Reflections in glass in the Aria (before I was escorted out) "Textures and Light"

I have been really excited about going back to City Center. I remembered a restraunt in the Mandirin Hotel when I was there at Christman that had this amazing wall of textures. I wanted to come back some time and shoot it. I could have used all 10 of this weeks images from here. It was amazing.

"Disco Lights" well not really reflections from the slot machines in Aria. (before I got escorted out)

CSN Habitat

I had an enjoyable shoot this week. Henderson is a mixture of old really old (at least by Las Vegas standards) homes and businesses. We started out at the Rainbow Club Casino for breakfast. Good food cheap prices. I am finally starting to realize about layering in these documentary photographs how to make images not look flat and one dimentional. Forground middleground and background. Except for a few dog incidents everything went relatively smooth. " Platinum Suites" Really! Platinum?

Redneck Lock
" Shopping Cart Graveyard"

"Wash Day" I remember having to do this. I didn't like it at the time but I think I wouldn't mind doing it again. I remember your clothes had such a wonderful fresh smell to them.
" Watering the Grass" Not much grass in this yard only where the laundry hangs.
" Locked Down" The chairs and the table on Water street were all locked together
" Hot Water" well maybe 10 years ago
"Home is where you lay your head"
"Crystal Cleaners and Laundry"
"Cracked" This is my favorite of all of the images. It just all worked for me.

"Waiting" 1 A Assignment:China Town : "Waiting" 1 Not just China Town proper but surrounding areas as well. I started out by going to China Town on Spring Mt in the evening after my nephew's Eagle Scout Court of Honor. These were the best shops from that Tues. Night shoot. I am not sure technically which is the better image. This little old lady was either waiting for a ride or was just to tired to stand. They are called "Waiting" After this shoot I think I know what my final assignment will be. But who knows it has changed 3 times already . "Waiting" 2 "Tree Tops" "The Cutting Edge" "Grafiti Between the Lines" "Receiving" "Paint on Steroids" "Leading Lines"Thanks Heather for this one! "Car Wash" "China Town"
