Photographer's Note

Fallowing my trip series through The State of California and Las Vegas, Nevada.
This picture was taken in front of the Paris Las Vegas Hotel just at the time that the blue hour was disappearing and while the water fountains show was on.
Thousands of tourists go every night beginning at 8pm to see this wonderful free water show, as usual I didn't have a tripod, just rested my camera on the baranda, held my breath to took the shot.

From Wikipedia:
Las Vegas is the most populous city in the state of Nevada, the seat of Clark County, and an internationally renowned major resort city for the gaming industry, shopping, and entertainment. Las Vegas, billed as The Entertainment Capital of the World, is famous for the number of large casino resorts and their associated entertainment. The city's tolerance for various forms of adult entertainment earned it the title of Sin City, and this image has made Las Vegas a popular setting for films and television programs. Outdoor lighting displays are everywhere on the Las Vegas Strip and are seen elsewhere in the city as well; as seen from space, Las Vegas is the brightest city on earth.

Established in 1905, Las Vegas officially became a city in 1911. With the growth that followed, at the close of the century Las Vegas was the most populous American city founded in the 20th century (a distinction held by Chicago in the 19th century). As the 28th most populous city in the United States, Las Vegas is one of the most populous cities in the American West.

Hope you like it.
