Your name here.

When you visit the Stratosphere, the giant tower at the north end of the Strip, you can get a souvenir photo. They take a photo of you in front of a green screen, and digitally insert it in to a background photo taken from the top of the tower. It seems odd, that, when they went to all the trouble of building a tall tower, where they could take actual photos of people at the top, they instead want to create fake photos. I think they have the same thing at the shark tank at the Mandalay Bay. At a place where you could easily take a real photo of yourself in front of a shark, you have the opportunity to make a fake photo.

And that's Las Vegas.
