The Luxor Hotel and Casino where we spent our first 3 nights in Las Vegas. Certainly a noticeable hotel with a prime location at the end of the strip the Luxor has a pyramid design with an iconic bright light that shoots directly up into the sky at night from the top. I had wanted to try and capture a shot of this in the dark but with limited time available over the 3 nights I never managed to bag one. This shot was taken one morning before we set out up the strip. I dashed out in the morning with the tripod and set up the shot favouring this angle. snapped 3 exposures before moving on to the Mandalay Bay (Photo to follow). One of the best thing I found about Vegas was the diversity in the design of the different hotels, each so individual and all so photogenic. I'd certainly recommend staying at the Luxor if you Visit Las Vegas whilst the décor is now a bit dated the rooms are reasonably priced and appeared recently refurbished.
I love looking back on these shots from 2010, and I'm still stumbling across the odd one or 2 that need processing :). I'm looking forward to this years trip though, Barcelona with the boys. A skating / photography trip for 7 days in April. Barcelona is one of those places I've always wanted to visit with its unique architecture and lively culture.
