Las Vegas at night

During the last week, we visited several Las Vegas areas at dusk and at night. There are so many lights here! And I wanted to take some pictures of night time Las Vegas. Below are pictures taken on Fremont Street (downtown Las Vegas) as well as the always busy Strip.

Natchitosis Light Festival

January 2, 2014 Leave a comment

At 300 years old, Natchitosis is the oldest city in Louisiana.  It is a popular tourist destination, with a lot of history in both the civil rights movement and the slave emancipation.  At Christmas time, they have a very popular light show, enhanced by its placement on the Cane River.  The combination of lights and reflections off the water makes for some very scenic sights.

The city itself is situated on the Cane River, and has a very active main street right on the river.  Restaurants and specialty store all contribute to a great afternoon visiting the city.  Below are a few of the sights of the Light Festival, taken at dusk as it darkened into night.
