We have BEGUN our 9th session of ABC Wednesday.
Today's letter is " B ".
The BELLIGIO hotel is the BEST place to start.
They BUILT the most amazing ferris wheel with BRIGHT
and BRILLIANT BALLOONS and BOLD colors all around.
BE sure to enlarge the BLOG photos to see the detail.

One of the displays was this BICYCLE BALANCING
against the shed. I love the BASKETWEAVE BASKET and
the BEAUTIFUL shades of green.
The landscape was so lovely. I wanted to pick a
BOUQUET of Sunflowers.

Where else but Las Vegas could you find the
of music?

This BUILDING is nicknamed the
BATMAN BUILDING. This was taken
in Nashville, Tennesee.
It's a BRANCH of the A.T.T Technology
I read in the dictionary that the word
BATMAN is a real word, not just the name of
a comic BOOK hero.
BATMAN means an orderly of a BRITISH
military officer. I learn something new every day.
Now don't BE BAFFLED.
Just BOOGIE on over to the link on my
BLOG to see what others have posted.
Take a BREAK, BREW some coffee and
BROWSE to your hearts content.

Beverly said...

Oh, I love your first photo and the second and the third and the fourth. I love the colors in the first one and the lovely composition of the bicycle against the shed. Of course, you know why I like the last one...a reminder of our trip to Nashville.

Its a time I will cherish forever.

You are so good at finding the perfect word to coincide with our letter of the week. You inspire me : )

Wanda said...

Oh what a fun "B" post. I got a picture with the Blues Bros. in Tahoe..

Love all your narrative..always just fun and delightful.

Andy said...

You are into your 9th session because of the challenge and fun that people are having on the meme. It's also interesting to see what other people can do with the ABC's.

Shammickite said...

My goodness, that photo is very colourful! Love those balloons.
And I bet the Blues Brothers were good, I saw the movie multiple times (cos my son loved it) and I saw a Blues Bros act when I was in LA at Universal Studios.... great fun!

aka Penelope said...

What a Bounty of B words you are sharing with us today. It is interesting to learn that Batman was actually a word prior to the comic book. That building definitely reminds me of the character’s head covering, including the openings for his eyes! Very neat!

Another BRILLIANT ABC post! Can't even pick a favorite B photo... maybe the BOLD colored BALLOONS!

Karen said...

A great B post. I would love to see the Belligio hotel.

Leslie: said...

As usual, a brilliant post! I've actually seen the Blues Brothers in action! Love the photo of the bike - I'd like one just like it.

Kathy said...

My favorite picture is the one of the green bike. So pretty amidst the flowers.

Rajesh said...

Brilliant choice of words and beautiful images.

Carver said...

Excellent post for the letter B. I love all the beautiful colors and sights you showed us.

Paula Scott said...

An over the top post! I love the Bellagio and that bicycle is a classic!

Jama said...

Love all your photos, all the colour are so vibrant!

Reader Wil said...

Beautiful photos. That bicycle is very pretty! I didn't know that Batman was an existing word. ABC is very informative.

Ann said...

a very colorful first photo.

Shooting Parrots said...

Fantastic photo at the Belligio. Was this for a special event?

Joy said...

A wonderfully colourful Ferris wheel, that must have been quite a sight. Love the bike.

Laloofah said...

What a brilliantly fun post! You came up with great stuff for the letter B, and your photos are serious eye candy!

I'd recently read about the Bellagio's incredible glass ceiling, and obviously the colorful beauty of the place doesn't end there! Are those balloons made of glass too? I love them! Wouldn't they be pretty in a garden?

The bicycle with the basket among the beautiful blooms is my favorite photo. So pretty, and such a lovely composition. And the Batman Building is intriguing - I'd never heard of it before, but its nickname is perfect!

Lily Hydrangea said...

I used to listen to the Blues Brothers all the time-thanks for reminding me about them!

Kim, USA said...

Love your array of B photos! And the color I find it very beautiful! Thanks for the visit!

Gigi Ann said...

Oh.. Those Blues Brothers can't be beat. I don't know where all their energy comes from.

Thanks for your visit to my ABC post.

Andy said...

Definitely a fun "B".

Mine's a bit more on the subdued side -
Blissful Memories

Tumblewords: said...

I'd love to see the Bellagio - looks like Chihuly glass everywhere - luscious. Excellent B post!

Beverley Baird said...

What a great tour of B! Loved the photos and the descriptions! Great post!

PatioPatch said...

A beatitude of alliterative Bs to blend with your beautiful images. The colours are eye-boggling.

Jay at The Depp Effect said...

There is a lot of Chihuly glass in the Bellagio, but while it is rather fascinating (and lovely) it's not totally to my taste. The balloons are rather gorgeous though!

Liz said...

I can see why they called it the Batman building! I love the Blues Brothers too.

Hilary said...

Such fine, colourful Bs! I love the balloons and the bike.. and of course the blue brothers.

snafu said...

Interesting how each participant treats the ABC Wednesday. I have not looked at many who were not my followers before. Great picture of the Ferris wheel at the Bellagio. How did you achieve that depth of focus?
