Theme Day: Street Lamps


This month's theme was an easy choice for me.  Phoenix has some very unique and in my mind, beautiful street lamps in the downtown area.  These art deco lights remind me of a Frank Lloyd Wright design and who knows, the could have been an inspiration for them.

It does actually look like an art deco spaceship!! But that's not a bad thing ... I admire any city that has the courage to make their installations more interesting!!

I agree. Sort of that FLW look. These are better than most I've seen today.

These definitely have a Frank Lloyd Wright-influenced design.
