Twitpic of the week


Demonstrating a keen eye for quality Vegas photography with multiple candidates for the Twitpic of the week, @Real_CNote’s winning photo was of the view from his room at Vdara @City Center.  Just in case it wasn’t clear, this week’s winner is @Real_CNote.  The photo not only captures a significant collection of Vegas’ north strip landmarks but also demonstrates the density in which they populate the landscape.  While large cities like NY and Chicago are densely populated with skyscrapers, in Vegas, all of these behemoths represent opportunities to create pinnacles of life experiences that may very well grow to be life altering or defining.  It also fucks with the mind because from this picture, it would seem that Flamingo is just across the street and Palazzo is just down the street.  Anyone who has attempted to traverse this terrine, usually the uninitiated, learn that the pretty building you are walking to is still a significant distance in your future an hour after your trek began.  The photo grabs Stratosphere, Encore, Palazzo, Venetian, Harrah’s, the Quad Linq, Flamingo, Cromwell and parts of Bellagio and we look forward to seeing them adorn the 2nd computer monitor wallpaper of 360 Vegas studios
