Las Vegas Boulevard looks wet in this timelapse shot. But it’s not from rain, it’s the oil on the road and the hot semi-sticky tar glistening from the sun’s daily onslaught.

The following was shot on the Bellagio walkway across from the Paris. Riding the escalator to the bottom we saw a few girls dressed as showgirls. I first thought they were probably sponsored by a casino marketing one of their production numbers. WRONG. Each time a girl would get an unsuspecting tourist – victim – to pose with her, a burly imposing pimp-looking dude would walk up and demand some unknown and undoubtedly unreasonable amount of folding money. Only in Vegas. Photoprostitution. One imagines there’s gonna be a law shortly.
