The challenge this week is “Focus on the Details…”. Tammie Jean, author of the blog, “Long Drive to Nowhere” has challenged us to pay attention to what’s around us, details we may miss through not paying attention. …with this topic … we can reveal those things that hide in plain sight. They can be large or small or tiny, exotic or everyday: the shape of a particular mountain ridge, a wallpaper pattern, a fine bit of wood carving, the veins in an insect’s wing, or a thousand other examples.
I kept this challenge in mind while I was in Las Vegas last week; here are my catches:
This was part of the ceiling walking from Paris Las Vegas to the hotel/casino next door…I had to lay down on the floor to get the shot!
This was the ceiling of one of the hotels at the check in area…all lovely glass flowers! Don’t they look like colorful jellyfish?
This image is a PERFECT example of WHY you should pay attention to your shots…damn tour guide!
In this shot, there was so much going on, so much to look at…but I was focused on one little thing…can you see? [you can click on it to enlarge it]
Sometimes you have to look beyond the prickly parts of life to see the beauty.
It helps to have an imagination. You might see a tree…I see a pointy rabbit shadow!
You know the old saying you can get blood out of a rock? Well, apparently in Vegas you can get SAP out of a rock…it was 117 the day I took this picture!
There was a herd of horses…and one pregnant mare…in that horrid heat!
Last but not least, while this wasn’t taken in Vegas, it is a close up shot…
