Las Vegas Hotels
In 2008 I took a short Las Vegas vacation to celebrate my mother’s birthday (she likes the slots, don’t ask). I took a few photos at attractions, made half hearted attempts at food photography between bites at buffets (which I love), but my favorite photography subjects were the hotels.
Most of the hotels along The Strip feature a theme which begins with their exteriors and continues through the interiors, attractions, and restaurants. The late June / early July heat was intense and photos were mostly taken during mad dashes to find shade and air conditioning. However, bright sunny days with postcard blue skies and minimal clouds gave the glass structures a nice shine and cast shadows in just the right places.
I’d like to return with my DSLR camera to experiment with the option of exercising more control over the camera settings. I am also convinced that I never saw a water fountain during my stay and I am determined to settle this suspicion.
