Oh yes, that’s right. I’m participating in a 30 day photo challenge. I nearly forgot. Today’s theme is “shiny”.

Las Vegas, Venetian hotel, giant mask, lights

Las Vegas is a giant, shiny, brilliant, glittery, sparkly metropolis in the middle of absolutely nothing. I’ve been to a lot of different cities in North America, as well as in Europe, and I’ve never been to a place with so much energy.

You can visit my dear friend Ziva to see who else has taken extremely creative license with the themes because they didn’t plan ahead and had to search through their cell phone to find something even remotely usable in a very abstract-I’m-desperately-reaching-here-people kind of way participated in the official kick-off of 30 Days of Photographs III.

    Hi Nicky! Happy October, see ya round the challenge ~

  • For someone who took extremely creative license with the theme because they didn’t plan
    ahead and had to search through their cell phone to find something even remotely
    usable in a very abstract I’m-desperately-reaching-here-people kind of way, you
    did amazingly well, my love.

  • Love, love, love. love it!!

    What the fuck is this? It looks like a giant, illuminated mardi gras mask. Which is weird. Who needs a giant illuminated mardi gras mask that has no eyes and yet stares are you unblinkingly 24/7 like some kind of judgmental party god? Sometimes, I just don’t understand Las Vegas….

  • That is weird – but it IS shiny 🙂

  • If you didn’t plan ahead to use this photo – then I am VERY curious to see what other kinds of things you found interesting enough to snap with your phone camera…it is incredibly cool though!

  • I hate Las Vegas, but I love this photo of the be-jeweled bra for a woman with 3 boobs and two side boobs!

  • Ah, yes, the Bra Casino.

  • Paula Wooters

    Shiny Vegas style! Yay!

  • Yes, Vegas has all sorts of shiny things. Great idea for the shiny prompt.

  • Aaaaaaand… we’re off! 1 down, 29 to go! Shiny AND sparkly! Sweet!

  • ladyV

    that one is super shiny. well done.

  • Hi Tami! We’ll most certainly see each other around this challenge… unless, of course, it kills me first.

  • And this is why I love you and am participating in this most evil, soul-crushing challenge.

  • Thanks, sweet thing!

  • It’s fucking shiny, is what it is. And you’re not supposed to understand Las Vegas. It just is and sometimes that’s enough.

  • Las Vegas is weird… but shiny, Babs. 🙂

  • Thanks LM! The other things I snapped with my phone are not worthy of curiosity, trust me!

  • Really, you hate Las Vegas? I really loved it, the energy, the action, the hustle and bustle… amazing! And of course, the bejeweled bra for women with extra boobs.

  • What happened in Vegas, stays in Vegas, Dufus. Remember that! 🙂

  • Vegas-style is the shiniest, Paula. Without a doubt!

  • Love it, Cheryl! And how did I miss you in that outfit?! I must have been distracted by all those… people… beside you. 🙂

  • Only 29 more to go… *curls up into the fetal position*

  • Thanks Lady V!

  • Sweet! And really not THAT far of a reach. Really.

    I’m so damned bummed Disqus shit the bed on my blog today. What could be less fun that working my fingers to the bone only to have 0 comments for my efforts? Nothing, that’s what.

  • Barb

    Lets face it… Las Vegas is just one giant shiny!

  • Thanks, Cheryl!

    I know, I’ve been trying to comment on your blog for hours now. What a drag, eh? 🙂

  • It is, Barb. One big, loud, shiny. It’s a lot of fun. 🙂

  • Barb

    I enjoyed your pic! I never saw a RR up close! 🙂


  • Coco

    Vegas it self is shining and I like it a bit mysterious shine.

  • Ha Ha!!! A bra casino. Dufus cracks me up.

  • I wore that exact same one to work today. Uh, did I just type that out loud?

  • Are you still hung over?

    That looks like an eye migraine, and it sure is shiny.

  • MikeWJ

    Thank you, Sensei.

  • You’re welcome, Grasshopper.

  • Exactly! 🙂

  • Thanks Coco!

  • Hah! You think that’s funny? You should have seen the boob wearing it…

    No? Ok, yeah, that Dufus is a funny guy.

  • I didn’t hear anything. 🙂

  • No, I’m not still hung over!! Jeez, Lauren, what kind of person do you take me for?

    Ok, never mind. Please don’t answer that question. 🙂

  • If any city could be called shiny, it is Las Vegas. I lived there and I still see shiny when I close my eyes.

  • Damn, I was only there for a few days! I can’t imagine living there…

  • Down here, they’re not common. We were up north for a long weekend and stumbled upon a wedding. This was the couple’s ride for leaving. The limo had 8-10 doors on each side. A bit grandiose for my taste. (Funniest thing is the groom ran a 10K road race the morning of his wedding.)
