Through the window

We had a great time in Nevada and DH didn’t lose me once as I took off with the camera.  When booking our hotel room I specifically asked for a high floor with a strip view so that I could take photos from a different vantage point through the large windows.  We were on the 43rd floor and while it didn’t face the part of the strip I thought it would, I had fun anyway.  You’ve already seen the night shot with the moon and Monochrome Monday yesterday featured a view of the strip.  Today I’m showing you the view from across the street.

As I knew I wanted to photograph these and other areas that would require a zoom lens – which I don’t have –  I rented a great Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 lens from the friendly and very knowledgeable folks at Midwest Photo Exchange.  You don’t have to live in the central Ohio area to take advantage of their services; you can give them a call or email them.   After this rental I’m tempted to buy the zoom lens but I must curb my gear enthusiasm for awhile 😉  All images shown here were taken with the Tamron lens except for the first one which was taken with my 35mm Canon L lens.

  1. I’m queasy just looking at these (I don’t like heights) – but you did good even though the glass windows.

  2. I always love your photos. You are one of my absolute favorite photographers. Thank you for always sharing your work.

  3. I really like the perspective and composition of the images in this post. Great work.

  4. Great shots. My favorite is the MGM Grand. That is the danger of renting lenses…you then end up purchasing them. I did a lens rental by mail last year and it worked out great.

    Wow, I bet you were like a kid in a candy store – these are great shots, and a wise investment you made dear lady!

    Just amazing shots. I thought they were from an airplane or helicopter at first. When were you in Vegas? It has been cold the last two or three weeks but all of a sudden yesterday and today are in the 60’s (today it’s supposed to be 68)! Anyway, I love these shots and feel you’ve definitely captured a unique angle.

    Love the perspective you had! So different compared to “regular” views.
