Bright lights, big city

When I pair the words "bright" and "city", two cities spring to my mind: Paris, the City of Lights, and Las Vegas, the city of neon lights. I do love seeing all the lights shining on The Strip at night.


Even inside the casinos, everything shines bright with all the glitz and glitter. This is a photo I took of Cirque du Soleil's Zumanity show at New York New York (ok, ok, you caught me, I wasn't supposed to do that but I couldn't resist sneaking one in.)


In the daytime, Vegas still shines bright -- this time, in the light of the hot desert sun. The glare makes it challenging to take good photos (for me anyway), but the results are so worth the effort -- I love the way the water fountains sparkle and the way The Pea's hair shines golden in the sun.
