I have always wanted to photograph Vegas at night.  I have only been there a handful of times, and each time I remember observing somebody lugging a tripod around and taking long exposures.  I have always had a love for nighttime shooting, and did a night photo project while attending school in San Diego, but I never liked the cumbersome tripod required for such long exposures.  Well anyway, with the advancement of camera ISO performance, I didn't need one!  I decided to bring a Fisheye lens because I've always wanted to try this lens in Vegas - also mainly because the hotels and buildings are in such close proximity, and the fast aperture would allow me to hand-hold the camera.  With the exception of the Bellagio photo, everything was shot with the fisheye.  Here is a collection of my favorites.  Enjoy!
