Flashback Friday: The Tunnel of Riches

Flashback Photo

I have been wanting to share a shot or two that I took in Las Vegas for a while now. For some reason though my collection from that time frame has gone missing. I thought that I would open the Vegas shots with this one of the hotel that we stayed at. This entrance looked great to me, and I tried to stay still one night long enough to get it. Looking back now I see a couple of things that could have been better, but for my early shooting this is a pretty good shot. I liked the idea of a tunnel going into the casino. I did not get rich here though as the title may imply.

Technical Data

I normally don’t have a technical section for the flashback pics, but that may start happening a bit more. This was shot with my Kodak point and shoot so I thought that the shot is what it is. I have been having fun using Lightroom to improve my current shots, but what use are the sliders in Lightroom on an old jpeg file? The answer to that is that they are still magic. I have always liked this shot, but I think that I improved it volumes with the aid of Lightroom. It has always looked like a point and shoot shot, but now it looks more like something that was shot with a dSLR and a tripod.

Kelby Worldwide Photowalk

Here is that part of the post where I talk about the photowalk that I am leading on campus after the Wisconsin game in October. The date is October 13th to be exact, and the walk will start at 4 o’clock est at the Neil Armstrong Statue in front of the Armstrong Hall of Engineering. Over  1,100 photowalks are planned around the world. If you are not near West Lafayette then you kind find a walk near you on the Kelby site. Sign up now to be part of this event. Over 22,000 walkers have already signed up so far. You don’t have to be a pro (I am far from it) to attend. Any kind of camera is welcome as well. Here are a few links to the various sites which promote the event. If you want to sign up you should do so on the Kelby site in order to be eligible for the prizes though.
