Spring Break in Vegas has been a blast. I've found this to be a fabulous city to shoot in. Lots of people, gaudiness, commercialization, over-excess. It's the consumate American Town. I sometimes wonder how some of the old-school Vegas folk feel about their grown-up refuge becoming a big shopping mall. It's almost like sin city... decaffinated. You see relics of the past, old salty guys, ciggy in hand, clothes a few decades past, hiding in some back corner of a casino while the new age, young,family with kids crew, run around with Starbucks in hand and a heavy, hurried agenda to meet. It makes me kind of nostalgic for the old days when we could get away from all that hemogenization.
