OK. I am inspired and need a challenge to post photos. So the idea of a 52 project is intriguing. Not sure I would be able to keep up with a 365 so this seems more do-able.

so... to begin then.... just got back from a week in Vegas so I will start with a couple from that lively city:

Thanks Eero - My first trip to Vegas was an incredible experience, leaving me with hundreds of photos to process, both in the city and from the desert surrounding it.

Mario, welcome to the 52. Always nice to see a fellow countryman join in. I like the first post that you have, particularly the first image.

You mentioned that you were in the desert. Did you get to the Valley of Fire State Park. I am hoping to get to the LV area this fall and it is on my list of places to go and photograph.

Thanks Wolf - it looks like this is a nice supportive way to force myself to shoot and post regularly here on the Camel.

Thanks for the comments. Yes - I took a tour into the Valley of Fire. It was wonderful and I have a number of shots from there that I am still going through and processing. I took a tour, as I mentioned, which was perhaps not the best way to do a photo outing. We were in the park from about 10am until about 2:30. Not an ideal time for taking photos, especially since most of the sky was also quite clear.

However, since this was my first trip into the area, I decided that a tour was one way to get me into the park and to the highlights it offered. I did get some shots that I am quite happy with and will post those once I get a few more processed.

I'd love to spend a few days going back at more ideal photo times. Hopefully that won't be too far into the future.

I totally agree Mario. I find it motivates me to get out there with my camera and shoot every day. Also helps me notice things that I would not normally have paid any attention to.

Good luck on your 52. Vegas is a fun place to shoot. On the second image did you try adjusting the photo using levels to bring out a bit more detail in the shadows?
