Las Vegas: In Photos
Warning: These photos may spontaneously disappear in 2 weeks. I just signed up for a 2 week trial of Smugmug & started moving my photos from my hard drive to the internet (don't worry, I also backed them up on my external). If I decide I don't like Smugmug in 2 weeks, these photo will probably vanish. Consider yourself warned & enjoy 'em while they last! All of these photos are SOOC (straight out of the camera)! (Sorry, I don't have time nor the patience to edit right now!)

I'm most excited about these shots: the Chinese New Year display in the Bellagio. The colors were phenomenal.
Speaking of the Bellagio, here she is in all her glory.
Did I mention the view out of my room was phenomenal?
Fortunately for you, unfortunately for me, I was up with the sunrise every morning for work.
I did venture outside the walls of Bellagio to see some other hotels. First stop: Aria.
Next: the Monte Carlo.
Guess where I went next? (Hint.. NY NY!)
My last stop was by far my favorite: Paris.
I think the ceiling is what "made" Paris for me. I'm not a big casino fan as they are dark, noisy & smoky, but Paris had an airy feel to it (go figure):
I also saw Caesar's, MGM, & the Cosmopolitan, but I didn't have my camera with me on those stops. Next time in Vegas, I'm going to put the Venetian and the Wynn on my list! Here a few final looks at Vegas from my self-guided walking tour:
I thought it'd only be appropriate to end with a "big finish" a la the Bellagio fountains!
