Las Vegas Nevada August, September 2010 and January 2011

UPDATE 2: 4×5 Ortho film.  It took a long time to get these, but they are film shots mid day in the hot sun.  Tray developed by hand, scanned and edited on the computer.  Enjoy.

UPDATE: Check out the new black and white film shots. They are near the end of the gallery on this post.  Oh how I miss film.

Well, the blog is long overdue for an update.  Here we are in January… a new year!

A lot has happened since the last update.  If you read the title, I was in Las Vegas several times.  I also spent most of November and the early part of December in the Twin cities helping my friend hang Christmas lights for his business.  While I was down there my laptop got stolen out of his house.  I lost some photos, some music, some money, and most of all some of my personal files.  I haven’t heard anything on the recovery of it, and I doubt that I will see it again.  The latter part of December I spent saving up for and purchasing a new computer and getting what I had backed up in order again.  You don’t realize how much you have lost until it is gone.  Make sure you make a backup.  There weren’t any travels out of the state until late January…. right where we are now.

Las Vegas multiple times.  I am not a huge fan of the city itself, so I am glad that we got to head out as well.

August Vegas – The Strip and Freemont Street Experience.  Since I was in Vegas I had to see the Vegas sights.  We walked the Strip, saw the casinos, and saw the Bellagio fountain.  We also went to “old Vegas” and saw the Freemont Street Experience.

September Vegas – Mount Charleston.  About an hour west of Las Vegas is Mount Charleston.  We drove up the hill to about 7500 feet.  The view was great, and the weather was nice (for someone coming from Minnesota.)  There were pine trees and even a ski hill that gets used during the winter.  On the way down, there was an amazing sunset.

January Vegas – Pinball Hall of Fame and Valley of Fire. The Pinball Hall of Fame is a great place to visit if you like pinball.  There are games that were built starting in the 50s and games from today.  Games start at a quarter and go up to $1.00 per game.  You could spend a few hours there.  The Valley of Fire State Park is about 50 miles northeast of Vegas.  Looking at the photos below gives you an idea of what was there.  Nice place to visit.
