I was looking through some images today and it occurred to me that some of the shots I was looking were of things that aren’t there anymore. Vegas is a town where that can easily be the case. It’s actually one of my least things I like about Vegas. I love cities that still have architecture that goes back more than 50 years.
Of course street art will come and go. But some of the artwork have lasted quite a while. You get used to seeing them. Such talent. And then you look up one day and they’re gone. Sometimes replaced with something new; sometimes just painted over.
Out With the Old, In With the New
These two images (above and below) show parts of an entire block that just isn’t there anymore. It’s been replaced by the new, shiny Circa Resort & Casino. Man, that thing is huge!
A Couple More
I’m sure we could all go back through the photos we’ve taken over the years and find ones that feature things that just aren’t there anymore. That’s just the nature of most things. Buddhists refer to this as impermanence. I’m just glad I was able to take these photos before they either disappeared, or changed.
