- The Thumbnail Traveler
- Welcome to the online blog for traveler/writer/photographer Steven Barber. Come in. Relax. Take off your shoes and socks -- or any other article of clothing, this is the internet. Have a look around. I hope to intrigue, amuse, entertain, and maybe provoke you just a little. I love to find adventure. All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.

Pic of the Day: Las Vegas High Roller
The view from the topmost arc of the Las Vegas High Roller, an observation wheel constructed by Caesars corporation to attract visitors to its new Linq hotel and entertainment district.
The wheel stands 550 feet tall -- the height of the Washington Monument.
From it you can see virtually every major Las Vegas hotel and casino complex, including (in this shot alone) The Flamingo, Bally's, Paris; Planet Hollywood; Mandalay Bay; The Excalibur; New York, New York; CityCenter; The Cosmopolitan; The Bellagio and a smidgeon of Caesars.
It's a stunning view, even when a lightning and thunder storm are blowing in...
