Las Vegas Architecture


<br /> Some Amazing Buildings<br />

Night and Day in the City


Over the years the Strip in Las Vegas has expanded tremendously in all directions. The strip has grown longer expanding both northward and southward. It has become fatter – spilling out on both sides of Las Vegas Blvd. And the glitzy casinos and picturesque buildings now stretch upward, leaping skyward.

To walk the Strip is to be amazed by this part of the city’s architecture. Below is a look at some of these sites during the day and after the sun goes down.

 


I’ve photographed only a few of the casinos here. But Las Vegas is home to countless other amazing buildings. Even if you’re not a gambler the size and scale of the architecture is worth a visit to the city.

Aviation Photos

A Collection of Aviation Related Photographs

From our years of developing flight simulation software, we’ve taken many photographs while traveling in-flight to airports, conventions, trade shows and more. Below are some of these arranged by topic.

Please note that this is a shortcut way to view the photographs from seven different articles that were recently published separately.

Same Place, Different Face

For almost twenty years I’ve been flying to the Phoenix area in April or May to drive Mom’s car back to Michigan while she takes the quick way home by plane. I like driving and this is convenient way to retrieve her car and to spend few days sightseeing.

My wife Kris and I have quite a few grandkids. We thought it would be a treat for one of them to ride along and visit some of the “wonders of the West” on a road trip back to Michigan. This was also a great opportunity for Grandpa (me) to spend a few days together one-on-one. One of the grandkids and I would fly to Phoenix for a day or two to visit and then we’d be ready to hop in Mom’s car for the return trip.

For six different years you can see that I stopped to show them one of the most scenic places in America. Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park is part of the Navajo Nation in the northeast corner of Arizona near the town of Kayenta. In the valley is a 17-mile drive along which you’ll gaze at dozens of jaw dropping sandstone cliffs and buttes. I tried to stop in the same general area to record each grandkid with Merrick Butte or West Mitten in the background.

I treasure these pictures so that I have made 20″ x 30″ poster size enlargements of each of them.

They represent great memories for me and hopefully for each of these grandkids as well.
