This artwork is part of an exhibit at the National Art Museum of China. It’s from the Thingworld Exhibit, full of modern art that I found bizarre and somewhat soul-less. Artists were to use new media. Here green plastic ribbons pass through a machine and the ribbons change shape. Ho hum.
Ailsa of Where’s My Backpack chose gardens as this week’s theme. I’m sharing photos taken in the Garfield Park Conservatory in Chicago. It’s a wonderful place to breathe in the fresh green garden smell in the dead of winter.
New to The Daily Post? Whether you’re a beginner or a professional, you’re invited to get involved in our Weekly Photo Challenge to help you meet your blogging goals and give you another way to take part in Post a Day / Post a Week. Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.
Here’s how it works:
1. Each week, we’ll provide a theme for creative inspiration. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog anytime before the following Friday when the next photo theme will be announced.
2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use a “postaday2012″ or “postaweek2012″ tag.
3. Subscribe to The Daily Post so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements. Sign up via the email subscription link in the sidebar or RSS.
