Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch'intrate


I'm going to run a few days of B&Ws. You can make wonderful ones in Photoshop from color originals. It's something I've been working on lately.

This is the entrance to a tunnel that runs under a highway to the Lumiere Place casino. It is located across the street from the football stadium. Today's caption is the famous inscription on the gates of Hell in Dante's Inferno: abandon all hope ye who enter here. No secret that I don't like casinos.

Looks like mom put her up to this. I hope it represents either her adult attitude toward authority or aptitute for playing the trumpet.

Madeleine just made my morning! :-)
Been to a few casinos on reservations. They are depressing.

Bibi said...

I feel the same way about casinos, but at least the ones I've seen are more appealing. That said, your BW treatment works well here and am looking forward to the others.

Love the tittle and your treatment of the image. Madeline is looking great Bob!

William Kendall said...

I was wondering about that title.

I think the same thing about a casino.

Madeleine more than makes up for it!

At first I assumed you had been reading Dante. But your post two days ago tells us different. Nonetheless, an apt descripton.

Your daughter is REALLY going to regret teaching M to make this noise. I really feared seeing splattered sweet potato all over the lens.

I found myself laughing out loud watching Madeleine. This was hysterical!
She's really sweet. You made my day.
