Weekly Photo Challenge – Urban

Showgirl spirit

An unusually feathery showgirl.

When I started participating in the Weekly Photo Challenge, I told myself that all my pictures would be from here on the farm.  But then this week’s challenge, Urban, came along, so I had to branch out a little.

The challenge post talked about capturing the reality of urban areas, not the prettified parts, but this is my favorite urban photo.  I love the feathery transient effect of the showgirl amidst the solid reality of the buildings and tourists, and how most of the people aren’t even looking at her.

I took it on our first trip to Las Vegas this April, down on Fremont Street.  I wish I could say I achieved this effect on purpose, but I think the battery charge was just running down.
