190621 Photo Walk - To the Strip!

Sun City Summerlin Photo Club
Photo Walk June 21, 2019
To the Strip!
Beth Bacher, Helen Delahunt, Dale Kavula and Diane Frankenfield ventured to the Strip for the June Photo Walk.  Our destination was the corner of Park Avenue and the Strip, which had an amazing variety and amount of photo ops for us!

At that corner, we were able to take interesting photos of the New York New York Hotel and Casino (inside and out), T-Mobile Arena and Plaza with interesting sculptures and water features, the MGM Grand exterior, and the Park Hotel with the new feature, Eataly.  If you missed this opportunity to visit this very interesting corner of the world with us, we encourage you to make the trip as you have such an amazing variety of subjects to photograph in this small area…not miles and miles of walking with very convenient and close parking in the Park’s parking structure.

We arrived late morning and had the place to ourselves, giving us an opportunity to take our time composing our shots without people jostling us or in the picture. We alternated spending our time photographing outside, then would go inside for a whole new set of interesting subjects/scenes.  

We ended our outing with lunch at Eataly which is located in the front of the Park Hotel and Casino…many Italian food choices for lunch and opportunities to pick up authentic culinary items from Italy and/or enjoy Italian chocolates or gelatos.

There won’t be any official Photo Walks offered during July or August.  We’ll resume in the fall, with a trip to the Neon Museum near dusk so we will have the opportunity to photograph the vintage signs in the daylight and then again after dark when some will be lighted. Date TBD.  You won’t want to miss this!

Have a happy and safe summer, and look for opportunities to grab your camera and find interesting subjects to photograph!
