    Bruce Munro creates intriguing sculptures from fiber optics, different light sources, "found objects" such as plastic drink bottles and really about anything he can think of. He had an installation at Longwood Gardens (botanical garden in my town) that I photographed. Sometimes his installations cover acres of ground.

    One of my photos from the installation was selected for the book which was just published.

    That link to his book doesn't work for me. Checking out bookface page reminds me I knew of his work once. I was impressed a few years back bis CDsea.

    Nothing works at Sea Hill Press right now. The site must be down.

    Well, the book is out and they sent me my own hardback copy -- thanks Sea Hill Press!

    Only 8 photographers participated including "staff" photographers so I'm delighted that I got in. Even Bruce Munro himself only contributed two shots, lol. I got one but it make me happy.
