Vegas Eye: 40,000 Eyeballs Per Month

If you’ve ever driven along I-15 between Tropicana and Charleston, you’ve seen this week’s Vegas Eye view. In fact, there’s a pretty good chance that 39,998 other eyeballs have seen this same view in the last 30 days. This ought to be one of the easier Vegas Eyes… (right!) As of press-time, I don’t know if anyone has solved last week’s puzzle but this week’s geo-location puzzle continues the current trend of presenting photos that are: taken at very familiar properties and places around the valley and are both in plain sight and somewhat out-of-sight…

What are those maidens doing?

1. Art and sculpture is a common theme in the Vegas Eye collection of photos — Where is this location?
2. This place has achieved a level of notoriety over the years… Do you know one of the more memorable events?
3. Where (exactly) was the photographer standing to shoot this photo?

More about the Vegas Eye mystery photo game:

1) Anyone can play! If you think you know the location of the place or landmark pictured in the mystery photo(s) and can answer the accompanying questions, please post your responses as a comment below. Locations and landmarks are all located within a 35-mile radius of Las Vegas City Hall.

2) We invite you to contribute mystery photos to Vegas Eye and pose your own puzzle questions. If you’d like to contribute, please keep in mind that a good subject for a mystery photo should be unique in some way. There should be subtle but identifiable visual clues in the photo to help players solve the puzzle. Please send photos and puzzle questions to Vegas Eye at this address. (Please submit high resolution photos. Full-size images straight from your camera are best.)

3) If the players and contributors of this Vegas Eye game are unable to completely solve the questions posed by Vegas Eye, than Vegas Eye will be compelled to provide and post answers within a 30-day period of the original post. Participants in this Vegas Eye game will be awarded some level of bonus points for solving these puzzles within the thirty-day period. The calibration of the relative value of these bonus points is still be determined. However, in October 2010, Tom Herbertson was able to deduce and otherwise figure out all of the mystery locations shown here and he won two official “Living-Las-Vegas Staff coffee mugs.”

  1. That looks like it is on the exterior of Treasures Gentleman’s Club.

    One memorable event was the 2007 beating of customer Michael Grasso inside the club.

    It turns out that I’m bad at figuring the location of the photographer of an image, but perhaps he or she was on top of the Palace Station’s parking garage.

  2. Well, this is very odd….

    I responded to Martin’s post on the 14th, but my comment seems to have disappeared… So, please excuse the apparent tardiness of this response!

    Excellent, excellent work!.

    Yes, that sculpture is located on the western edge of the property nearest the I-15 highway.

    I was thinking of the DUI arrest of the “king of Hollywood bad guys” and his motorcycle mishaps.

    Megan was standing in the NE corner of the truck parking lot at Palace Station.

    Once again, excellent work!


  3. Tell you what: I don’t say anything about apparent delays, and you don’t say anything about the fact that I only identify photos taken near strip clubs. 🙂
