Wanna Go For A Cruise?

I can’t sit in the house all day, it’s just too beautiful outside so off I go for a ride. No particular direction, just go. The purpose of this blog has always been to show people the other side of this city, Las Vegas isn’t just about those greedy casinos that basically steal your money. I show people what I see as the real Las Vegas.

The places that we locals see every day. The funny thing to me is that I’m not the only valley resident that avoids the Strip, it’s too crowded with looney tourists for me. Anyway, these photos are all via the new 50mm Nikkor lens. So far, this lens has been very enjoyable to use, so different from the telephoto lenses I’m used to.

    • Hi Annmarie, I left the sky a little extra blue when processing, I usually turn up the white range and other settings to bring the blue level down. Or, turn the blue down! That house design has a name, I can’t recall it, it must be odd to live inside a ball…

      • When my husband would have a run out west, it never failed he would tell me, that I wouldn’t like it there. Why? No trees. Now, obviously there are trees, just not like what I am accustomed to being around.

        • You are correct, before this city was here, all there was is what you see outside of the city! I think most of the trees were brought here that can tolerate the extreme heat and dry conditions. Most folk don’t know that palm trees are not native to the High Desert.

            • Exactly. Lake Mead hasn’t been at full pond since the 1980s. Neighborhoods are are told to water lawns on certain days of the week only but people doon’t seem to follow the rules. There is a service/company that actually patrols, looking for people wasting water. Yet, the golf courses just pump out the water… Ummm…

Your pleasant comment is welcome!
