Las Vegas 2013

Travelling on business sometimes provides more opportunity for photo taking than travelling for pleasure. This summer, I had to spend a week in Las Vegas at a conference representing my company and managed to slip out in the evenings for long walks up and down Las Vegas Boulevard.

No matter what you feel about the morality of Vegas and its gambling obsession, you cannot deny that it’s a place full of color and motion. Not to mention the odd juxtaposition of wedding chapels, liquor ads and gun clubs.

Here are some pictures that convey the action, the color and the irony of Las Vegas:

    Great pictures! A few years ago, I went with my husband while he worked a trade show. I ended up spending an entire week at the Palazzo, most of it by myself. I spent a lot of time just wandering around the strip, taking pictures and soaking it all in. It really enjoyed Vegas without having to be in vacation mode.
