Lost in Vegas

Lost in the Vegas of the garden, she wanders
through neon lights and deep shadows,
ready to defend gravity.

    Another fantastic shot of the inhabitants of our gardens. With your flair for detail, lighting, etc., have you ever thought of doing portraits? I don’t know the field but it strikes me there would be money there. Don’t know of any current portrait photographers, which I’m sure shows my ignorance. You are, obviously, as skilled in B&W as in color. — Frank

    She’s exhausted, Vegas never sleeps, and neither does this hard worker.
    Detail: intense! B/W soooo makes it! Another GREAT capture R.L.
