Travel Theme: Up

This is for Ailsa’s photo challenge theme for this week.  Do check out more entries at the link, there are lots of cool ones!

This is actually a photo of the ceiling in the Bellagio Hotel’s lobby in Las Vegas and it was created by Dale Chihuly:

One thing I have learned when travelling is to always look up, you never know what beautiful things you might find!  Here’s one more from the Alhambra in Granada Spain:

I decided to add one more from La Mezquita in Córdoba, Spain.  As I looked through my photos for the Alhambra photo I came across this one too that I just love:

Weekly photo challenge – Illumination

As soon as I saw this theme I knew which photos to look for.  These are from two different trips to Las Vegas and both times we stayed at the Golden Nugget in downtown Las Vegas.  Great hotel and we got a great flight/hotel combination deal for both trips.  If you’ve never seen the laser light show in downtown Vegas, I highly recommend it!!  It’s called the Fremont Street Experience and it’s a very fun thing to do.

But the first photo is of the Four Queens casino where I had just won $250.  It’s all lit up so it fits with this theme:

The rest are from our trip in 2009.  I’m thinking they change the light show’s theme every so often because we saw a very different show in 2009 than 2008.





DSCN2703Have you ever seen this light show?  If not, the next time you’re in Vegas, do check it out.  I promise you won’t be disappointed!
