Neon Vegas Nights

How can one visit Vegas without photographing the excess Neon lights and other aspects of the night...

Glitter Gulch... what a great name.

Looking south on the Strip, from the top of the Eiffel Tower.

The fountains at the Bellagio, from above.

The fountains at the Bellagio, street level. I shot this out the passenger window, while driving down the strip (although the car was really just inching along the congested traffic jam).

Taken inside the elevator at our hotel, the MGM Grand. I don't know what it is about this shot, but I love it. Probably one of my favourites from this entire trip.

The not so nice area by the historic downtown. It was nothing empty parking lots, boarded up stores, and bail bondsmen offices.

We ate a meal inside here cause we were starving. It was terrible.

Another older casino in the historic downtown.


  1. I really like the photos of the less wll known, somewhat forgotten casinos. They have a kind of glitzy, trashy, old quality. I want to know "who gambles there?"

  2. I agree, the older, off the strip casinos have a lot more character than the mega casino resorts on the strip. And the people inside them look much less touristy than those in the likes of the Venetian and the Wynn. I'm not sure that that's such a good thing though, as it might imply they are regular gamblers...
