Las Vegas series #2 pictures were shot a few days before Christmas 2003 with a 3 megapixel Fuji S-5000. This is our favorite time to visit Las Vegas: just after the annual National Finals Rodeo, when the city is taken over by cowboys; and before the insane crowds of Christmas arrive. Although the temperature can drop below freezing at night, it rarely rains in Las Vegas in December... unlike some soggy & sandstormy visits we've made in February and March. And we did narrowly escape McCarran Airport's closure due to a snow storm on December 17, 2008 (we left the day before.) We stayed at the Aladdin (now Planet Hollywood) for this trip, so this series of photos is concentrated on the central & south Strip area. This is kind of a transitional series of photos which marks the point where we began to learn how to shoot good night shots of bright neon lights; and is also the point where we had decided to begin recording each trip to Las Vegas as a separate series or volume of photos, whereas our Las Vegas Volume 1 series is a conglomeration of many visits to Las Vegas over a period of about 10 years.
