I took about 700+ photos, and please don't ask why. I just went snap crazy. The themed hotels, shows and blinking lights of Las Vegas were a photographer's delight. I'm hoping I'll be able to share all the good photos with all of you. Today, I'll start with the hotels - Luxor and MGM.
Luxor - one of the most interesting hotels I've seen. I thought the passage underneath the obelisk was cool.
Close enough for a pyramid imitation.
Obelisk and palm trees
Goat sculptures near the hotel's entrance.
The pyramid and the face of the sphinx. The railing you see there is for the tram connecting the hotels Mandalay Bay, Excalibur and Luxor. It's an easy way to visit each hotel especially during the hot summer months. On this visit, we chose to walk the Strip's entirety since the temperatures were still in the 60s and 70s.
A closer look at the obelisk.
I heard these are desert palms from Florida.
Here's the famous MGM Lion that roars when the movie begins and ends.
Interesting sculptures adore MGM's entrance.
The real MGM Lioness that lives in captivity inside the casino. Yes, inside the casino. We saw her during feeding time which starts at 11 AM.
Sleepy after a meal.
Just a different view of the Lion.
More of Las Vegas to come!
