VENICE IN NEVADA

First of all I want to thank all of you for your kind words of welcome and encouragement.
Las Vegas really is a fascinating place and I had a lot of fun photographing it.

This scene is one of the grand hallways at the Venetian Hotel.

As with all my pictures, please click on it to enlarge.

Wow, photow- this sure is a different view of what I think of as the ultimate tourist trap of the US! Really nice b & w--has a nice quiet feel to it. Hope you're rested from your trip. Have a great Thanksgiving--are you cooking??

That is an impressive hallway. Great tones in the black and white.

I've never been to Vegas. Will be nice to see it through your eyes.

Enlarged version with white background looks very nice.
I would r=frame this with off white matt (could be double matting).

Very nice photograph... Looks like a very expensive place... The type of place that expects you to wear a shirt and shoes -- no doubt...

Thanks to all of you for the warm welcomes.
Chad..I will probably look into framing this.
Ben..thanks for the suggestions on matting the pic.
Photoaday...you're right, it is expensive. Glad the company was footing the bill and casual was okay but I'm sure shirtless would be frowned upon. Its really not that snobby.
