    It was originally supposed to be 4 45 foot brushes at the entrances to the Arts District. It was scaled back to 2 opposing brushes on Charleston....and then 2 brushes in different locations because of an installation problem. They were supposed to throw a beam of light 2000 feet into the night sky. They were never really finished after artist Dennis Oppenheim died in 2011.

    Yer gettin' 2 fer 1 this morning! :)

    To make a long story long ...

    I'm always looking for vantage points for Strip night shots. A few trips back on the way back from driving around Lake Mead, I saw (during the daytime) what looked to be a promising view from the rough area of Lake Mead Drive (or is it Lake Mead Boulevard? Avenue? Parkway?) just east of Boulder Highway in Henderson.

    A few weeks ago I had an unplanned business trip to LV at short notice, and since I would have a car, I packed one of the digitals in case I could do one or more photo walks or drives.

    Well, the stars aligned, and I had a free evening before that gawd-awful early morning flight back. I did not want to drink, since I had to be up at 0-dark-thirty to get ready to leave, so I figured I would try to find that killer shot.

    The place that looked promising before (parking lot) had a fence on the Strip view side, which looked impossible to shoot through, so I drove around a bit and found a kind of creepy dead end road with a good view of the Strip.

    These were hand-held, auto exposure. If I'm feeling lucky I may go back with a tripod and re-shoot from this spot. I was alone and did not really feel warm and fuzzy there, so I did not linger. I could have nailed these much better if I could have played with the exposure and had a better support than me just leaning back against the car. I just wanted to get the shots and get outa there!

    I may go back and re-shoot these with a tripod and/or a bodyguard. :)

    The first one is the best, technically, from the set. Joker's Wild is dead center and the (don't call it Ferris) wheel is clearly visible as is The STRAT tower. If you squint, you can make out a plane just taking off to the east from McCarran. (Yes, I know, they don't usually take off that way, but they did that night.)

    The second one has the better view, in my not so humble opinion, but it shows too much camera shake for my comfort. :( Another plane is taking off, and the too-slow shutter via auto-exposure shows lotsa motion blur. You can also make out one of the reflector signs off the side of the side road.

    Anyway, these are good enough for the Interwebs, I guess, but not good enough for hanging, at least from this shoot.

    Enjoy! :)

    Thanks.

    I'll take it in the spirit it's intended, but as I said, these are not the best examples of my photography. They do show that I had a good vantage point and that it's worth it to go shoot more from that spot with a good tripod and perhaps at least one other individual.
