Venetian reflections

I really enjoy Las Vegas, but not for the obvious reasons.  I am sort of like the anti-tourist: I go to bed early, get up early, and wander the streets alone.  It’s a whole different Vegas that way...and frankly, a better one in my opinion.  

Just to be clear, I’m not a teetotaler.  I enjoy a nice glass of wine, or a fine cold beer.  I just don’t care to do the party scene in Vegas.  It’s not my thing.  I would rather get some rest so I can get up and shoot.  In other words, photography is a bigger passion.  That’s a good thing, right?  :-)

Oh yeah - I took this shot one morning while wandering there.  This is from the lagoon in front of The Venetian.  If you get to Las Vegas, be sure and see this place, camera or not.  It’s fabulous.

Shopping at The Venetian

Ahhh...The Venetian.  What an incredible hotel.  If you ever get to Las Vegas, be sure and stop by here and check this place out.  It is beautiful, and very accessible.  One cool part of the hotel complex is this section, where they have re-created an imagined Venetian scene, complete with stores, cobblestone paths, and this canal where you can catch a gondola ride.  It’s not Italy, but it’s a pretty good imitation of it!

I recently created a new list here, which is “Top Photo Spots in Las Vegas”.  You can click here to check it out - The Venetian is on it a couple of times!

Venetian morning

Just a post and run today - I grabbed this HDR one morning in Las Vegas, NV.  I was up and out early and had the place to myself.  It is a weird thing to feel like you are by yourself in a place like Las Vegas!
