My Week Away

I spent the week at a conference at in Las Vegas. With so much to do and see, I had a hard time deciding what to photograph first. It’s a lot to carry but I had my 1D Mark III with me every night.

In the lobby of the Bellagio Hotel, the first thing you’ll see are 2,000 spectacular, hand-blown glass flowers on the ceiling. The sculpture was created by world-renowned artist, Dale Chihuly. Here is one of the many shots I took.

Another great spot is the Paris hotel with its version of the Eiffel tower. The tower is an exact replica of the original but rendered at 1/2 scale. The tower can be seen for miles at night but I prefer this close-up I captured standing just under the tower.

Next stop is the Valley of Fire State Park; just outside of Vegas.
