Oh gosh… being on holiday has made me lose track of the days!Â I had no idea it was Wednesday today until I followed up a comment on my blog and found an ABC Wednesday post!
So, without further ado, let me show you my poor offering, which is ‘N‘ for ‘Night Time‘.Â I trawled the archives and found you a few random shots I’ve taken at night over the years, and here they are.
The first is the Bellagio fountains in Las Vegas – you can see them at the top of this post.Â We stayed there last time we visited Vegas and had a great time. It was so wonderful to look out from our room and see those wonderful fountains any time we wanted to.Â This time we’ll be at the Venetian, so probably out of sight of the display, but no doubt there will be other compensations, like an entirely different night view of the pretty lights and neon signs.
We’ll be there in just a couple of days!
Now, back in January 2008, Heathrow Jenn and I made our way down to London’s Leicester Square for a very special event.
Notice all the lights, and the crowds and the decorations?Â This was the premiere of Tim Burton’s Sweeney Todd starring – you guessed it – Johnny Depp!Â I don’t have any pictures of Johnny to show you from this event because we had tickets for the movie, and went in to be seated instead of hanging over the barriers. In one sense it was better because it tipped it down with rain that evening. On the other it was not good because we didn’t get to meet him.
We did get to go to the party afterwards though, and here’s a picture of that.
Pretty, ain’t it?Â See the barmen dressed up as pie makers?Â See the colourful lanterns decorating the roof?Â And, by the way, my blog background is a photoshopped rendition of the lighting effects from the ceiling at this event!Â But we didn’t see Johnny there either, despite the ticket sale propaganda stating quite clearly that he would be there, he was not.Â Boo hiss.
Still on a Johnny Depp theme, this night shot comes from inside the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at LA’s Disneyland.
Never let it be said that I don’t work Johnny in whenever I can!Â And a nautical theme, too!
Here’s a close up of another part of the scenery in that ride
Are those men up in the rigging Navy ratings, or naughty pirates?Â I can’t remember, and it’s too far away to see. I’m guessing pirates … much more likely, don’t you think?
And finally, still on the nautical theme (but sadly not Johnny Depp), here’s one from our Vancouver holiday in May 2007.
This one was taken in Horseshoe Bay one evening. We didn’t actually go to eat in that restaurant, but it looks nice, doesn’t it?
Well, there you go.Â A little rushed, but I made it – just in time.Â Â By next week we’ll be back home, and I hope that I’ll be here once more with the letter ‘O’.Â I will be pretty jet-lagged though, so don’t hold your breath!
