Vintage Vegas: Photos of Hotels on the Las Vegas Strip.

By Posted in - Photography Posts & Travel Blog & U.S.A. on May 8th, 2010

Sin City as you’ve never seen it!

A month or so ago we spent a few days in Las Vegas with Randy’s family. We had a great time and I took a ton of photos of hotels on the Las Vegas Strip. I wanted to capture something a little different than the typical photos of Las Vegas hotels and I discovered a new technique that fit perfectly with the vibe I was trying to get. Here are some pictures from the trip that I absolutely love! If you’ve been to Vegas some of the places might look familiar to you. I hope you like them as much as I do – Enjoy!

    The technique was very simple. An old lens filter I found that I had to hand hold over the camera – that’s why it looks a little different every time. If I see something old, cheap at a camera store or somewhere else that looks like it could work I grab it. 🙂

    Glad you like the last one Candice! I love that one too but almost didn’t put it in because it doesn’t entirely match so I’m glad you dig it!

    I like the last one, the one of Circus Circus and of TI. I love the juxtaposition with the gondolier. I think the signs are what make Vegas a bit more “vintage.” It would have been cool to see more of Freemont, which is where I think all of that is but still fun essay to look at! The strip is so long. We never made it down to Mandalay Bay and had to take two separate days to walk the south and the north part of the strip.

      I like that one too. I was having fun playing around with these photos when I took them. The strip is huge & exhausting. None of the photos here are from Freemont St though. I’ve been really wanting to go back to Vegas lately! @Natalie T.,
