Las Vegas in Black and White

First I want to thank everyone that commented on my last post. It really means a lot to me and I appreciate your support! Blogger used to email me all the comments so I could respond to them via email but now only about half the comments come to my inbox.

I've been going through my photos I took last year around the Las Vegas area and thought I would share. The desert landscape, canyons, lakes and such look so beautiful in black and white.


Around Red Rock Canyon

The Lake Mead/Hoover Dam area.

Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health - designed by Frank Gehry


Even the colorful Las Vegas Strip looks great in black and white. 


And for a little color,  a palm tree from my grandmother's neighborhood.

Seeing all these spectacular photos in B&W is a real pleasure. It takes me back to yesteryear. LOVED them all. The rock formations just reached out to bring you in. The Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health was very interesting, though. Had never heard of it. Just a fascinating shot. Take care.
