Coming Attractions

Casino SIgn

Year Eight, Day One:

Video screens play tricks on digital cameras. This is the color signboard in front of the Lumiere Place Casino and Four Seasons Hotel. My guess is that it works like an analog TV with horizontal lines of color and light re-scanned so many times a second. Digital computer monitors don't photograph this weirdly. 

This woman is performing at the casino's theater soon. I have no idea who she is. I might go if she wore make-up like this.

Yes I've found the same thing too Bob, although just every now and then it works without the lines, might be an angle thing ? said...

Maybe she is a magician and turns her face different colors before disappearing.

... and I might not.
Interesting portrait work you do.

She looks like I do first thing in the morning!

It could be the angle... I've never tried that, though we don't have that kind of billboard here.
