The "W" in Dallas


Click the pictures for a better look.
This is an easy ABC Wednesday.
Here is the W hotel in Dallas Texas as seen from a few different angles. This hotel caters to the young hip crowd. I once took a peek inside and it was as dark as a night club and had modern art and lots of colorful neon lights and well dressed young people on display or on the prowl. Not my kind of place but it was pretty interesting to see.

  9. Great shots, but I'm intrigued. Does the "W" stand for something?

  14. I don't much like modern buildings, but for some reason, I get a great deal of satisfaction from photographing them! I'd have liked the chance to photograph that 'W', too! LOL!

  15. I've never been to Texas but that hotel sounds pretty interesting. I think I could handle about 5 minutes inside though...I'm not much into the really loud music and darkness thing.

  16. Hotel W is new for me. A fantastic looking place. I normally go for the old historic but once in a while I like to step in to the ultra modern.
    Very cool.

  17. When I saw the W, I immediately thought of former President Bush; I don't suppose this has any connection to him:) How interesting--I just came from visiting Grace and Bradley's "W" hotel in Seoul. I feel as though I've been on a trip around the world this morning! Thanks for sharing.

  22. There's no W hotel in Manila but I think it would be a very popular place here if there were.

    What is that 'hole' halfway up the building?

  23. Wow, superb reflections... I love the way the sky is looking... these are really amazing pictures!!

  24. Yep, you got the big W all right. The building is quite beautiful.
    Thanks for your funny comment on John. You know, actually it WAS next to a pool--a fish pond. And one of the monks keeps bees on the monastery grounds to make honey. The locusts can also be translated as carobs, which grow freely around here. But I'll suggest to the Father Superior to serve these foods next year on the feast. :)
