Fountains of Bellagio – Las Vegas

Fountains of Bellagio - Las Vegas

This shot of the Bellagio fountains in Las Vegas was taken in May of 2012. Even though summer had yet to begin, the heat of the dessert was something I had never experienced before. I found a spot in the shade around the walkway that surrounds the fountain and within a few minutes, the fountains begun their show.

This shot is from the Bellagio side of the man-made lake in front of the casino resort, so what you see in the image is a view of the Las Vegas Strip beyond the water. The fish-eye lens on my camera lets you see the entirety of the massive fountains, but I chose a picture without the monstrous heights that the water climbs to because I felt the water shooting out to where I was standing added a bit more depth to the composition.

Anyways, hope you enjoy it!

Vehicles – Paris

For the first 7 days of each month, I like to do a photo-essay with a theme picked by my audience. This month, it will be vehicles. Categorized by city in alphabetical order, Paris is the setting for day 5! The topic for the photo is the traffic again, but this time, the vehicles are moving in a round-about, which was one of the most scary experiences the first time I was in a taxi-cab in that environment. You’ll notice there’s no street paint / lines to indicate where each vehicle should be… It’s feels like utter chaos, synchronized. In the background, you’ll notice a famous monument erected by Napolean, the Arc de Triomphe. The overcast weather made for a beautiful sky to contrast the busy street.

Vehicles – Paris

For the first 7 days of each month, I like to do a photo-essay with a theme picked by my audience. This month, it will be vehicles. Categorized by city in alphabetical order, For today, I bring the first of two photos shot in Paris back in March of 2007. Paris is a city crammed, and I mean crammmmmed, with vehicles. Cars, trucks, bikes, scooters, motorcycles, and even water transportation along rivers and canals.
