Opulence



And now for something a bit different:

One of 3 gorgeous chandeliers hanging in the foyer of the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion at the Music Center in Los Angeles.

. . . . . .



I ushered there my first year of college and did not think much of the fancy chandeliers back then. But I did appreciate listening to the LA Philharmonic under Zubin Mehta ... and concerts by Neal Young, and Jethro Tull in a very unusual setting.

Icy, icy, icy! Some of our trees downstairs looked like this last winter. I wonder how much this chandelier weighs?

Hope said...

Beautiful! I can't imagine being the person(s) who installed this in the ceiling....that must weigh lots!

It's a beautiful chandelier. I can imagine how lovely it must look when it is illuminated. Would hate to clean it though!

Wow! Love the prism colours on the top layer and the overall shimmer.

You could almost start playing the "Chandelier" all those crystals I am sure would make wonderful sounds!!

Have you ever really listened to the lyrics of Aqualung? That was my polyester clad beau's favorite song. I too have a chandelier worth a gander. More eclectic then opulent. I like the way you cropped your photo.

I loved your sunset driving home the other day too. Glad you DID pull over!

Excellent photo. I love the way the light bounces around. I bet that chandelier is a bugger to clean!

May I say 'dazzling'. The things we sometimes overlook. Good thing you didn't this as it makes such a great shot.
