Take the Bull by the Horns!

Happy Friday!  What better way to start your weekend than to take a spin on a mechanical bull outside the Talk of the Town Adult Book Store, Downtown.

Time for a new template/background. That Las Vegas Sign was beginning to drive me crazy.

Dancing in the Streets

Sadly I didn't have the right lens for this shot, but I didn't want to spoil her spontaneity by fumbling around and changing lenses. This homeless woman later told me she spent her last dollar on the radio headset she's wearing. She said that she didn't care because she had missed music. I keeping thinking about that, her last dollar to hear music.What would you spend your last dollar on?

Pardon My Rant

I had a crappy customer experience today. I really did and I was... let's just say not the quiet, demure, lady like customer. I wonder how is it, in a state with double digit unemployment I went to buy a laptop,notebook (whatever you want to call it) they could not close the deal? My favorite part of the experience the kid who was helping me after I told him I would buy it goes to the front of the store, helps someone else while leaving me hanging?  One person stepped up I will know tomorrow if he succeeds and I have my new laptop.

Today's photo is from the Williams Costume Shop, painted on the concrete by the front entrance.

Theme Day Favorite Part of Town

It's Theme Day! March's Theme Day is My Favorite Part of Town. My favorite part of town hands down is Downtown. When I think of Downtown Las Vegas the first thing that comes to mind is funky. Downtown embodies Old Las Vegas, while embracing the new and unique. Downtown is my favorite place to roam around with my camera.
