Sitting in Cleveland recently, waiting for our flight home to seattle, we heard on the loud speaker that they were looking for a couple volunteers willing to change their flight. We volunteered and were offered first class to las vegas, a 4-hour delay, then first class to seattle (not to mention the $600 in vouchers). We hit the jackpot. I've been entranced with architecture lately and many of the pics below show it. These are random things seen on our whirlwind tour in vegas. oh and by the way...tracy won $400 on a slot machine as he was walking by.
a restaurant at the Aria (a new casino in the "city centre")
I just loved this wall display
This is one of my most favorite shots. It's a light under the swirling water.
what I wouldn't give to have this sculpture in my backyard.
this and the blue spikes below are dale chihuly
I'm in love with this tipping type of architecture. We have some in Seattle and it makes me happy everytime I see it.
in my next life, I think I want to be an architect.
the inside of an elevator in the "oriental mandarin hotel". The wood was just beautiful and the etched metal...YUMMY.
interesting restaurant in the "crystal" shopping mall close to Aria.
window display. I may have to get me some ping pong balls and have some fun making something to hang in my studio.
This was a LONG staircase that used real slices of agate and then was backlit! It was amazing.
They had a stand of all these tubes with water swirling. I've always thought water is more beautiful that practically anything!
Gigantic metal trees were incredible.
I believe these flowers were made from chocolate.
Aria Casino is a feast for the eyes.
