An other Visit to Downtown Summerlin, Three

This is the next set of ten photos from yesterday in beautiful Downtown Summerlin, I hope you like this one as well. The next windstorm is set to begin any moment now, I read about its approach yesterday.

My phone just gave me a message that it’s coming with gusts to fifty miles per hour. I’ve seen the wind gust to sixty miles per hour before, my house starts creaking and cracking when those gusts come.

The Biker Memorial

Yesterday in Downtown Summerlin I came across this memorial to five bikers that were killed by a careless motorist. Whether they all died at once together or separately I don’t know. Reading the seats and other parts of the bike was a sad thing, children of the deceased left their messages too. So very sad, isn’t it?

A Pseudo Sunset

Last eve’s sunset was nothing spectacular but this is what I captured. The photo of the woman fireman and truck was taken on the side of an elementary school, the artist did a darn good job of honoring our local heroes, heroes that I thank every time I get the chance. The palm tree photo is leftover from the other day. Today’s forecast is for 86 degrees and sunshine, another beautiful day in Las Vegas Valley. These photos were minimally processed.

Fabulous

Have you had your photo taken in front of this sign or drove past it? I’ve never been in front of the sign as the thing usually has so many tourists there. Have I driven past it? Dozens of times. Come visit, venues are slowly reopening.

Music Box

This old jukebox lives at my folks place back home in Michigan, this is a modernised machine that spins CDs instead of good old vinyl which I believe has a deeper, richer sound than a compact disc does. I’ll have another beer, please!

Descending

A Regional Jet approaches the threshold at our McCarran International Airport. The distant clouds add a bit of flair to the photo. The RJ is my favorite aircraft to fly in, short takeoffs and landings too. Let’s get high together! 😎
