Well we have taken a quick two night trip up to Las Vegas not only to photograph what is not only the most recent hotel and casino, but probably the last new hotel on the Strip for many years to come – The Cosmopolitan. I not only wanted photos of the Cosmopolitan, but also wanted to take advantage of their amazing balcony views!
We are in one of the smallest rooms – it is still over half the size of our home! Maybe that is more of a reflection of our home, but the place is nice. We are here during one of the less expensive times – not only to save a bit of money, but to avoid the crowds. Even at that, this place is still really hopping – seems to be the place to hang out these days. Can’t imagine what the weekends are like. I do know at times this room almost costs as much as our monthly house payment!
So, we are really here for the view and I’m doing everything I can to take advantage. I have been shooting 3D and regular video and time-lapses, plus a wide range of stills including panoramics and HDR. I worked late in to the night last night so that tonight after sunset we might be able to enjoy the property a bit.
