Week 38 – #31 Neon

on April 20, 2016

What has more neon …. Vegas Baby!

31 - Neon-7

This Panorama was taken from the Red Rock Casino looking across the valley towards the Vegas Strip.   This is about 10 miles away (as the crow flies).   This is only the part of the skyline of the strip and does not include Freemont Street and that end of the town.  That part was too far away to be seen very well. The Stratosphere is the tower on the left and Mandalay Bay is the gold tower on the right.   Since my tripod and I were at odds, this was taken handheld and the structure was bouncing so between it and me, it is not as steady as I had hoped.  Guess I am going to have to go back to do this again.   LOL.  Thanks to my friends Gloria, Becky, and Carol for making the trip to Vegas so I could take pictures. There was arm twisting involved.  (if you believe that……….)

Though not neon – I had to include the Swarovski Crystal sphere outside of Ballys.

      Thanks. Other than the pano – they were taken from the car. I could not believe how crowded it was for a Monday night. My shirt came home with me but I did make a deposit.

      Thanks – I know huh. Gloria didn’t think I could get them through the windshield. Glad you didn’t make me twist too hard. Thanks again for all the driving and sharing.
