Window Dressing…the Neon Way

Lens-Artists Challenge #166 – Artificial Light

There are two kinds of light: the glow that illumines, and the glare that obscures.

Sin City Macau….(pictures from my archives)

Macao….the gambling mecca of the world…‘The mindless luxury of a rich civilization...’

The Venetian Macau.…a 39 storey Casino hotel situated in Cotai Strip Macau. It is a 10,500,000 square foot of unmitigated hedonistic dining and casino experience under artificial lights and false ceilings. Modelled on Venetian Las Vegas.

Two more from my collection…cities and streets unknown but the gloss remains

Calgary Stampede….the Fireworks 2017

Hiding the flaws…… Shanghai 2014 , Hong Kong ….the glitz & glamour

  15. Very thoughtful interpretation of the challenge, Indra. Under all the glitz and glamour, there is much depth to be explored. Love the image of the Calgary stampede and there’s always such a buzz about a city skyline like Hong Kong.
