Viva Las Vegas

What Happens In Vegas Is A Lot Of Fun!

I spent three weeks in Las Vegas mostly having fun creating slide shows. I did one on Hoover Dam with the new bypass bridge. I took Pictures of the bridge while on it.....

....from it.....

....and of it from Hoover Dam.

I also took the Hoover Dam tour which covered again all the places that the tour went before 9-11. One of the places in Las Vegas that I enjoyed seeing was the Neon Boneyard.

This is a museum that has a large collection of old sings from extinct casinos and business in Las Vegas. The museum has restored about 15 or so signs to working order and has them displayed on the city streets and inside the Fremont Experience. It was like a treasure hunt to locate them. I photographed them for the slide show. Some of them I photographed in daylight and at night. Here are a few of the signs in the yard:

Here are a few signs from the Fremont Experience area:

I stopped in to pay a visit to the Pawn Star's Establishment.

Of course no visit to Las Vegas would be compete without a date with a showgirl.

I think we will just let that part Stay In Vegas!

  1. As an encouraging mum, if I can say so myself, I had a nice time recently with my two kids to decorate their room in our new house that we just moved into. There were lots of the children's art work, made at home and school, that we happily put on the wall.
    Then we spent time together sitting in front of the iMac and looked through the big collection of digital images that had for their customers to select from and have printed as canvas prints. The kids together chose this painting for their room, Ivan Horse by Edmund Dulac,, that we ordered online to have delivered to our new house.
