Photo of the Week 75
I’m sorry to report that Photo of the Week is late this week because… Las Vegas. Enough said, right?
I spent the weekend hopping around Las Vegas in typical The Hangover fashion with my sister and my cousin. We stayed at the suite I won from Expedia at The Cosmopolitan, ate at STK, partied all over the strip and generally pretended to be millionaires. Then yesterday they left and I checked into a hostel located between an Elvis wedding chapel and an adult video store. Pretty much almost just as glamorous, right?
In what was one of my favorite moments of the weekend, we took a helicopter ride over the strip! The views were stunning and it was an epic way to kick off a night.
Inside XS nightclub, one of the most popular venues in Vegas.
Doing a cocktail tasting at the Chandelier Bar at the Cosmopolitan. It was so much fun to hear from the mixologist all about the fancy cocktails I love so much.
Next week’s Photo of the Week will likely feature my first ever trip to the Grand Canyon! Which is your favorite photo this week?
I like A the best but I would love to partake in all three. XS looks like so much fun!
XS and Tryst — both in the Wynn — are my favorite places in Vegas!
Alex, that first picture is incredible, especially from a moving helicopter! Nice work.
Thanks Emily! I was lucky to be sitting up front 🙂
Oh I have to vote for A, no contest! What a gorgeous view. What a quintessential capture of Vegas. And it’s so clear!
We’ve had clear skies… and freezing air! I was hoping it would be warmer here… wah.
A…brilliant color contrats. I was hoping for a picture with both the Elvis wedding chapel and the adult video store in it.
Don’t worry… those pictures are to come!
Love the first picture A! That’s Vegas how everyone imagines it!
Thanks Stephanie! I loved getting to see that iconic view from the sky!
A – what a great shot! Looking forward to reading more about your Vegas weekend 🙂
Thanks, I’m looking forward to writing about it! I crammed quite a bit into a five day trip!
A gets my vote. The kalidescope of colors and the contrast with the sky is amazing.
I was so happy to get the clouds and the skyline in one photo! Thanks!
Amazing photos – one of my dreams is to finally see Las Vegas. You did it in true style Alex x.
If you’re going to do Vegas… you’ve got to do it right! Thanks Ciara!
As a Californian I go to Vegas a lot… Already scheming on when to go back and I’m not even home yet! I actually like photo B the best, I love the red.
Amanda I’m so jealous you get to go so frequently! I LOVE Vegas and I would love to be there once a year… but I’m not sure if my liver and my wallet can take it.
I guess I agree with everyone – A
Looking forward to the Dec. meeting, should recognize you on sight – after all the great pics. Gram E
Can’t wait to see you Gram!
I hope you took the helicopter tour where they are pouring the glasses of champagne freely before you go! It makes it even better :-).
Heck yes! I will confess to you that I didn’t have a sip though… I was still hurting hard from the night before. My sister and cousin had my share 🙂
The helicopter shot is awesome! I flew through Vegas twice this last week with my sister – didn’t know I should’ve also waved hi to you! I tried to take a photo out the airplane window and succeeded in blurry colors so really appreciate photo A!
Aww, wish we had known 🙂 And yes, airplane photography is a difficult art form!
I absolutely love photo A. I actually took a similar picture during a helicopter ride over Vegas on my 21st birthday! However, your picture looks 100 times more stunning as I only had my IPhone with me…. Lol!
How did you win that trip from Expedia…random giveaway?
Expedia sponsored a huge part at the TBEX conference and I was lucky enough to be one of the winners of a drawing!
