Photographer's Note

Some architectural details of the Venetian Resort Hotel Casino in Las Vegas, a Venice-themed hotel on the strip. The existing structure occupies the site of the old Sands Hotel, but is operated by the Sands Corporation. The hotel/casino/expo and convention center is part of the largest hotel/resort complex in the world, featuring more than 7,000 rooms and suites. Ground was broken on April 14, 1997 (not a particularly auspicious day!), but the complex took only two years to build, opening in May, 1999, but several additions have taken place since. There are replicas of famous structures such as the Rialto Bridge, sculptures of the Lion of Venice, seen in the background, and the exquisite Doge's Palace with its light and delicate architecture that is a fair approximation of the original.
