Losing in Las Vegas
Photo Location: Nevada 
Posted By: Bob Harris, 11-09-2012, 10:03 PM

We visited Las Vegas to attend the Romney celebration in town, but our candidate lost, so what do you celebrate. We went and visited a couple of casinos and I lost too at the tables, so to try and get something positive out of our 2 day trip, I took some pics from the hotel pool area of surrounding casinos. Not all was lost, we had some great meals and win or lose played the slots just to pass some hours. Some photos of our temporary backyard for your pleasure and it won't cost you a dime to view them.

The last one is a very cool near abstract made from what I would guess is typically tacky Vegas hotel architecture. I also love the contrast in #1. Sorry about your bad luck at the tables, but you've done your part for the Vegas economy.

I took that photo leaning back, handheld, with camera in right hand and a Bloody Mary in the left.

Whoa Bob, nice photos!

Geeze you picked the wrong place to be a Romney fan - Vegas? NV? The State of Jefferson is Republican country. I had a couple fingers of Single Malt that night!

Please go back for revenge.
As you get money, I recommend that you go to Death Valley. It is as good place as casino and Zion.

Death Valley is only about 50 miles from our RV park, I'll post some pics of the area later and thanks for the advice..
