Absent Las Vegas

It's amazing just how much of Las Vegas is unbuilt or abandoned.

Flying away from the strip – The Strip – and then landing in Toronto created an interesting juxtaposition. The Strip itself is neither large nor dense; Downtown North York rivals it for its impressiveness from the air. And beyond that narrow spine of development the land could easily double for a low-rise industrial complex with acres of pavement, wide roads, and few buildings.

I have broken the links to hundreds and hundreds of photos, which will take a long time to repair. The workaround is to replace "photo.matthewpiers" in the link URL with "matthewpiers.smugmug". Awkward, but only temporary.

This is happening because I have revamped matthewpiers dot com. More of what I write and photograph will be going there, so check it out as well.
