Ditch Construction

More roadwork! Yay for living in a larger city, right? Back home, there was very occasional traffic congestion and having to be wary of Whitetail Deer leaping across the road in front of you.

Yeah, I hit one in 1998, a really crappy experience. Anyway, this stuff goes with the territory and is a tiny backup obviously. It’s sunny and 89 degrees just now by the way. Another perfect day!

Another Dead Boat?

This is disgusting! If you’ve been hanging around here, then you’ll remember this post and the burned boat on the side of the road on Lake Mead Boulevard.

However, this boat is directly behind homes, well within the city limits. I photographed this crap while on the way to the party store today. Things like this are a part of why this blog exists, though.

I have always intended to show people a different side of Las Vegas even though it may seem disparaging. Las Vegas is like any other large city with its sketchy folk, trashy folk, and plain old bullshit like this.

Equine Eyes

On a short jaunt to the party store today, I stopped by the park for a quick walk. Looking around, I noticed that there were horses under the big roof of the horse arena.

Great, and I have the proper lens on the Nikon too.

Of course, I asked permission to take these photos from the owners, a younger couple who were very nice, and definitely knew what they were doing with these big, powerful animals!

It’s those eyes that get me every time. Such big, beautiful eyes. They are powerful yet graceful animals that I love to watch run, gallop, and walk. Years ago, I tried riding a horse circa 1981.

I sucked at it apparently, as the horse reared up and almost ditched me! That’s good enough. Since those days, my horsepower comes in the form of a 4.3 litre V6!

Pepper, May 2012

Pepper is a beautiful girl that has lived with my folks for a long time. She is of course much older now and has the unfortunate hip issues that the German Shepard breed has. She was still getting around rather well though during my last visit which is now over one year, no thanks to the virus. How deeply I miss my family.
