About

Thanks for stopping by my website! My name is John, I’m 57 years young and a Michigan native who enjoys photography with my Nikon D3300 and occasionally with my iPhone7. Growing up in Michigan was a beautiful thing, I had a great childhood and have wonderful memories of snowmobiling all around northern lower Michigan and in Michigan’s Upper peninsula. As a teen, my father and I spent many weekends in Michigan’s northern lower peninsula riding dirt bikes in the north wood with  friends.

Photography and Blogging: We also engaged in quarter mile drag boat racing which entailed travel to several states while I was in High School, it was a good time in my life. Somewhere in the mid nineteen eighties I was given some old (at the time) camera equipment which I no longer have. That sucks. There was a colour film camera and a black and white camera. Actual film cameras. This is when I took a larger interest in photography. In the early 2000’s I put together my first site which was self-hosted.

That first site: Was all about politics, Michigan politics specifically. Well, that site became unpalatable in due time because of the constant flaming and hateful comments that come with a political website. I canned that site after what was probably around one year and opened another self-hosted WordPress site with a different focus. It didn’t last either.

No Niche’ Here: So here I am today once again firing up yet another site on WordPress.com, this time with a mix of photography, opinion and random thoughts on subjects that matter to me. And a little bit of video too? This is a General Interest blog, not a niche’ blog, however I will focus mostly on photography. Thanks for visiting Las Vegas Photoblog, I appreciate your taking time from your busy day to visit.
