our vegas vacation

I am almost caught up from being out of town last month more then I was in town. October saw us first going to Nevada to shoot my brother in laws wedding. We took a few days off after the wedding for some family time and explored the desert and saw a bit of Las Vegas too.  The wedding will be up soon but here are a few frames from our exploring.

The view out west from the plane is one of my favorite views in the world.

He felt better soon though.DSC_6298

The first day after the wedding we went out to the Hoover Dam. I photographed some Dam water, we ate some Dam hotdogs and had a Dam fine time! (we’ve seen Vegas Vacation a few times har we couldn’t wait to use that Dam joke and we are still trying to break Ares from using the “Dam” word, but it’s funny!)DSC_1390DSC_1356DSC_1420DSC_1424

Of course we hit the strip, we went to see Cirque too, no camera’s allowed inside though. We ate at the Bellagio, went to the top of the Eiffel Tower and checked out the sharks and jelly fish at Monteray Bay.DSC_1893DSC_1853sDSC_1871DSC_1680DSC_2756DSC_2790

But the best part was the few days we spent in the desert, hiking and climbing and exploring petroglyphs. We’ve discovered a new love for the rocks and the dirt and the heat and Ares discovered he’s a born rock climber!


Cannot wait for our next western adventure (and Annika and Iian soon :)Â )

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
