Thread: Sin City

  1. #1

    Default Sin City

    Hi All
    I just got married last week and my beautiful wife and I went to Las Vegas for our Honeymoon. I just wanted to share a few photos from out trip. Had a great time.
    We stayed at the Stratosphere Hotel. They have a tower there with rides and restaurant on the top. It is the tallest structure there. Here we are on the top observation platform. If you haven't been to Vegas before save up your money and take a trip it's great fun! See you there.

    Congratulations to you both Bruce!

    On my travels your side of the water I have never been to 'Vegas, as usually was business that took me over.

    Once I use to rock-climb - now I can get dizzy standing on a step ladder - you wouldn't get me on those rides either!!

    Hope you had a wonderful time

    Congradulations Bruce. Looks like your bride was the best looking thing in the pictures.

    I wouldn't have gone on those rides either... It would've scared the tar out of this old guy.

    Nice shots BTW... Some of those shots are not the easiest to take either. What did you use to take the shots?

    Thank you very much, Steve and John.
    Yep, I got dizzy just looking over the side of that tower. I would have never made it on the rides.
    My wife was definitely the best looking one in the photos.
    We are not photographers , just point and click! These were all taken on Kodak EasyShare C613, 6 megapixel digital camera. Not bad for a couple of amateurs.

    Congratulations on the wedding to you and your lovely bride Bruce.

    And ...... I don't do rides either ..... Much too attached to my food (Nor am I too good with heights).

    Thank you Keith and Bill .
    If anyone is interested, I took 2 of the files of the strip at night and made desktop wallpaper files. The original files were much bigger. Of course they were edited with Xara Xtreme.
    You can get the wallpaper files here.
