This is a really nice variety of photos. My favorites are the decanter and the Wells Fargo building. The nighttime view of the Stratosphere is pretty amazing as well. What a view!

Thanks for the compliments! One of these days I'll get closer to the bright lights of the Strip after dark. Usually this is about as close as I get, and we go often enough that it's always easier to say "next trip".

dame/dawg - it's always easier to take pictures of things that you are good at. The trick is to get good at other things, it pays off in unexpected ways. While my goal with this 365 project is to take one picture a day, I have an unexpressed sub-goal to try lots of new things. I've made a list of things I want to work on and while I've done some of them, over half the list is still pending. And I've added a couple of new ideas, I'll probably add more later on.

This is sure making you think and you're coming up with some great shots.

That sky is beautiful and I just love the glass stopper shot.

I also like the variety of subjects and conditions, makes me feel in a rut with my stuff but inspired by your shots.

Harriet, how about a panorama from the top of the Rio, that is a great view?

Tom - you are right, a pano from the Rio would be very cool. Wonder if they returned Buzio's back to how it used to be - the last time I ate there I wasn't impressed as they had changed the menu. The Stratosphere is really too tall for panos, though I had fun taking pictures of some of the high-rise resorts. Maybe next time.

Hans - You hit the reason why I started this project, well one of them. I was in a big rut and that led me to not bother taking anything. I think I'm becoming a better photographer as I learn new techniques.

Rodney - I always have a tendency to over-analyze things, but that's OK - love to experiment and see what works.
