Via Casino is a walkway to the Avalon Casino (Santa Catalina Island, California, USA), and part of it is covered and has lovely archway openings – made to order for wide-angle views. I double-processed this in Adobe Camera Raw to hold details in highlights and shadows. Please note: the Avalon Casino is not a gambling establishment. Today as when it was built in 1929 by chewing gum magnate William Wrigley Jr., the casino houses a very large and luxurious movie theater on the lower level and a circular ballroom on the upper level.

    This is so beautiful!

  • The advantage of being on foot was that I saw this during my walk to the Casino and was able to capture the moment – glad you like it!

    This is a place to be, Celeste. Today we got our first snow.

  • Thanks, Eby! Avalon is quite pleasant most of the year. First snows are often special, I think – enjoy yours!
