I recently went on a short weekend vacation in Las Vegas, and while I was there I took a few photos for you to enjoy. Here are the ones that came out best, the highlights as I’d like to call them. You can download high resolution versions from Flickr, if you like.
The Mirage casino, advertising the Cirque du Soleil “The Beatles Love” show.
Circus Circus’ high flying trapeze act, visible from the gaming floor!
The Ibis was spotted at the Flamingo, trying hard to blend in.
The Flamingo, as seen reflected off the inner courtyard, which has very shiny windows.
My girlfriend, Wendy, got the 007 reference and made the appropriate and cute action for this shot of Casino Royale!
Wendy and her mother posing in front of a shopping center fountain.
A beautiful sculpture/fountain at Caesar’s Palace.
High-voltage power lines fanning out from Hoover Dam.
Las Vegas isn’t France, but Paris Las Vegas has an Eiffel Tower replica.
A gaming table at Circus Circus.
Wendy’s Uncle and I at the Flamingo courtyard.
Some Joshua Tree near the Grand Canyon.
Hoover Dam and Lake Meade; it’s amazing how far the water level has fallen (the white marks) since it was created.
Wendy at the Grand Canyon west rim.
We went on the skywalk here, an interesting experience given that I’m terrified of heights–but Wendy loved it.
