While in Las Vegas during my last long road trip, I visited the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health. Since Frank Gehry is the architect, I knew this would be an interesting building to photograph.
Before sunset, I captured some abstracts of the structure. Here's one of those images:
But, my main reason for visiting was to capture this building at night. At night, red lights illuminate the interior and shine through the windows. Or, at least I hoped the interior would get lit.
I arrived at the Brain Center about 30 minutes before sunset, scouted the various compositions and then set up for my first pictures. To my surprise, the building remained dark after the sun went down. Since I was there on a Saturday night, my concern was that the building might not get lit on weekends when the Center is closed.
After another five minutes or so, the lights suddenly went on. In my view, the red lights make a world of difference in these photographs.
While killing time waiting for the sun to set, I "checked in" to the Ruvo Brain Center on my Facebook page--as I often update my Facebook with my current location while on a photography road trip. Before long, some concerned friends left me messages asking if everything was OK!
I shared some of my Brain Center photographs on various photography forums. A common response was that anyone who looks at this building long enough will soon require the services of the Lou Ruvo Center for Brian Health!
