Downtown Container Park — Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter K

This is our entry in Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter K – Needs to have the letter K anywhere in the word.

Downtown Container Park, on downtown Fremont Street in Las Vegas, Nevada, is a newer shopping center constructed using renovated shipping containers.   Here you will find retail shops, restaurants, bars, and live family-friendly free entertainment.  Just for the kids there are a tree house, a play area, and a 33-foot slide.

At the entrance to the Container Park is a 150:1 scale model of a female praying mantis. This 40-foot-tall insect breathes fire from its two antennae and blasts flames 20 feet in the air in time to music played in the park.

There are no casinos and none of the grit that is so prevalent only two blocks away in the better-known area of Fremont Street.

These photos were taken on October 27, 2017. Specs are:

First photo: Olympus TG-4, ISO 500, f/2, 1/30 sec, -1 EV, 19.8mm (35mm-equivalent)

Second photo: Olympus TG-4, ISO 800, f/2.7, 1/20 sec, -1 EV, 33mm (35mm-equivalent)
