weekly photo challenge: let there be light

Posted on Updated on

Genesis 1:3

Then God said, “Let there be light” & light appeared

This week’s photo challenge made us think a little bit about which photo to use. Would we use a photo of a candle from a birthday cake? Or the sun rising? Or a light show? Or a tunnel with a light at the end?

We ended up choosing this photo… a photo taken of Las Vegas from our hotel room: with the lights in the fountains, to the lights in the parking lot, to the lights on the Eiffel Tower…. Let there be LOTS of light!

    Wow! That’s a wonderful interpretation of ‘light’ – all the better for being a strange partner to the biblical prompt!!

      It’s a pretty cool place – worth seeing it at least once in a lifetime!

    That’s a great photo! Las Vegas is one of my favorite places to visit. (BTW, which hotel did you stay in?)

    What a really nice photo. I like the angle of being able to see a wider fabric of light.
    Vegas at night is amazing, out there and so “wow” but in the daytime, you just feel deflated and disappointed. You can’t deny it’s a city of great wonder though!

    Las Vegas says “lights” better than anyplace else, I think.

      Thanks for stopping by… Las Vegas is all lights at night, we recall the first time we saw it during the day, it looked so different πŸ™‚

    It’s been years since I’ve been through Vegas. It’s even brighter! Great photo!
