One of our holiday traditions in Las Vegas is to make a trip down to the Ethel M Chocolates factory in nearby Henderson to wander through the brilliantly lit cactus garden. I think that every year the display gets better, with tens of thousands of bulbs twinkling in the cool Southwest desert air. This year, visitors are getting 3D glasses, which turn the lights into stars.
I decided to document our visit this year using the Hipstamatic iPhone app. I didn’t give it much thought. Instead, I’d shake my camera to change the settings and then shoot whatever caught my eye. Here are a few of my favorite shots from the night.
