Towards the end of this very shoot that became Vol. 2 the question arose... "what'd we do for vol. 3?" A question that shows that it felt like we had some shots to post this time around, which you never know the pics could of been less-than-stellar (impossible with Vera) by the time they made it to the edit.
The answer however is for another day as my tag-team partner has once again elevated things in two ways. 1st these classic cars supplied by Vera and her wonderful family have made this the most expensive photo shoot of my existence! 2nd some of the images I had only a hope of how they'd turn out, but then Vera went and made my thoughts into a reality that's greater than anything I could dream up.
One of the the photo goals... I know what you're thinking, "there's goals?" Yes there is! I really wanted to have some shots that made you feel something a little bit more than last time. More mood and a little bit more grounded. U...
I remember my excitement level from 2006 when gal pal and hair stylist Mandie introduced me to Adrianne. The lady featured in these here photos.

Way 1. Get in. Get out within 72hrs. or less with great friends who take pity on my financially Challanged Self. Sorry I was speaking for me if that last sentence doesn't help you theeeeen apologies. The rest of this is way more useful hopefully.

Way 4... Almost always get away from The World Famous Strip to buy anything like beer and snacks. Even if you're staying on said Strip.
Fancy ass CVS. Skip it. Go with one not on "The Strip" because $30 bucks for 30 Bud Lights suck and blow. And not in the Fun way.
Way 5. For Free drinks by simply playing games on the floor of the Casino, most games that is. The Penny Slots might be a challenge to get a waiter or waitress over. Forget what I said about $30 bucks for 30 beers sucking...
