The most noble of all the gasses

Neon.  It’s just so cool when you put it in a glass tube and give it a few thousand volts.

Of all the places in Las Vegas to truly appreciate the beauty of neon, my favourite is at the intersection of Fremont Street and Casino Center Blvd.

Vegas has neon lights everywhere, but nowhere is it quite as intense as between the Fremont Casino and Binion’s.  You have a wall of red on one side and a mass of turquoise on the other.  I must have been there dozens of times and it still gives me chills.

Of course my video isn’t going to do it justice.  In fact, the key moments last just a few seconds in each direction, and because it was so shaky I had to turn the stabilisation all the way up, which has made it a bit fuzzy in parts.

Hopefully you’ll still be able to see why this is my very favourite stretch of Las Vegas scenery.
