Let there be light


Last week I attended a dinner meeting at the Valley Ho, a resort hotel in downtown Scottsdale. I noticed these light fixtures on the ceiling of the dining room and couldn't help thinking they reminded me a reels of film. Is it just me, or does anyone else see a resemblance?

Your description is perfect. Long before I lived in Arizona, my father came to Scottsdale each year for an electronics industry trade association that had its annual meeting at the Valley Ho Resort in downtown Scottsdale for decades.

Yes, absolutely this evokes the old movie reel image.

Very retro. I agree - reminds me of film reels. Great shot. You have such a good eye.

They do look like reels for film or maybe a space ship.

I agree about the film reel but the first thing that popped into my mind when I saw it was "disco"!

Now that you mention it, it's all I can think of. The lamp is really cool!
