It wasn't all food and drink in Vegas. There was a feast for the eyes, too. The Venetian hotel hosted an exhibition of the fifty greatest photographs from National Geographic magazine. Plucked from 125 years of history, these photos and the stories behind the lens were fascinating.
Some of the pictures were taken spur of the moment. Others were planned excursions that yielded magic. This was a cool exhibit - a quiet break from the Las Vegas hubbub.
