Lawyer, magician and writer, Rick Lax, wore this very real looking old man mask on The Strip for a Las Vegas Weekly article. The article talked about Lax's experiences in the mask and how it was different from his normal life. The mask looked incredibly real and even had these creepy looking eyebrows. I was lucky that Rick, who is young, was able to accommodate my request to jump with his walker. We drew a crowd of around 40 tourists as we were taking the photo. I didn't really notice the people that gathered around because my back was to them. Ignorance is bliss! If I would have known about the crowd I think I would have felt self conscious.
Les Grossman is a longtime concert promoter and entertainment executive who has worked with acts like The Who and Led Zepplin. He is such an interesting guy that he is portrayed by Tom Cruise in the movie Tropic Thunder. He lives on the edge of Vegas, so I decided to meet him at his home for the photo. I took a bunch of photos, but liked these the best because of a the great light you get at night in Las Vegas when the city's lights bounce off the clouds.
