Excellent capture, Fred. The color, contrast, and focus are all right on target. Really nice blue sky on that one also.

That would be the extent of my interest in going to Vegas. Just walk the strip, take outside pictures of all the casinos and go see the Hoover Dam.

I really like this shot, even though it is so unreal. Not having been to Paris, I have seen plenty of photos of the city and this image just looks like a clever photoshop job. That this really exists in Lost Wages... My wife says that she has to go back there for work at some point -- I keep saying she can go on her own, no interest. But sights like these could change my mind. Plus, I can sneak off while she is working and go back to the Grand Canyon.

That is exactly what I did. And also a trip to the Grand Canyon in
a Twin Beaver. A Great Vacation

....well, besides that I always enjoy visiting my brother. During the years we lived in Huntington Beach, CA Bonnie & I would drive there on a minutes decision and often. Her parents lived there as did & do other of her relatives and my brother has lived there for about 15-years.

Too, in those way-back years of the Rat Pack, Elvis and them others Vegas was a whole lot more fun but not as photogenic. The food was cheap then too!

I've been to Vegas 5 times for business each time. It is an unreal place where everything exists but nothing is real. First time was with the wife (different employer paid for her to come) and we did the hoover damn but didn't make it to the canyon. Last four times have been for a big conference for software sans-wife. Since I don't gamble the whole thing to me is about networking and since I am a customer I get plied with drink and food all week. I've learned over the years that if you don't gamble but someone else is paying the tab there is some great places to eat and drink in Vegas and I kinda just go with the flow and have a good time.

This last time I actually brought the camera with the intention of getting out to red rock canyon http://www.redrockcanyonlv.org/ which is not too far outside town but the conference prevented me from getting out there at sunset and the food and drink kept me in bed way past sunrise so the only shot I took was this sunset from the hotel with myself and my pen semi-visible in the reflection .... lol

Guys, guys, guys. I lived and worked out there for two years, and it is a photographer's paradise. I still go back from time to time on vacation. From the fountains of Bellagio at night, the colorful lights and buildings, Red Rock Canyon, Valley of the Fire, the desert, Lake Mead, Hoover Dam, flights to Grand Canyon, and short drives to Zion National Park in Utah, or to Death Valley in California, etc, the photo opportunities are endless. (And that is not even considering the excellent entertainment and food, etc when you are not taking photos.) A lot of folks don't even realize all the things to do out there that does not even involve gambling.
