i traveled to las vegas a few weeks ago. not my favorite place in the world. but this time it wasn’t for a bachelor party or an extravagant birthday weekend. i went with some friends and clients for a photography convention, and it turned out to be a great time.
i only set aside $50 to gamble before the trip began, but by the second day, i had convinced myself that $150 was the right number. stupid.
the conference was very interesting though. lots of good information, and i made a lot of new friends.
and actually, i ended up breaking even with my $150. something i’ve never done before in vegas. so i felt like a winner.
i also came home with three international awards for the below photos. very exciting.
so i believe the trip was a success; i made new friends, didn’t lose any money, and won some awards. much better than the previous three trips i made to vegas in my younger days, where i lost money, my dignity, and won 0 awards.
