Las Vegas Neon Rainbow

Las Vegas is a very interesting town. The 24-hour entertainment offered by the casinos can cause you to lose track of time (and sometimes, your money :-) ). Pam and I have been to Vegas a number of times and really enjoy it as long as we don't spend more than a couple of days there.  More than that and we start to go into sensory overload. When we were there a few weeks ago while going back and forth between Death Valley and Zion I took some time to wander around Downtown with the camera. This was the 1st time I had taken "serious" photographs in Vegas so I was interested to see what I could come up with. This picture is a close-up of the rainbow neon sign at Fitzgerald's Hotel/Casino, a Downtown classic. For those of you who haven't been to Downtown Las Vegas, the Fitzgerald's sign on Fremont Street is a large rainbow ending in a pot of gold. The entire sign is very colorful but I decided to focus on just the rainbow part to see what I could do with it. The result is below:

 What I liked about the image is the bright colors and repeating pattern. I tried to compose the picture in the camera, instead of cropping and I think I got it pretty good.

Vegas is a fun town for photographers. I shot quite a few images while in Vegas and I'll probably post some of them here over the coming weeks/months.

Have any of you taken some interesting photographs in Las Vegas? If so, feel free to post a link to them in the comments. I'd like to see them.

Happy shooting!
