World Famous Chapel of the Bells Wedding, Las Vegas

    Newer Older

    A series of photos I took in the older district of Las Vegas. The Vegas of Yesteryear. Most of these hotels & motels are in various states of decay, and few are left open for business. They are tragic, kitschy, and lovely.

      Thanks! :) digicolleen knows this, but Vegas, esp. older Vegas, is filled to the brim with little wedding chapels, all of which say "World Famous" whether they are or not.

      I really bumped up the yellow in this photo to give it sort of a dingy feel. I'm happy with the results!
