Sprite


The Arizona Biltmore Hotel is now in my neighborhood so last night David and I stopped for an after dinner cocktail.  I liked the way those Frank Lloyd Wright sprites were lit up at night so I snapped a shot.

Those are interesting carvings, and very well lit. They look like they were inspired by Native American motifs, maybe?

As for the Ralph Lauren store in the previous photo -- yeah, I doubt Ralph considers himself to be in the same league with Pottery Barn.

Very sprightly, especially at nightly! And I was really glad to hear they moved the Arizona Biltmore to your neighborhood! :))

This is a pretty cool shot. Sprites? I'm partial to Diet Mountain Dew. Do the Dew!

The one in the foreground looks amused. Very dramatic lit up like this!

Beautiful but a little uncomfortable, sort of a cross between a kachina ans a space alien.

Beautiful sculptures.

I can see why you like them, quite striking lit up. I'm a fan of cocktails, what did you have Sharon :)
p.s. Aimee gave away our destination I see, no secrets from now on :)

That is a Wright? It seems more ornate than most of his stuff.
