Photo taken in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, beginning of December 2008, with my Canon PowerShot S5 IS camera ( 1/8 s; f/2.7; ISO 250; flash)

I originally taking the photo because of the wonderful night lights of this city, but then I stepped back and decided to include the grafitti on the low wall of this backyard, which looks thousands light years away from this glamour right next to it, so sober and down to earth….

    Excellent Gili, I have tried shots like this before taken from the “edge” of town with the skhyline in the background. You pulled it off superbly. – Cora

  • Thanks so much, Cora! Vegas seems to be THE city of lights… I thought this EDGE gave it a cynical twist;-)
