  1. That first one is a very neat capture and the soda fountain is a unique twist on the theme.

  2. I love Vegas, always fun. We stay at the Aria. Used to stay at, New York New York, but they ruined that place years ago, so we left. Supposed to go in September but can’t find anyone to feed Emily, so I won’t get to see Queen. Sigh. Your pictures are wonderful. Very cool.
    Love the Bellagio fountains.

    • Thanks so much. We seem to stay different places each time. My favorite has been The Flamingo. We stayed at Bally’s last time though, and it was pretty great. The casino was big and the sports book was terrific. It’s an interesting place, that’s for sure. Next time, I’m doing TopGolf! 😃


      • I’ve tried to write this several times but my computer had something else in mind, I guess. Anyway. I love the garden at the Flamingo. The Koi and the parrots are wonderful. Always stop there to see them. I LOVE Queen and want to go so much, but Emily needs me, so I can’t go. I’ve only stayed at NY and Aria. I do love Aria, it’s so calming and understated and it’s attached to that fabulous shopping center, which is air-conditioned. LOLOL

    • Yeah, and i wanted to get a good shot of the entire fountain show but when I finally got over to see it, and grabbed a perfect spot, the shoes were cancelled for the night because of high winds. 😃


  6. Love your original ideas of the fountain Prompt. Of course the soda fountain takes me back to high school days at the local drugstore, where almost every day after school wed stop for a Coke and French fries. Those were the days!😉
