I can't come to ABC Wednesday and the letter " E " without including ELVIS.
Unfortunately he EXPIRED far too EARLY to really ENJOY his lifestyle.
ELVIS was on of my favorite singers,
ESPECIALLY in his younger years.
This statue was outside a very ECCLECTIC collectibles shop.

Talk about EXORBITANTLY wealthy.
This store was so EXTRAVAGANT and ELEGANT.
I think only the very ELITE could afford to ENTER the store.

I love the multiple EIFFEL towers in the windows of the
Crystal Mall in Las Vegas.
I think my Hubby did an EXCELLANT job of capturing
the ESSENCE of France.

The ESCALATOR in the mall made an interesting photo op.
The stairs were quite steep and I think the ELDERLY would
have a difficult time EVALUATING and ESTIMATING the
stairs moving upward.
I have EMPATHY for them.
Sometimes its difficult riding them,
So I take the ELEVATOR.
Don't forget to go to my link on the sidebar and see what EVERYONE
has posted for the letter E.
photo will show more detail.

Love those Eiffel tower reflections!! And that escalator, oh my. I have trouble with even a slow one, I know of seniors who have really hurt themselves on these things.

I love how you capture intriguing images in such a variety of locations and in unusual ways!

You really are one of the most ENTERTAINING stops on ABC Wed... and you are right, your hubby's multiple capture of the Eiffel is EXTRAORDINARY!

Joy said...

Elvis lives, great music. Love the 'Eiffel tower' shot. An wonderfully extravagant E.

Dhemz said...

love what you did with the letter E....:) awesome composition!

I love Elvis too and too bad he is gone before I really know his songs. Thankfully I could listen and watch him on You tube. I never thought that he has many gospel songs which I do love to sing. Thanks for the post I like it and the visit too ^_^


Jay at The Depp Effect said...

A very extravagant collection of Es! I love the Eiffel Towers 'mosaic' reflection.

And yes, Elvis was wonderful in his youth. So sad the way he ended.

Paula Scott said...

Excellent as always! Extraordinary too! The words escape me to put it any more eloquently.
Need I say more? ; )

I loved the "young" Elvis. I saw all his movies and I had a reel to reel tape recorder and recorded all Elvis' sons from my friends records. I never saw him in person as he never came to England. The "Vegas" Elvis wqs just a caricature of his former self. Such a shame.

Hilary said...

You always do such an excellent job of putting these posts together. I especially like the tower reflection so kudos to your hubby too.
