Pedestrian View

Taken from the pedestrian bridge: left, Las Vegas' Fashion Show Mall, the old Frontier sign and the Wynn Hotel and Casino building. I was fascinated by the flying saucer architectural feature of the Fashion Show building.

The flying saucer like feature is actually called "The Cloud, at The Strip entrance and is about 128 feet (39 m) above the sidewalk and is 480 feet (150 m) long. During the day, the structure provides shade for the entrance and at night it serves as a movie screen.

Fashion shows occur in the Fashion Show Mall every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. For the winter holidays, the mall has scheduled snow storms inside."
