I like posing images which make you do some thinking. So what is this? Answer, a neon sign at the Neon Boneyard in Las Vegas. This is a very cool place and should e a must see for any visit to Las Vegas. It’s where all the old signs go when they die.
One of the coolest place to visit in Las Vegas is the neon Boneyard Museum. This is where many of the old and classic Las Vegas signs have been taken as they get updated. A place of color, peeling paint, and rust. All the things I like.
One of my favorite places to visit when I am in Las Vegas is the Neon Boneyard. This is like a museum of old Las Vegas neon signs. So many things to shoot there and such great color.
In only three days I head out for a 21 day trip that will take me to Australia and then New Zealand. I’ll be leading a photo workshop in New Zealand for PODAS (www.podas.info). So, it has been a busy week prepping all the details for this trip that should yield some fantastic images. I’ll try to post images here as time and internet connections allow. Todays image is from the Neon Boneyard in Las Vegas. It is colorful and arty. I like the simple composition. If you visit Las Vegas you need to take atour of this place. it is where all the old signs in Vegas go when they die.
Las Vegas is a great city and there is so much there it can overwhelm your senses. Once a year on one of my many trips there I visit the Neon Boneyard and have fun shooting images there. This is one I did playing with color and angles. Sometimes it is just good to go out and use the viewfinder to put a frame around something and explore through the viewfinder. When you see something that works (like this) you shoot the shot.
A quick update, tomorrow I head out for an 8 day adventure in the Palouse. This is a region in SE Washington state that is a very beautiful area to shoot landscape pictures. I’ll be leading a PODAS workshop there with 28 attendees and 5 great instructors. I’ll update my blogs as often as I can. So starting tomorrow look for PODAS Palouse images. You can follow our blog for this trip at the PODAS Blog by clicking here. The blog will begin on Wed.
Today’s picture was made in the Neon Graveyard in Las Vegas, where old signs from the strip go where they are torn down. I focused on a red light bulb and then enhanced it in a few apps on the iPad. Kind of different so I thought I would share.
Another image from the Neon Bone Yard In Las Vegas. shot and did HDR post processing on all the images made here. Why? Because I made it my assignment. Sometimes when I go out shooting I give myself a challenge or assignment. This one was shoot 5 exposures of everything and put them together after. The results are interesting and lend to the abstractness of this wonderful place. Part of the secret in shooting at the Neon Bone Yard is shooting tight and shooting just elements. fun place – fun pictures.
