Jawdropping ritziness & chichi of this old gold.

Jawdropping ritziness & chichi of this old gold.
The doorway resembles a mosaic of goldenly reflective small rectangular pieces. Look down there at that electrical outlet, to get a sense of the scale of this thing.

I disapprove of how, when you look at the vertical row of lites in the center of the photo, you can see several dents in the strips of metal that parallel the bulbs.

Look close: The lites way up in the upper left are pigtail fluorescents, which are an emotionally complex political issue in the U.S. so be careful who's around if you decide to talk about them, at your thanksgiving dinnertable or wherever.

Along the Las Vegas Strip on November 23rd, 2010, the entrance to the "Slots A Fun" casino, erected in 1979 and now part of the "Circus Circus" casino, off the southwest corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Circus Circus Drive.
