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.

  • Old Drone Photos

    Two drone photos from roughly 400 foot taken in 2018 just outside of Las Vegas. I don’t drone these days…

  • Blooming Soon

    Here are two photos from last spring I think when the Joshua Trees were exploding with blooms. Joshua Trees – my favorite!

  • When Washes Wash Out

    Taken in Lovell Canyon last year, this is a great example of the aftermath of heavy rains in the mountains. The Clark County Road Commission will eventually come through here with the proper heavy equipment to remove the tons of… Read More ›

  • Flattened Parking

    So glad I’m not a road sign… How disrespectful! 😂

  • Digging Out the Oldies

    Since I’m stuck at home (tough deal right?) waiting for the appliance repair guy, why not dig out some oldies? I use two forms of photo and video backup: Dropbox which is awesome and ten times better than that damned… Read More ›

  • Home Things

    Just a few photos of things inside my home. I’m stuck here you could say as I have to wait for the appliance repair dude to show up. It seems my five month old brand new Frigidaire refrigerator decided to… Read More ›

  • Chili With Jalapeno

    Here’s the next pot of hot. I made it the usual way but added one Jalapeno into the mix. Whoop ass! This chili has my usual flavour, but adding that small pepper into the mix really beefed up the juice…. Read More ›

  • Bonnie Springs is Dead

    Bonnie Springs was recently sold to the damned developers. Apparently Bonnie Springs was not doing well financially which I don’t find surprising when you have a good look at the place. It just grind my gears that homes will be… Read More ›

  • The Unseen Canyon

    Here’s an older photo of mine looking northeast toward Red Rock Canyon proper. You can’t see it unless you pay your bit to get inside the BLM fee area. Red Rock Canyon is gorgeous, do take the time to visit… Read More ›

  • Art Deco at the Dam

    Here’s an older photo from Hoover Dam, these statues are very tall and beautiful.

  • Feeding The Federal Beast

    Well today is the big day. Did you pay your taxes? Or, are ‘they’ gonna come knocking on your door and invite you to have a free stay in prison until you pay up? Not paying your taxes, aka feeding… Read More ›

  • The Rain

    Rain falls in the valley a few days ago, rain is forecast for Tuesday. Those sails are so gorgeous aren’t they?

  • A Little Carnival

    A little Ferris Wheel at a little carnival. Same carnival, same location every year!

  • Speed Doesn’t Pay

    Yer sooo busted! There are plenty of corners for the police to hide in along the roads in this area. Slow down, it’s cheaper than a ticket and insurance cost increases!

  • A Terrible Choice

    Considering the unfortunate things that have happened within our US Post service, this is a horrid business name. Shame on this company which apparently lacks respect and compassion for the victims of madmen.

  • The Valley’s Edge

      I was on the edge today haha… 😂

  • Easter

    YES! NO!  If you are like me, you’ve had enough of the insulting TV and other ads. Thank you.

  • Looking Down

    While gradual, some roads on the west side are rather steep. This one isn’t too steep but zooming way in with the 70-300mm lens will give you an idea of the angle and distances. Mountains are awesome!

  • The End

    Another set from today, there is a large subdivision to my left, the developers are hard at it making sure more desert is paved over with homes and roads… it’s called Urban Sprawl….

  • A Sunday Drive

    I had to get outta the house for a couple hours today, it’s so beautiful today so I took a ride to some areas in the northwest area of the valley that I’ve not been in before. It’s still amazing… Read More ›
