and unpleasant. No one wishes to stay in an overcrowded wedding hall. Hence, space should be allotted for every planned activity at the wedding hall. Ensure the arrangements are done in an appropriate way by visiting the place the previous day of the event. Wedding costs can rise to unanticipated heights if you are not cautious. Hidden costs and expenses are the main reason for these surprising or shocking extra expenses. Get a clear picture of the catering expenses, rent for furniture, rents for cutlery and crockery, charges for food and drink, stage decoration charges, DJ charges if there is one, and charges for the staff service. It is when miscellaneous charges are added to regular bills, that the expenses turn atrocious. Understand the expenses of all services and calculate the chances of getting an increase in the bill. Visit the wedding venue two weeks before the occasion to ensure it is in top condition. Flaws should be repaired and taken care of by contacting the respected persons. An unkempt wedding venue kills all the charm of a wedding. Note the time needed to reach the wedding venue from your home so that you can start on time and reach the place on time on a great day. There are many wedding halls in Jaipur available in different sizes and costs. If you think the venue you chose is too expensive there is no need to stick to it. Find another place that is less expensive, but has the necessary facilities. Ensure the hall is booked on time so that you do not miss the chance to get a good venue for someone else.
