    Those are some badass pictures. I drove to Vegas when I lived in Phoenix in 06... amazing. I wish I was into photography the way I'm into it now. :hs:

    60 bucks for a 2min ride. I just stuck teh camera out the window and kept snapping pics and looking where it was taking pics and adjusting. The window is down near your thigh so its kinda hard.

    Was using my 5d with a 28-135mm

    Was gambling so much I didn't have time to take pics out on the strip but next time I go I will, had some nice cars as well. Lost alot of money and won alot of money but I broke even and basically spent nothing. Everything was comped so. Hopefully next time the casino will pay for airfare.

    not sure they said it was a dry spell and has been that way recently. I remember when I went there when I was 21, 8 years ago and the water level was where the white lines are.

    :bowdown: Vegas is amazing. All my pics from my trip a couple months ago were from the strip. Didn't get a chance to get to the hoover damn, sadly.
