Thanks aarhus, keep up with your photo thread as well, even though I don't leave messages, I also browse around the threads here.

Today I left home a bit early for work so I dropped by Winchester Park and took some shots. I asked the guy on the skatepark if I can take photos of him and he obliged.

Every year, the Springs Preserve encourages children and teenagers to decorate the park for Halloween with emphasis on using recycled materials. I took my nephew to the park for a meal and to have look around.

Halloween night in Downtown Vegas, while the Strip held the fancier Halloween parties, my friend and I decided to go Downtown instead.

Looks like the now closed Sahara will undergo a renovation.

I could have edited this better but anyway here is a video clip of Foster The People @ The Cosmopolitan performing "Pumped Up Kicks" as seen from the LED screen of the resort. Too bad I had to work but here it is.

Curt Mega singing the lead on The Warblers' cover of Uptown Girl. Grant Gustin is definitely a nice addition to the Warblers.

Nice photos as usual.

The photos are stunning as the sun is always shining!

^Thanks, yes it is still sunny but temperatures are now a lot cooler most especially @ early morning and in the evening. My friend and I dropped by the Dollar General Market tonite out of curiosity. While it is a decent size market the selection is good but still limited compared to a grocery store. Dollar General Market has nearly 10,000 stores in around 30+ states.

Great shots. I really enjoy this thread.

I took the liberty of playing with one of your Lake Mead shots in order to remove some of the haze, I hope you don't mind.

Unfortunately the water turned out a bit blocky.

^Thanks and nice try, the bridge has a nice view down below but I would not walk up there when it is windy.

Some shots today @ the Cosmopolitan.
