Photographer's Note

I know there're some technical flaws in this photo, but it's how the camera gave it and I have no knowledge to make better :-( I just wanted to show Las Vegas by night, last Friday.
I never planned to go to Las Vegas, Nevada, but I had the opportunity and I grabbed it. It's a place I won't go again, even if I'm nearby. I'm nothing against the people that go there; everybody's free. Simply it's not my cup of tea. Anyway I enjoyed the opportunity to see Las Vegas. It seemed so artificial, not a real city, but a kind of immense playground (not exactly because of playing in casinos, but playing in general meaning). I was also shocked by the enormous amount of money necessary to create and maintain that artificial city of light, and the equaly huge amounts that visitors spend in gambling, sex and drinking.
Las Vegas is an utmost showcase of many features of our civilization. It's worth seen from an anthropological point of view.
I guess most of this view is the Showcase Mall, in South Las Vegas Boulevard (south end of the Strip). Location in WikiMapia: 36.1030353, -115.1724243.
