I chose the medium of photography as a tool to capture the essence of the person or place. I create images to depict the subject as they are remembered in the mind. Not posed or unnatural, but as a window into the intimate world of the subject.” Jill Brown is a member of Professional Photographers of America.

Vegas Baby!

Last weekend, my handsome husband and I went to Las Vegas.  This was my very first time going and oh boy was I in for a treat!  So I know people say it all the time... but it really is a 24-hour adult fun park!  We had a wonderful time... gambled a little (lost some), ate great food, saw the Titanic exhibit, watched the fountains, shopped... FUN!  It is certainly not a place to go to relax, but it is OH so much FUN!


I documented our trip with my iPhone.  Here are some of my favorite images taken and edited on my iPhone of our trip!


The first night we were there we went down to the old part of Vegas.  Here is the Fremont Casino.


...and here is Pioneer.


This is a view from our hotel room at Harrah's of Carnival Court.


This is at the newest casino: The Cosmopolitan.  It has a chandelier that cascades down several floors!


Dave and I on the plane headed back home.  :)

Here's a view of what I think is part of the Rockies from the plane.  A little while later we saw the snow-capped mountains, but this was actually my favorite shot.

This sounds like the vacation for me. I can only relax for so long. At the end of our Hawaii trip I was totally over relaxing.
