On a flight between Chicago and Los Angeles, I snapped a picture of a brightly lit city outside my window. I didn't realize until a few months later that it was Las Vegas

My write up on photographing the new Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas here

 

On the weekend of November 20-21, 2010, I was invited to photograph the new Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas prior to their opening December 15, 2010 in Las Vegas NV.

 

This set of images represents my efforts that weekend to showcase this newest resort property opening up on the Las Vegas Strip. Thanks to David Scherer from The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas for showing me around, to Miiko Mentz at Katalyst Films for helping to arrange the shoot, and to my wife for modeling for me.

A 3 second exposure of the Vegas Strip taken from the top of the Rio Hotel. With wind gusts of over 40 mph and no tripod, I did all I could to brace the camera steady.

Lightly smoked mackerel marinated in old fashioned mustard, baby vegetables with yuzu--I decided to post this shot here since it was my most beautifully presented course. This came after the caviar (see below).

 

We topped off our last night in Las Vegas at the only Michelin 3-star restaurant there. Not sure how many of you are foodies, but in case you weren't aware, this is the only Joël Robuchon flagship restaurant in the U.S. There isn't even one in Paris. The other 2 are in Macau and Tokyo. If you're interested, here are a few links to learn more about this remarkable chef and restaurant.

This was easily one of the best dining experiences of our life. I'm afraid these mere snapshots don't do any justice to the experience. As usual, the light was very dim and I had to shoot at high ISO's the entire time.

 

I'm having a busy week so I'm afraid I've been remiss in visiting your streams. I just wanted to unload all the remaining Vegas photos to prepare for new ones. ;-) By Sunday I should be able to catch up.

 

This Rainforest Cafe is located at the MGM Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

It's always nice to visit another of these awesome restaurants, but it's nearly identical to every other Rainforest Cafe that I've already been to. I'd really like to see some touches added that are unique to each restaurant. It would give the fans much more of an incentive to visit each place.

Las Vegas is the most populous city in the U.S. state of Nevada and is also the county seat of Clark County, Nevada. Las Vegas is an internationally renowned major resort city for gambling, shopping, and fine dining. The city bills itself as The Entertainment Capital of the World, and is famous for its casino resorts and associated entertainment. A growing retirement and family city, Las Vegas is the 28th-most populous city in the United States, with an estimated population by the U.S. Census Bureau of 583,756 as of 2010. The 2010 population estimate of the Las Vegas metropolitan area was 1,951,269.

Established in 1905, Las Vegas officially became a city in 1911. At the close of the 20th century, Las Vegas was the most populous American city founded in that century (a distinction held by Chicago in the 19th century). The city's tolerance for various forms of adult entertainment earned it the title of Sin City, and this image has made Las Vegas a popular setting for films and television programs. There are numerous outdoor lighting displays on Fremont Street, as well as elsewhere in the city.

The name Las Vegas is often applied to unincorporated areas that surround the city, especially the resort areas on and near the Las Vegas Strip. The 4.2 mi (6.8 km) stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard known as the Strip is mainly in the unincorporated communities of Paradise, Winchester, and Enterprise.

No piece of cake to shoot in such darkness but I think I managed.

 

This is a piece of "complimentary" birthday cake that was given to my husband at the flagship Joël Robuchon, Las Vegas. It was a small, beautiful white cake with layers of something, something, marshmallow, something, and mango coulis.

New York-New York Hotel & Casino is a hotel and casino located on the Las Vegas Strip at 3790 Las Vegas Boulevard South, in Paradise, Nevada. It is owned and operated by MGM Resorts International.

New York-New York uses the New York City influence of its name in several ways. Its architecture is meant to evoke the New York City skyline; the hotel includes several towers configured to resemble New York City towers such as the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building.[4] In front of the property is a lake representing New York Harbor, with a 150-foot-tall (46 m) replica of the Statue of Liberty, and replicas of the Soldiers and Sailors Monument, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Main Immigration Building on Ellis Island, and Grand Central Terminal.

Within the resort, particular gambling areas, lounges, restaurants, and meeting rooms are named after New York City neighborhoods or landmarks. The main casino area, for example, is named after Central Park, while the shops are modeled after Greenwich Village.

The resort is located on the northwest corner of the Tropicana - Las Vegas Boulevard intersection. At street level, pedestrians are blocked from crossing by concrete barriers. Instead, New York-New York is linked by overhead pedestrian bridges to its neighboring casinos to the south (the Excalibur, across Tropicana Avenue) and to the east (the MGM Grand, across the Strip).

| Website | Twitter | Instagram Early morning on the Las Vegas Boulevard. This is the Southbound side looking North toward the Mirage. I was set up on a little traffic island but still didn't want to spend too much time there as motorist were just inches from me half awake driving to work.

The Las Vegas skyline shot from a location you won't see too many shots of. Taken just after sunset from the area of Sloan, NV. I have some tigher shots and some wider shots but I like this one. The purple hue and the slight visibility of the mountains in the background add to the photo.

 

EXPLORE-d. Thanks to everybody who has fav-ed, commented, tagged and viewed! (Thanks to Aftab for giving me this wonderful news!)

 

In my dream, it’s mile after mile, vast, open……. nobody stops me, nobody, nothing……the wind, the rain, the lightning……nothing, nothing……I don’t want to open my eyes anymore, anymore, anymore………

 

Whatever big it is ......iron or cement or glass......a cage is a cage, a cage, a cage.....

MGM Grand Hotel Lion Habitat, Las Vegas

 

View On Black

View from the footbridge between the Excalibur and Tropicana hotels in Las Vegas.

Atlas is a Titan giant who was condemned to support the heavens on his shoulders for rebelling against the gods. There are eleven bronze-finished fiberglass statues that complement the lion outside the MGM Grand. The winged figures of Atlas-like men holding 16-foot diameter bowls are about twice life- size, 10 feet tall in their kneeling position. Each of them houses brilliant light beams that project skyward.

A closer look

 

One from the archives - picture taken during my trip to Las Vegas last Christmas. This huge lion statue can be found in front of the MGM Grand casino. I wanna go back to Vegas, right now :(

 

Except for increased saturation and the bordering, the picture is SOOC.

I liked the perspective on this one. Comments are welcome but critics are appreciated.
