This is a picture of a ride on top of the Stratosphere Hotel Tower in Las Vegas taken from the observation deck. At 866 feet, X Scream is the world's third highest thrill ride. Shaped like a giant teeter-totter, X Scream is an open vehicle that propels riders head-first, 27 feet over the edge of the Stratosphere Tower and dangles them weightlessly above the Strip before pulling it's riders back and over again for more! This shot only shows one angle. The ride actually pretends to break and dips forward so you are facing the ground just when you are ready to pulled back to safety.

This is torture! I am just getting over about a week long bout with the stomach flu and then I see this.

I like the first photo the most. It is bright and show some action. It also affects my stomach!. The second shot is rather uninteresting to me. Just an aerial view of the city with a shadow that has no definition. I have taken many aerial shots like this from similar vantage points in other cities.

I can't even justify gambling with my quarters in those slots, much less with my life (and lunch). :-) Cool shot! (#1)
