Taking in the View


Two weekends ago, my friend David and I attended a Phoenix Symphony event on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.  Standing on the raised area around Symphony Hall, I spotted this view that takes in the Hyatt Hotel in downtown Phoenix.  After the concert, David and were going to meet a friend for a drink in the revolving restaurant at the top of the hotel.


We walked over there and discovered that the restaurant was closed for the evening for a private event.  So before we left to find a new location, I snapped this photo of some new decor in the hotel lobby.  I'm not sure what to make of these wooden heads!

Beautiful light in that first photo. I agree , I am not so fond of antlers on the wall, either from wood or real.

Bummer about the restaurant! I think wooden heads are better than real ones -- at least there's something sculptural about them. I've never been much for taxidermy!

A fine evening downtown Phoenix!
I rather like these sculptured heads & antlers as the wood is beautifully carved.

That must have been some fancy event if it closed the whole restaurant!

The heads are unusual. There's a circular restaurant on top of one of our hotels downtown. I don't know if it's revolving.

What a lovely way to spend the afternoon Sharon. The stag heads make a dramatic image, super shadows ☺

Those are some interesting heads on the wall. The antlers looks a bit intimidating so I'm glad they aren't real!

I like the wooden heads and their shadows, Sharon!

The hotel is pretty and to top it off is a rotating restaurant, very cool. The carved antlers make great shadows.

And that is a nice view!

The wooden heads, as the case may be, are either Texas Longhorns or Arizona Longhorns. I'd vote for the latter! :) It they were real, however, I'd have to think these represent wooden heads in the Texas legislature!

At least no animals were harmed in the making of that artwork.
