I had the opportunity to lead an very enthusiast group of students on a “Picture Yourself Downtown” photo safari through the streets of the downtown Las Vegas. This event was put together by Zappos and the Downtown Project as an on going effort to educate our children in the arts.
We provided the kids and their family a list of items to include make me smile portrait and geometric patterns to look for to add structure during the city walk. The only rules for the walk were to have fun, explore creatively and frame it in their camera view finder. The kids photos will be posted at a later date.
The Downtown Project group is committed to transforming downtown Las Vegas into a community-focused area by empowering people to follow their passions to create a vibrant, connected urban core. At the heart of the project is thriving art, music, and creative culture. This is long over due–thank you!!
The Downtown Project has been allocated $350 million to revitalization of downtown Las Vegas. The funds are being invested in buying real estate, small businesses, education, and tech startups.

Here are a few images through my lens. It’s a fascinating city jungle and promises to get better with the downtown project. I highly encourage families to get reconnected with downtown Las Vegas as comes back to life. Enjoy the slideshow~lorenz
