out west

 

las vegas is such a photographic iconic sort of town that it's hard not to get caught up in the moving lights, colors and carnival aspect of its landscape. but what i also enjoy about vegas is that it's also a town people live in. not far from the strip it gets real suburban and then gives way soon after to something resembling small town rural america. the banality of this combined with the stark desert surrounding everything makes for something as interesting as what lies within the city center.
