Gulfstream Park

Gulfstream Park

What you see here are some Aerial shots of The Gulfstream Park Racing and Casino. This is a cool spot to come watch horse racing. Its a popular hang out for my pops, and I often come with him to spend some son and dad time and kick back some cold ones :)

I grew up in Nevada so the Casino is not very impressive to me, but the track is really nice and the action is always good.

Las Vegas Strip

Las Vegas Strip

Like with all of my travels I usually start with all the touristy spots, you know the places you see on tv, the stuff you read about on the plane in that funky magazine, the places you hear about as a kid. Im not sure why but I love all the touristy stuff, I mean how could you not? You have only been hearing about it for years. I hear more photographers than not say the complete opposite, not me I absolutely love it, specially in good company. Don’t get me wrong, I love going off the grid and getting my self into some scary situations but for the most part I love touristy spots. The Golden Gate, The Empire Estate Building, you know? How could you not???

Here is Las Vegas Strip, as touristy as it gets, I can walk up and down this place for a year and get a million cool photos, this place is just cool. This was shot from my room at the Cosmo from the 68th floor. After a few weeks driving staying in crappy motels, (nothing wrong with that) I had to treat my self to awesomeness on the last day of my trip.

Spread the love peeps, pick up a camera lets go tell stories…
