Twitpic of the week
This week’s winner comes to us from @247Vegas365 for a great photo of Excalibur, Luxor and Mandalay Bay, at night, from a unique, off strip angle. It’s tough to determine exactly were the picture was taken however, with MGM’s Park in the works, this is what I imagine the view from the sports arena would look like. Luxor is the center piece of this photo with Excalibur and Mandalay Bay playing the anchors. I don’t know if this was part of the grand design but the dramatic difference in colors between the 3 properties, the white, black and gold, play so well off each other, especially at night; and I love that Luxor beam. This view is nothing short of modern art to me.
