Of Canoes and Casinos

If asked what would make an ideal monument in the middle of a state-of-the-art casino and entertainment complex I'm quite sure most would immediately think of the same thing...


Many canoes.

Bright, colorful, arranged in a big fireball of boating just begging to be portage'd across Las Vegas.  And so we have such a thing at The Aria.

Only in Vegas does this make sense.

The Aria

Wow.  This place has become stagnant.  Too little time to create.  Just back from a whirlwind three days in Vegas (8-10 days Vegas Time) and still trying to get my bearings.  One of the sites I was looking forward to seeing was the new City Center, located in the heart of the strip between Bellagio and the Monte Carlo.  It is an absolute marvel of modern architecture and a complete playground for a photographer.  I have many abstract views that I need to sort through but wanted to do at least one.

This is the Aria Resort & Casino.  Great place, lots of fun with excellent food, shops, beverage establishments and so forth.  Slick, cool, and ultra-modern.
