Friday Town Shoot-Out Theme: Sounds Around Your Town
This weeks theme of Sound was chosen by NanU. To learn more about our photography group you can visit the Friday My Town Shoot Out Main Page. Also, if you'd like to jump right in and participate you can add your link to Mr. Linky and that's also where you will see links of other participants for this week.
This theme was a bit of a challenge for me.
Because I live in Las Vegas I think others expect to see photos of casinos and traffic.
Casinos certainly are noisy and they fit perfectly with this theme, but it's too obivous.
I prefer to show you the unexpected in my town.
But I won't disappoint.
I do have one or two casino photos for your viewing pleasure.
A colorful and bejeweled carousel indside one of our outlet malls.
It makes the sound of music as it goes round and round.
That's the sound of the bat making contact with the ball.
The crowd goes wild as they cheer for their team.
Woo Hoo! I love my baseball.
And baseball players are way cuter than football players.
The sound of a waterfall in my local park.
The sounds of water splashing, motors whirling, and laughter on Lake Mead.
My blender makes a very loud noise when I'm making smoothies.
But it's well worth it when it comes out like this...
Yummy. Lots of anitoxidents and lots of protein.
The sizzle of the food in the frying pan as I cook dinner.
Mmm Mmm tasty.
And as promised, a peek inside a busy casino.
The crowd watches in amazement as the bartender balances a bottle on his forehead.
There is music playing in the background,
people talking and laughing,
applause breaking out,
and the ding ding ding of the slot machines.
Night life. Can you hear the energy?
No, I don't think you can with this photo but it's the only one I have.
Thanks for visiting me this week.
