An Apology

This may seem a bit odd, but I feel as though I am boring you with redundant photography. There is a reason though, that reason is the virus. I just don’t feel safe outside my home and have been spending ninety-nine percent of my time here at home. These four walls are a safe zone, I want to keep my home this way.

All that I can offer are backyard photos and photography from years past via my trusty old external backup hard drive. I hope this won’t deter you from visiting this meager little blog. The custom URL for Las Vegas Photoblog is up for renewal next month, at this time, I intend to renew but that doesn’t mean I won’t be looking at other blogging platforms.

Over the last two days, I have read blogs and had comments with other bloggers here on WordPress.com regarding the damned block editor. Some have already made the decision to leave WordPress. Others will leave, but leave the old blog up for others to view. I am very much on the fence with this issue but for now will renew the custom address.

In the meantime, more brilliant yellows for you.

  1. You don’t need to say apologize dear John. This is your world(blog) and you (first of all) should make yourself happy not us… I do the same… I don’t get bored to be here, and all your photographical days are interesting and so nice for me… beautiful photographs are great touches and also being inspirational too for me…I enjoy. Thank you, Love, nia

  2. No apologies needed. I enjoy browsing your photos usually once a day when I get your “daily digest” email. I love the palm trees, the hot weather, and all your random photos. I hope you renew your website and keep it going. Thanks!

  3. You could always take more indoor photos. I love to see how others actually live.
    If you ever leave WP, I hope you will let me know where.

    • Thanks!! I’ll be renewing my URL next month. There’s nothing to see in here really, the usual things in a home!

  4. Stay strong and healthy! You’re doing the right thing. I love your pictures and memories from your home town. Keep posting please!

  5. You have nothing to apologise for; good photos are timeless. I understand what you mean about going out. I was really ill in March/April; I never want to be that sick again (though I probably will be!), don’t want to be physically close to people in general, and certainly not inside. Happy and grateful to socialise with those I trust, at a safe distance outdoors. I don’t understand the limited brain cells of those who have this childish view about ‘rights’ and wearing face masks in shops etc, or who think it’s OK to gather in close proximity on beaches/at protests etc. It’s just a matter of commonsense and maturity. Stay safe, fella!!

    • Good Lord, thank you, Mike!! These people are well beyond selfish and ignorant. These people are a part of why this virus continues to expand here. Maybe it’s the “entitlement” mentality of some Americans of a certain generation, Or not. A very complicated issue today, and what lay ahead? I’m glad you feel better, be well. πŸ˜ŽπŸ‡¬πŸ‡§

  6. Yes, it’s a brilliant yellow! By the way, it’s not easy to photograph this color, it’s a very capricious. I love these photos very much, they are full of life. I don’t care taking the same photos of the same birds. Does it really matter? Your photos are emotional and that is what matters.
    Thank you for this brilliant yellow!!!

    • Wow, thank you, Kaya! Yellow seems to absorb the light, making definition in the image more difficult. I’ve never been told my photos are emotional, wow. ❀️

  7. You could always pick a topic and talk about it on your blog. It doesn’t have to be a controversial one. Just something that you have thoughts about. You don’t have to be a writer to express some thoughts.

    • A writer am not I, Anneli. That’s what talented folks like you do! I don’t see my ham radio hobby as interesting to other than a very few people. I’m a man of limited interests.

      • But you have thoughts about issues. They don’t have to be controversial, and the writing doesn’t have to be like an author’s. You could write a little something about your first car, or some funny situation you got yourself into, or the best place you ever went to on a holiday, or what you used to do for fun as a kid. The list is endless. It doesn’t have to be a long thing, just a paragraph or two, and if you have a picture you want to include, go for it.

          • Yes, you definitely should. No one is going to grade your paper for the standard of your writing. If they do, just delete their comment. You say you have few interests, but that’s not necessarily true. Everybody has thoughts or opinions or little memories of old times they could share. It doesn’t have to be something that will get everyone riled up – just some nice memories that people can add their own to. Like you could write a bit about one thing you especially loved about your mother. Other people might have some ideas about their own mothers and could contribute that way. That’s just one of a million thoughts.
