I was in Las Vegas recently for a work kick-off event. I came up with a cunning plan to try and photograph the dawn by getting up early. I also thought it would be very quiet out since everyone would be nursing hangovers or still sleeping.

Anyway, I couldn’t see far enough to catch any colours and on this morning at least, the transition from night to day was as though someone had flicked a light switch. Not very dramatic!

I felt it would be interesting shooting the empty Strip. However, there were still plenty of folks around including workers cleaning the streets and hotels as well as all-night partygoers tiredly wandering home.

I regret now not being bolder and photographing these people. They make Vegas what it is, not the replica landmarks and bright lights.
