The Neon Graveyard

After years of hoping to arrive there, we finally find our way to the site where mighty Vegas neon giants lay to rest, and it is on a day when a photography workshop is renting the entire location! Still, the views we snuck through and above the tattered fences were stunning. After a period of unseasonably cold Vegas weather, today was hot and dusty, with a blinding flattening light, and the seedy surroundings of the Neon "Boneyard" served to amplify the already surreal nature of the place. Witnessing these giant steel and wire and tube structures as they lay silent and faded on the desert ground was every bit as moving as I had hoped.
