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!

Freemont Street Experience

The Freemont Street Experience was first created in 1905 and it was the very first street to be paved in Las Vegas! The real excitement is in 1995 when the canopy above Freemont Street was built, its stretches over 5 football feilds long and then in 2004 they updated the canopy to LED technology to enable evern more detailed light shows. There is currently over 12 million light blubs and the structure weighs over 24,000 pounds. The investment of the canopy cost 70 million. I recieved my information from a handy website called: But I think the real history is that Freemont Street was named after Colonel John Freemont, an explorer who explorered Nevada with Kit Carson, Carson later becoming a name of a city in Nevada that was to become the capital of our state one day. I hope you all have enjoyed the history lesson! -Erinn ;)

School is out for the summer!

School is finally out for elementary schools for the summer!! Today the boys I babysit, celebrated by going to chuck-e-cheese!! They came home with this stuffed hammer and of course choose to slam it into their heads as hard as they can, while constantly giggling. They are VERY excited to be done with school! -Erinn ;)

This is a shot of your typical Las Vegas Boulevard, a.k.a. 'The Strip', traffic on the weekend. Congested and slow because everyone is looking at the glitz, glamor and tourists. Unfortunately lately though it seems like Las Vegas traffic has been rather fatal around the city. Its really unfortunate the lives that have been lost. Everyone please drive safely!!! -Erinn ;)

The Art Bar!

Everyone!! This is the Art Bar of our lovely lady of Las Vegas, it is located on Wyoming and Main, on the North East corner. It is quite the spectacle from the street being that the building is bright green. The Art Bar is a trendy scene in Vegas especially on First Friday when all the art galleries in the area open their doors for free and you can browse around. A lot of people head to the Art Bar before or after First Friday to do some mingling. Unfortunately there is a cover charge of $5 and it just so happens that I had no money on me when my friends and I went. So it still remains a mystery to me, this trendy bar that so many have talked about! One of these days I will make it back down there to take a look inside. So far, the parking lot was completely entertaining in and of its self. Haha! -Erinn ;)

Red Rock Hotel and Casino

Red Rock Hotel and Casino was built in Las Vegas amongst protest because it is deep within residential areas and very close to our State Park: Red Rock. The designers of the Red Rock Hotel and Casino really made this Casino stand out amongst the rest. They made an amazing effort in making this casino as beautiful as it is. These pictures are just some of the entrance into the Red Rock. -Erinn ;)
