Hey, sorry about the lack of any updates, shooting film is a bitch when it comes to updating a blog and not having access to a scanner is seeming to be a problem, i think i might shoot a lot more digital over the summer so i can at least update this regularly, i think i might just even start posting non related photography posts, who knows, im sure it will all work out somehow. Im rambling, just look at the pictures and be impressed or hate them, i dont care, just see them, feel something.

Daniel says I dont update my blog enough and I agree….so here is a big update from Las Vegas. There are many more shots to come so I hope these images provide some excitement for the rest of the images to come. I am very excited about this project…this is one I will be working on for a long time to come, I think there is something here that still needs to be explored, something about this place….the people, the perception.

Enjoy.
