About

Thanks for stopping by my website.

My name is John, I’m 59 years young and a Michigan native who enjoys amateur photography with my Nikon Z6 and occasionally with my iPhone 10X and Sony RX100 mirrorless pocket camera. Growing up in Michigan was great, I had a wonderful childhood and have fond 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 too.

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 color film camera and a black and white camera. This is when I began to take a larger interest in photography. In the early 2000’s I put together my first self-hosted website based on my home state of Michigan.

That first site:

My first website was all about politics, Michigan politics specifically. Well, that site quickly became rather unpalatable in due time because of the constant flaming and hateful comments that just automatically come with a political website. Nobody needs that shit so I deleted that site after what was probably around one year. I deleted that site and opened another self-hosted WordPress website with a different focus.

No niche’ here:

So here I am today once again firing up yet another site in 2016 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 you!
