Photographer's Note

For those of you who have been to Las Vegas in the past 5 years, but havn't been there in the last few months...boy has it changed!!!

In with the new Modern Architecture is all i can say!
This is nothing like the Bellagio or Paris or Ceasers Palace Hotel.

This is part of the new City Centre, a combination of several Hotels, Condos, Urban Living, and Casinos. The focus is actually less on the Casinos, and more so on residential high rise condos. Its a Major change from the 'lets build casinos' way of Vegas thinking.

Its located right on the Vegas Strip, across from Planet Hollywood and next door to Monte Carlo, taking up over 76 acres of land!

It includes the Aria Resort, Vdara - a 57 story highrise of residential condos, the Harmon Hotel and Spa, the Mandarin Oriental condo highrise and Hotel, the Veer Towers - another 37 story highrise condo, and the Crystals - a retail and entertainment development.

i will try to upload photos of each one of these new buildings.

What you see here is the Vdara main Hotel entrance. It looks to me like a spaceship, with that curved glowing flat plate structure peeking out infront. Vdara is so large, i couldn't fit it entirely into the frame.

Hope you enjoy this first installment!
Cheers
