Hi everyone, thank you so much for following this collection! I've decided to combine future posts into my Urban Images collection, linked below, which will now include everything that was in Street Scenes, Mannequin Reflections and Abstract Las Vegas, plus the urban posts from In Black and White and Best of the Uncollected. I won't move older posts out of this collection for now, so you can always browse the history. Thanks again for visiting!

To the Point

From a walk in the new Park along the Strip with +Pam Boling. The sculpture, of course, is Bliss Dance by Marco Cochrane.

Reforestation

Our world is losing its forests and wild places at an alarming rate -- alarming to us, at least. But They already have plans for a new ecology...

Oversight

Okay, sure, this...Being...is in Las Vegas to abduct helpless Earthlings and generally commit alien mayhem. But still, couldn't someone have left him a ticket at will call for the Gwen Stefani concert?

Temple of the Bag

Once upon a time, I am told, the Bag had a function. It carried Things. Oh, there was innovation of course -- a nifty new handle here, a snazzy zipper pull there, perhaps a leopard print; designers in the Fornax Sector were known to be especially clever. But fashion began to get out of hand. Bags were constructed of materials barely known in nature, with half-lives of femtoseconds; they were gengineered together with small household pets; they were shrunken to the point where you could lose your Bag under a microscope, and grown to the scale of a small moon. Finally, one of the Nyryx kings -- the history books disagree on whether it was Xwyr III or one of his many spawn -- undertook to convert his entire planet to the Temple of the Bag. Atmosphere and oceans, crust, mantle and core -- and, of course, the dwellings and even the bodies of 19 billion inhabitants -- every molecule was sacrificed to create the ultimate temple. Glowing in every wavelength, it orbits in a forgotten corner of our spiral arm, a giant poem to last season. Today, I hear, the Shoe is trending...

A special for the finale of #scifiaugust  with +Jacob Dix (+Sci Fi August), and the return of #bagswednesday  with +Magda Sz, +Magdalena MadZ, +Nancy Battis Vita, +André Behrmann and +Michael Behrmann (+Bags Wednesday).

Summer Skies

Las Vegas does sometimes have clouds, even a bit of a "monsoon season" -- though I know those of you who deal with real monsoons would laugh.  I caught this sunset at the end of July.
