Showgirl street performers riding an escalator in Las Vegas

In December 2018, I was in Las Vegas for Major League Baseball's Winter Meetings. I worked for a Minor League Baseball team at the time and I was enjoying a break in my schedule by walking the famous Las Vegas strip. As I was getting ready to hop on one of the outdoor escalators to cross a street, two women dressed as showgirls stepped on before me. I looked up and saw the MGM sign and realized I had the perfect shot for photo that would really capture the feel of the strip. I didn't have my DSLR on me, so I pulled my Google Pixel phone out and stealthily snapped a few frames.
