Alternative Perspective of the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace

by Kristi Hines · Las Vegas, Nevada


Whenever you walk around the Las Vegas strip during a weekday (when you’ve had about enough of a conference), you get the opportunity to do some fun things like lay down in front of a usually busy entrance to get a different perspective of architecture.

Great perspective shot, I really like the reflection in the Forum Shops sign.

I do like this perspective, it’s different that what you normally would see. Good job!

I think I might do a Vegas week actually. ;) Oddly enough, I didn’t spend too much on this trip at all outside of hotel and airfare. Just have to stay outside of the shops, as shown in this pic. It’s when you go inside that you get in trouble!

“If I can’t shop there, I can at least take photos.” < That'd make a good title for this photo.
Great angle. I can't believe I never considered it.

Good title suggestion. Yeah, I only go into this place to see the fish tank in the middle because they have stingrays, which are my favorite. Even window shopping in there makes you feel like you are accidentally oozing money out of your pores. :)

Yay! I can see your site now! Great shot. I LOVE symmetry and this is no exception! Wonderful! Just curious – what did you do to fix the issue?

Kristi Hines

Awesome! I didn’t do anything but add a plugin (just a few minutes ago) and email that company that provides the warning message and ask why my site was blocked. I thought it was some kind of thing where they thought my site had some kind of dangerous or malicious content.

Also, I’m a huge fan of symmetry! I took this picture a dozen times to make sure it was as aligned as possible from the start. It just needed a tiny rotation in Lightroom to look almost perfect! :)

What a great shot! I just post few very old photos I took a long time ago in reply your photo from the similar perspective. Look Up Caesars Palace

Did you really lay down in front of the mall or just use tripod? That sounds fun!

I really was laying on the ground. I was just doing handheld shots that day so it was the only way to get that perspective. :)

Cool POV Kristi, great idea though I bet you look funny laying on the ground like that! Thanks for the visit to my blog, and now I see you are married to Jason, another great photog. Nice meeting you both! Also your Kikolani site is cool and useful, nice work! Jim

Thanks Jim! I really don’t mind how I look anymore when taking photos – I figure other photographers understand and the rest probably just think I’m creative. I hope at least.

Yes, my hubby is a great photog – we usually are doing our comments at the same time in the mornings and it’s become a fun little game of “Yay, I beat you to this one!” It’s fun having a common interest though, and interesting to see the differences between what we shoot when going to the same places. :)

Vegas is amazing for the ability to walk around and find something to photograph. I’ve been only once.

Perspectives like this are a nice break from all the other photography. Good for you being able to lay around and not care about what others might think as you get the photo.

The only thing I really worried about was getting stepped on really. No one came out the door I was in front of the whole time though, which was nice. :)

Cool perspective! I took a similar shot at night when I was there awhile back. Great job of capturing the reflections in the glass.

N.A.B.? I missed it this year – just too much going on but I’ve been there the last 12 years or so. I love the perspective of this shot, very unique!

No, it was for a marketing conference. Haven’t been to NAB before, but it looks like a good event to check out!
