Seeing The Light

I recently spent a week’s vacation in Las Vegas and I thought I would use this opportunity to set myself a personal challenge. Knowing that I was planning a Road Trip next year I wanted to see if I could take normal “holiday” photographs as well as a specific photographic assignment.  The assignment I set myself was “Seeing The Light” a series of Las Vegas pictures in black and white.  I hoped that shooting black and white would minimise the distractions of this colourful city and instead focus attention on the subject.

So here are the images, let me know what you think:
