WP Photo Challenge Eye Spy

Frank Lloyd Wright kept odd hours often working in the middle of the night and catching a cat nap during the day.  He had a code so that his architectural students knew when they could approach him. If they spied him sleeping on the bed nearest his desk, they could approach and ask him a question.

If they looked in the window and spied him sleeping on the other bed. Eye y eye, they knew they had better stay out.  

I found it difficult to spy the bed with all the reflections.  

His wife’s open room allowed students to spy on her easily.

I hope you enjoyed spying on the very private life of America’s most famous and controversial architect and his fourth wife.

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. For thirty-five years, I lived in the most beautiful area in Central Valley of California in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains minutes from the Sequoia National Park. As a child I moved from Indiana to Oregon. With my first husband I moved from Oregon to Colorado to California. Every time we moved, it hurt so much to leave friends. I never wanted to move again. After Mark passed, I married again. I told Vince that I could never budge from my roots in California. He said he loved the high desert. I don't think he ever thought he would realize his dream. In November, 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.

  1. I visited one of the homes he designed in the Phoenix area about 20 years ago.The allure of his eclectic style eluded me. I’ll take a good old-fashioned symmetrical structure any day. (And I really wouldn’t want to have people watching me or my wife while we sleep.)

    1. I agree. I did take a picture one of my sweet older lady friends who fell asleep in my recliner when she stayed with us. It was just too cute, but it didn’t go anywhere. I wouldn’t do that today because it would be too tempting to post! 🙂 I would hate for someone to post a picture of me sleeping!!! 🙂 Not a pretty picture. Even just getting up Vince told me I’m sitting her drinking my coffee with flat hair. (the sin of it!)
