with 'las vegas' tag

almost a fairy tale

kady looking out from the balcony this weekend, my cousin got married at the venetian in las vegas. the reception dinner afterwards was at canaletto. we were in a private room upstairs, and some of the younger cousins (and others) spent time on the balcony looking out over the shopping and restaurants below.

most of the shots with people are currently set to be visible only to family. (i went ahead and made this one public, since you can’t really identify her from the picture. i may make others public if the subjects say it is okay.)

i shot more than i should have without using a flash, just because i hate using a flash. i should get over that.

perhaps all the vegas hotel/casinos do this, but i was a little impressed to get a letter with a special offer from the new frontier hotel casino the other day (an atrium suite for $45 weekday, $69 weekends through january 27). of course, the graphic of someone shoveling snow isn’t exactly compelling to a southern california resident.

american casino is the discovery channel version of mark burnett’s the casino that ran on fox over the summer (which burnett, who produces survivor, called his worst show ever. it’s interesting to see how another team does with a very similar concept.
