I've been slowly digitizing my old kodachrome slides (of which there are many). While it's a lot of work, it's also a process that rewards me with some fun travel memories.
These photos were taken in Las Vegas in May 1983. It gets pretty hot in Vegas that time of year, although the desert nights are very pleasant. It was on one of these cool evenings that my brother and I wandered down the Strip.
I'd just gotten a new Canon camera and was eager to try it out. We'd stop every now and then to take photos of the Casino lights.
What surprised me as I looked through these images is that most of these buildings no longer exist. Most were smaller resorts that have been torn down and replaced by megaresorts featuring thousands of rooms each. It was an easier and simpler place to visit 35 years ago.
