    As usual the company was great, and the exhibit was hard to describe, so wonderful. A photographers dream. Thanks Bob! Sorry I missed the meal afterwards, I got lost.

    I had been to this exhibit a few years ago while living in Phoenix. So much more has been added and the surroundings much better for the exhibit. Had a wonderful time. Overall, the weather wasn't too bad. While standing under a gazebo to get out of a downpour I happened to meet a gentleman from Olathe, KS who worked with my uncle. Such a small world! Thanks for putting this meet up together and thanks to everyone who shared their memberships.

    I can't remember the last time I enjoyed an art exhibit so much. The sculptures are beautiful, and integrate into the gardens perfectly.

    With the weather, I am going to officially back out, but I will still try to make it. Just don't want someone trying to account for whether I am there, and making sure I'm included, if I am not there.

      I got off work late, but was still going to head down, but it looks like the flood gates are scheduled to open about the same time I would arrive, so I am going to take a "rain check" and try another evening. ;0(

    I was talking to a friend a couple of days ago who told me that, when he last went to the Botanic Gardens, he was told that he would have to pay an extra $25 in order to go in with his "professional lens" (i.e. DSLR) camera. Has anyone else had this happen, or heard of it?

    August 24, 2014

    • Cate E.

      I took my camera and tripod and did not have to pay an extra fee.

      August 24, 2014

    • Bob C.

      incorrect only time there is any "camera fee" if the shoot is going to be for professional purposes we have also a number of shoots there and it has never been an issue

    I went to this exhibit earlier on in the month, and it was well worth the trip down there. I did have to park a ways away though, as the garage across the street was full as was then neighborhood parking close by.
