Twitpic of the week
This week’s winner is comes to us from @DebSandidge for a really great picture of the neon Boneyard at night. The picture shows a long stretch of signs lined by the Horseshoe, Stardust, Sassy Sally’s and punctuated by a fully functioning LaConcha. It’s good to see that they make the effort, in some cases, to used colored exterior filters to illuminate the non-functioning signs but seeing the LaConcha light up the way she is supposed to be and be able to walk right up to her, that is what I really hope is the grand plan.
