Dry River

Most of the year our rivers look like this! It's amazing to see how quickly they come to life with a little rain. I enjoyed the rhythm of the sand midst the rocks.

Shooting Star?

I found this shot while on a quick hike yesterday. I love looking closely at things and discovering hidden beauty.

Nice Day for a Hike!

We actually recieved some rain last weekend! That means prime hiking! We went out to Red Rock Park and enjoyed the runoff! Beautiful cool day!

Round 2!

After being absent from the Las Vegas Daily Photo for awhile, with my wedding and life. I am once again going to attempt to document Las Vegas! But to be fair to readers.... I document the "natural side" of Vegas! I love the outdoor activities that can be found in and around Las Vegas! Yes, occasionally I make it down to the strip, but my primary goal is to show you the "pretty stuff" in Vegas! :)

Treasure Island

Last weekend I had the pleasure to go to a VIP pool party at the Treasure Island in celebration of All-In energy drinks debut. I had never been there before and I was impressed with the pool/surrounding areas given the little amount of space they had to use. I really enjoy night photography and amongst mingling with friends I took advantage of the opportunity. The pictures don't do the pool area justice. Its gorgeous! -Erinn ;)

To Fill, or to Unfill

Sometimes in this crazy town we find we have to run to a gas station to get drinks and fill up our cars- kind of standard stuff- I went to one this morning called "Fill" on Durango just south of the 215- I also had to "unfill" as they put it when I got inside- I thought it clever enough to post! The unfill rooms were really clean, too, and the fountain machine stocked with all sorts of drinks to refill!

Purple People

This artistic endeavor is one of the most amazing things I have seen in a while. It is located at the Wynn Las Vegas. Its a water wall with fiber optic lights that change color every few seconds. There are more than two statues who seem to be drawn to the wall, they are all walking towards it, almost as if they are in a trance. The reflection on the water is so captivating, you almost feel like one of the statues. The statues change color with the wall but they are different colors all at the same time. Its amazing. -Erinn ;)

Stargazer Lillie's

Stargazer Lillie's were the flower of choice throughout the 7 weddings in June I was invited to this year. 7 also seems to be the lucky number in Vegas, where as the chapels were overwhelmed on 07/07/07 for many marriages for those who wanted to get married on the lucky date. Hopefully things will work out for the best for all of them. -Erinn ;)

The Biggest Little City in the World

Once upon a time, movies such as The Women and The Misfits put Reno on the map as the divorce capitol of the world. In fact, in those days, the words “Reno Nevada vacation” were simply a euphemism for “getting a divorce.” The famous Reno divorce ranches provided a perfect setting for sensationalized divorce stories. Since most of the guests of these ranches were young women, there was never a shortage of ambitious men hanging around trying to help the poor gals pick up the pieces, so to speak. Nowadays, since liberalized divorce laws have destroyed Nevada’s divorce monopoly, the divorce ranches are long gone. However, Reno has been reinventing itself as a cultural center and host to some of the most exciting special events in North America. Today, the words “Reno Nevada vacation” imply all sorts of fun and excitement.

There are lots of activities to join in on such as hiking, skiing, snowboarding, ATV trails or you can grab an inner tube and float down the Truckee river that runs right through the middle of town.

When you decide to tour Reno Nevada, you will discover countless things to see and do. Virginia Street is the center for gambling and special events. Check out the famous Reno Arch, which was erected in 1926 in celebration of the completion of the Transcontinental Highway through Reno. The sign declares Reno as “The Biggest Little City in the World.” Reno also offers many cultural activities such “Reno Is Art Town” event in July. If you want to attend a Reno concert, ballet, art show, ballet performance or poetry reading, this is the place to go. The Pioneer Center for the Performing arts is another excellent venue for a Reno concert. The theatre is home to the Reno Philharmonic, the Nevada Festival Ballet and the Nevada Opera.

In August you can look forward to the "Hot August Nights" where classic cars from around the world come together to showcase their amazing vehicles. In the beginning of September you can also look forward to the "Rib Cook-Off" Which features several famous BBQ cookeries competing for the best ribs! Its delicious!

Before or after any performance, you can take a walk along the Truckee River Walk and watch the river as it flows from Lake Tahoe to Pyramid Lake. If you walk east towards downtown Reno, you pass the place where divorcees have thrown their wedding bands into the water.

I hope you enjoyed my commentary's as well as the information which was provided by the following website: http://www.destination360.com/north-america/us/nevada/reno.php I hope you enjoyed it-Erinn ;)

My favorite shot

I took this picture at the Wynn Las Vegas a few months ago. I almost walked right past it without giving it a second thought. Its just a couple walls after all. I just love the perspective. On a side note, Im moving to Reno in less than two weeks, so hopefully Christy, Wendi and Dave have taken some really cool pictures these last few months and will want to share. Because of my move I will post some pictures that I took while in Reno in a few days. I cant wait to get up there and take pictures of the Truckee River, Tahoe and the overall layout of the city! Take Care! -Erinn ;)

Evening Glow

Evening Glow. This event was the last of the main hot air balloon events. All the balloons lined up on main street and filled up. Apparently if there is no wind to disturb them they all light up in unison and follow the beat to songs played. Very entertaining. I hope everyone enjoyed the photos. Thus concludes the massive amount of hot air balloon picture, haha! -Erinn ;)

Shopping anyone?

Sorry for the delay in postings, June is a busy month! This picture was taken inside of the Wynn hotel and casino just outside one of the many shops there! The aesthetics of the store are really amazing. They have these tubes instead of walls, you can peek directly into the store and so thats exactly what I did! -Erinn ;)

My nephew

I do believe that my nephews are the most beautiful thing the grace this earth. I know I am most certainly biased, but thats ok. This picture was taken in my parents back yard a few evenings ago to celebrate the many June birthdays in my family! Childeren are wonderful to take pictures of, but I try to grab a shot that isnt so universally played out. I think this one will do -Erinn ;)

Going up, Going down...

In Las Vegas there are many escalators everywhere, especially on the strip to help people move along. The first escalator is inside the Wynn, I just happened to see the shot and I grabbed it. The second is when Dave and I were headed back to our cars after our photography adventure, this man decided to give his legs a rest, which is a very understandable feeling, especially after making the trek up and down the strip! -Erinn ;)

Danny Roberts

By Any Means Necessary

Starting of a Storm

Damned Ink Studios: Gallery Wall, January

Remains to be Seen

Release the Devil

Danny Roberts is a brilliant local artist here in the Vegas Valley. I discovered him just over a year ago at First Friday and have keep an eye on his artwork ever since. First Friday is an event, downtown Las Vegas, every First Friday of the month. First Friday features artists, free walk through of the art galleries, food, and entertainment. He sells $20 canvas prints, of which I have bought at least a dozen by now. These few paintings do not even scratch the surface of his great collection. He has an astounding talent and ability of portraying our most basic human instincts, actions, feelings, irony and society's conflicting morals/politics through his paintbrush. His artwork as well as many others will be on display at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino June 29th & 30th, curated by M Modern. Please feel free to visit his websites or you can call his gallery, Damned Ink Studios, at 702-480-9090 for more information! http://www.damnedinkstudios.com/ http://www.myspace.com/damnedinkstudios
