Las Vegas!

On a recent weekend, my wife and I headed to Las Vegas with a few other couples. Everyone on the trip had been before, aside from myself, and I was astounded at the sheer volume of invented places -- made to be pleasing to the eye and inspire the further spending of money. I'd never experienced such luxury, and it took me a little time to stop asking why such things existed and just accept that they did. So, I took some pictures.

Waterfalls! They're everywhere! It gave me a lot of chances to practice blurring/sharpening the flow based on timing, but I'll just leave this here so that we don't have a post full of waterfalls.

One more won't hurt.

The Mirage! This is where we stayed. I had a beautiful view of the back of that weird dome.

The strip at night, taken from the dinner table.

First experience with Fried Chicken and Waffles at Hash House A Go-Go. Not the last.

Gondolas! Right in the middle of the mall shops within the Venetian! That's where I'll stay next time.

Anyway, we had a great time, and despite being a short weekend I was thoroughly introduced to the many things Vegas has to offer -- like not sleeping, and cover bands that are way too friendly. Fun!
