If you can imagine…I was walking past this and completely missed it. In fact, if it wasn’t for another photographer with a tripod setup, I might have just strode on by without ever knowing what could have been. My target was something else but as it usually works out for me, the thing I intended to photograph becomes nothing compared to what I find along the way. It happens to me all the time. I’ve almost started to count on it.

So I was grateful for this other photog I saw getting his own shots from another angle. He made me pause, look and realize the beauty of these lights. It’s hard to see in a still photography, but they pulsated with light in different patterns, lighting up the floor and ceiling of this little covered area.

    Wow! I love the way the pillars reflect different light patterns on the ground. Very bright, glitzy, and wonderful!!! Glad you finally woke up and captured this magnificant shot, Mike. It reminds me of my 8 years in Vegas!

    I'm much like you in finding a better shot while going out for the shot I had in mind. This is incredible. I agree with Patyy… this seemed more like Reno or Vegas than Phoenix… funny.
