John is a native of Michigan, 57 years young and retired. I've been using WordPress since 2000 with various websites, both self-hosted and on the side. I spend a great deal of time on WordPress and Instagram - It's a photo and blogging obsession... Thanks for visiting my humble photoblog.

  • Those Crooked Painters!

    I won’t bore you with all the details, suffice it to say that I found out yesterday that the painters who painted my home inside, and the garage, were adding water to the paint. That paint peeled horribly in the… Read More ›

  • Electric Riders

    This photo was taken at the Red Rock Scenic Overlook last year. The electric bikes are nice, something I should look into considering I need exercise, have a weak ticker too. They are very expensive though!

  • Big Beautiful Valley

    This photo was taken inside the Scenic Loop drive, a twelve mile drive on a one-way two lane road. It’s a U.S. Fee Area so you’ll have to cough up about twenty bucks for the pass. The view is looking… Read More ›

  • Flags On The Boulevard

    This is an older photo of mine, taken last year on the Big Boulevard as I call it. The American flag was a bonus, and note a little piece of a Spire at the Excalibur Hotel in the background too.

  • KLAS Tower

    This is the aircraft control tower at KLAS, or Las Vegas. This shot was taken while driving which I do not recommend!

  • Lady With A Flame

    Here is Lady Liberty on Las Vegas Boulevard, you’ve gotta love that beautiful blue sky! ❤️

  • An Odd View

    I find this juxtaposition odd yet beautiful. This is the view at the end of my driveway early today!

  • Speed Limit 23 and Smoggy Skies

    That odd speed limit sign is at our Las Vegas Motor Speedway north of the Strip on Las Vegas Boulevard. Don’t mind the smog, your in a large city! Breathe deep. These photos make the smog look far worse than… Read More ›

    If you are, oh well.
