I go to Las Vegas about once a year or so. Usually I don’t bother taking pictures. Vegas has been photographed so much that I figure that there isn’t anything new to say. Also, I was actually a little nervous about taking pictures with all the security in the casinos. This year, I decided to try my hand and snap some shots. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed making photographs in the casinos and out. Security was pretty relaxed and people were pretty cool with the camera being waved about.
Even though Vegas is known for garish colors, black and white is what worked best for me. The lights and colors distract from the reality of Las Vegas. There are more stories to tell and pictures to make. Next year, I will take more pictures, definitely.
