Setting up a tripod inside the casino was a bit tricky.  As soon as I was spotted I was told No!  Can’t take photos of people gambling.  Don’t want to incriminate anyone.  No worries.  I managed to get off a few shots inside to no ones harm.

It was fun exploring the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Vegas.  It’s fairly new, lush, exotic.  What else would it be.  It’s Las Vegas.  Here, I thought I’d put my camera to the test in trying to capture both scenes presented in one shot, outside and inside at night, when glass glare is at it’s finest.  Just the opportunity to look around the hotel was good enough for me.

I was wandering around at night, taking in the sights and color and had just watched the fireworks go off in the pools here at the Mirage.  I waited for all the people to scatter and then noticed the falls.  Nature’s imitation ala Las Vegas.  Nothing like it.

This is where I stayed; the Flamingo Hotel on the Strip.  A cheap and convenient place right in the middle of the art museum action known as the Las Vegas Strip.  I drove over from Death Valley, the complete opposite of everything that Vegas is about.  But, truth be known, I really like Las Vegas.  It’s so visual.  There’s always something that captures the eye.  It made for a very diverse and thoroughly enjoyable week of wandering around the west.

Of course you know I love color.  The richer the better.  When I walked into the Wynn hotel in Las Vegas I felt like a kid in a candy store!  I mean glitz and glitter and glamour and color everywhere my eyes could roam.  I just stood close to the entry door, set my tripod and camera and tried to stay away from anyone official who might notice and tell me that no tripods are allowed.  (I did get that at the Venetian).  Well, no problem!  Vegas seems to have so much substance for a place known for being so shallow.  A cover up?  Or just someplace where the business makes so much money they can afford the enticements?  I don’t gamble, but I do love the enticements. wynn-entry-2-1

I was doing my best to get to Las Vegas as quickly as possible.  It’s just not so easy to do when I’m out-and-about, wandering, exploring, enjoying each and every little cubby hole of environment that I move through.  There’s always so much to see and explore.  I almost never get bored with where I find myself to be when I’m out with camera in hand.  If it starts to become work, I just pack up and move on, do something else, get another perspective.

Here, I was almost there, to the amazing Las Vegas where everything becomes another great photo op.  But…. I just had to stop here at Red Rocks Canyon just a few short miles west of Vegas.  Even though it was quite cloudy I took some time to wander around and take in the beauty before heading into the city and something completely different.

There really isn’t anywhere you can go in Las Vegas that doesn’t present itself with some kind of interesting image.  Outside, inside, day, night.  Doesn’t matter.  Art, color, people, glitz, it’s all there.  Every building, every casino has something unique and different.  Heck, who has time for gaming when there’s so much to see?  Maybe you do.  I’ll save my money and watch the show.  Here, I was just wandering around the Bellagio, taking in the sights. bellagio-hallway-3-1

For those of you who are familiar with Las Vegas, what is it you like the most?  Being inside one of those huge casinos with all the noise and action, being entertained by one of the many professional acts, or being outside at night just taking in the whole of it?  Of course, it’s impossible to really pin it down to one.  Vegas is usually about taking in everything it has to offer.  But I do love wandering around outside at night, the quirkiness of the different architectural themes, the color, and the variety of people combining for a different kind of entertainment than is found on the inside.
