217. Foreign

After Hoover Dam, our last stop on our vacation was Viva Las Vegas……..after leaving the nature filled Grand Canyon and the red rocks of Sedona, Vegas was defintely alive with lights and action!  Where else can you find the Eiffel Tower (and Paris, for that matter) in the US?   When I think of Vegas, “foreign” defintely comes to mind!

  1. Wow! This is a great shot. What were your camera settings.

  2. I hope real paris has a giant neon balloon that says “Paris” on it.

    In fact all major cities should have that. I’ll get to work on one for “Vatican City” right away. I wonder if they’ll like a few showgirls thrown in free?

  3. Lovely shot — and Las Vegas is foreign to me!

    I use that kit lens a lot.

  4. Fabulous night shot! I don’t remember seeing a monitor with a couple kissing when I was there though! lol

  5. Great picture! Funny though that to me Vegas stands for american instead of foreign. Different perspectives… 🙂
