I have always wanted to see the show Absinthe, so when Delta Airlines called me with a project that would give me an opportunity to photograph the show, I jumped at the chance. One of the things they asked me do was to shoot some slice of life shots of people walking up and down Las Vegas Blvd. It is always fun to watch all the tourists wandering around as the sun sets and the city lights go on. The later it gets the more things there are to see. People also act differently when they are walking around outside rather than being in the casino.
Here are some recent photos of Olympic high jumper Vashti Cunningham for Sports Illustrated. At just 18, the recent high school graduate is poised to become one of the world's best high jumpers. Her mother, Felicity de Jager, is a former professional ballerina and her father is former NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham. Growing up in Pennsylvania I can remember playing football as a kid and how everyone always wanted to be the Philadelphia Eagle's Randall Cunningham.
