Vegas isn’t a place I thought I’d ever return to after my first visit back in 1987 but, my two month odyssey of travel last fall led me there for a few days.
One thing that can be said about Vegas is it’s a playground for a photographer. I could have taken photos non-stop 24-7 but, that’s not what I was there for. Unfortunately I didn’t have my new tripod with me. Its was in Colorado. So, I made good use of the many trash cans in the area for my low light no light shots. My images of the strip from above were taken from the 45th floor of the Rio Casino and Resort. Shot through the glass. Overall the weather was uncharacteristically bad. Rain cloudy and cool except for a day or 2. This cloudy weather did allow for both a stunning sunrise and sunset. I even encountered an erupting volcano. Lucky for me I have experience photographing these things so, I captured some nice shots. Overall it was a fun trip with lots of great food. The NY NY casino roller coaster is a must do when visiting. Especially at night. The one thing that was a huge turn off was the cigarette smoke. It’s everywhere. Thankfully the tower I was in at the Rio was a no smoking area. It’s a crazy place for sure. I didn’t gamble until the last morning and it was small time 21 on the machines. Made a few bucks. I’m not a gambler. I work too hard for my $ to just let it go so easily. I really had one day to take photos so, I got what I could.
