Today I took a very long joy ride around the valley, ending up many miles north of the city around Apex. I stopped by the Las Vegas Motor Speedway and other places for some random photography. But one particular area was depressing to drive through. It left me feeling like the area was full of strife and and depression. Even feeling angry.

These two photos are a tiny piece of what I saw and felt. Neglected homes, run down and failing along with numerous piles of junk. One can find this sort of thing in too many cities around the country, yet to find this going on in Las Vegas seems an odd juxtaposition.

Those mega casinos on the Vegas Strip with their millions in the bank give not one shit about the money struggles of others. Maybe I’m just ranting but something seems way off…
