Then & Now: Las Vegas, NV - Fremont Street (1949 / 2014)

As you can see, the original photograph was taken at about 20 odd feet in the air - so that was the dilemma I ran into - how do i get up that high to reproduce this photograph?  Well it just so happens that the scaffolding that holds the light projectors (for the light show on Fremont's archway) was exactly in the perfect couldn't have worked out more perfectly!  However this scaffolding was blocked off by a number of barriers.  After some consideration, I decided to just go for it, and illegally scale this scaffolding without any security seeing me - and sure enough, I only needed a few minutes, and it worked out great!
