Here are a collection of photographs I had taken during the 16 yrs I lived in Vegas, from 1981-1997. Once I seen the
city changing so rapidly, I thought I better capture it on film for history sake. During all the years I lived there
I never had no desire to gamble and the spirit of the "night life" had a minimal effect. Vegas is a city like others with
factories schools, churches and all manner of businesses, but it has an enormous Hotel and casino industry too. In 1981 our
family moved there and we all found work quickly. God supplied our needs through that city and ironically if the truth be
known, that is were I found Jesus! In the "sin city" You can read more about that subject at http://guitarprayer.tripod.com/
I also am interested in photography and like many different subjects. After meeting friends who also were photographers
I began to get better at producing some pretty fair photos.
Also I was interested in Trains and the Union Pacific ran right through the heart of the city. Therefore it was
easy to get photos of the many hotels in the background. It was alot of hardwork trying to get to and from the photo locations
and waiting for the right lighting and such.
From an artistic standpoint I wanted to capture the essence of the Vegas Neon Light life. I love art and I would have
to admit the combining of all those lights in such a manner was quite creative.
