The View From Vegas: Over The Rainbow

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Since I live in such a unique town, I thought it would be nice to share some of it with my cyber friends. What you see here is a shot of the famous Bellagio fountains and the Paris Hotel across the street. If you look closely, you'll see a rainbow in the fountain mist. Pretty cool, huh?

This city is such a dichotomy... You've got the glitz and glamour of the strip, and just a couple blocks behind it are run down buildings and trashy open lots. The streets are teaming with visitors from all over the world, equal in their desire to hit the big one. And on almost every corner and freeway ramp are the pan handlers, their cardboard signs worn from frequent use. And sometimes, right in the middle of the Las Vegas strip, you see a rainbow. It's a nice reminder that God lives here, too.

Jen, that's an amazing photo. The rainbow lends such a peaceful quality to the scene - never mind what's happening behind all those doors!

Thanks! When I took the picture, I could see the rainbow in the water, but didn't know if it would come through in the photo. And I didn't realize it till just now, but you can barely tell that there's a busy street between the fountains and the Eiffel Tower. An unexpected bonus!
