We were able to spend a couple of extra days sightseeing in the Las Vegas area before getting down to business at the conference; a trip out to Red Rock Canyon provided so many photo ops and color inspirations!
A huge dust storm cancelled our trip to the Neon Boneyard Museum, but I'll get another chance next year as the conference will be held at the same place, same time....
|Wonderful angles and colors, from the tram on the Strip|
Spending time walking on the famous Las Vegas Strip and through huge hotels yielded more inspiration for colors and shapes....

Almost "other-worldly"....nothing is quite what it seems....
|The Venetian Hotel, complete with canals and singing Gondoliers (this is inside the hotel! The "sky" is the painted ceiling....)|
|Domed ceiling in the Venetian (I think?)|
|In the Gardens....flowers everywhere!|
|The "Girls" in the Gardens.....|
More flowers, in wild and beautiful combinations:
We ended the day with dinner and a show: "O", by Cirque de Soleil.....most incredible! Sorry no pictures of that, but here is one from the cab ride home....
|The famous Chihuly Ceiling in the Bellagio|
|The Eiffel Tower and Ceasar's Palace....|
Here are a couple of last images, maybe a bit more restful to the eyes....I'm thinking about using these colors in a new project, so stay tuned....
