It's Caesars, Not Caesar's

Here's today's attempt at HDR. (High dynamic range.) For HDR, you use multiple exposures of the same scene, in this case three shots. One's underexposed, one's exposed normally and one's overexposed. The result is interesting, although I haven't mastered the fine tuning. Oh, well.

Oh right. Caesar is not a person it is a title. Therefore, Caesars Palace is the same as saying Palace of the Caesars. Plural, not possessive.

Right! Bonus points to Chris for knowing that one. The original folks wanted the hotel to be thought of as being for all of us, all of us being Caesars, as opposed to it belonging to one person.

Thanks Scott, now if you will excuse me, I need to comb through all my photos, blog entries and such and change Caesar's to Caesars.

SCOOOOOOOOT!


HDR is way cool. I have been admiring HDR shots on Flickr and never bothered to figure out how they did it.

My new lens arrives in a few days. How do you feel about taking an HDR field trip with me sometime this weekend during sunset? There have been some great cloud textues all week. The strip? Lake Las Vegas?

except wouldn't it be Caesars'? If it is "Palace of the Caesars", it would still be possessive. I'm just saying.

A palace of Caesars, not owned by Caesars. Yeah, it's a little bit of a jaunt to get what they were thinking.
