Aria Resort & Casino

Welcome back and Happy Friday! In today's post we have a look at the interesting architecture of the Aria Resort & Casino in Vegas. The repeating pattern of lines on this massive building drew my attention from several blocks away so there was little doubt that I would have this on my morning shot list. The resort is actually a series of buildings but I chose this tightly framed shot to highlight the building's detail.

My pal Mark Neal stimulated some thought the other day in his post where he made a case for colorIt reminded me of how popular B&W images continue to be, and always will be for that matter. I set out to produce more of them this year than in past times but admittedly, slowed my pace a bit in recent months. Having a strong preference for color is not a help. :-)

So back in the saddle, as they say...

To round out the post we have this sepia toned version, tweaked in Lightroom 4 after beginning with a “Medium Tone” preset.

Well that will do it for this post.

I will be playing catch up over the weekend and visiting many of your sites. It's been a tough week and I've missed my regular site-hopping routine but hope to be back in full-tilt soon.

Thanks so much for visiting and have a great weekend!
