More Antiques

Here are four more iPhone photos from 2015 on the old car tour. Are ya tired of these yet? I hope not because I have plenty more to upload! I hope you and yours are all well this day.

Behind the Wheel: 1914 Pierce Arrow

Again from 2015, here’s an iPhone photo of my dad and I rolling along in the old timer. He’s driving, I would never ask to drive this car as it takes time to learn and he never offered! 😎

The steering wheel is on the right side…

In The Desert

“In the desert you can remember your name ’cause there ain’t no one for to give you no pain”

I love this old song by America, good memories – good years. This set of photos are all rather old and taken both around the city and also in the Valley of Fire State Park as well as the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. I am digging very deep into my archives to pull out photos like this! I can see the difference between the Nikon D3300 and the Nikon Z6 bodies, the image clarity is very much cleaner, sharper these days. I hope you are well and safe!

How Old Is This?

Do you remember the old days of Radio Shack? Back in the day they were my go-to store for many electronic items, even less costly ham radio gear. Today the company is in my view just a shadow of what is was thirty years ago. Radio Shack is hanging on by just a few threads. This radio is actually new, just out of the box. I bought it more for it’s nostalgia than anything else but the cheap little radio works very well actually. Visit what’s left of the company here.

Palmy Skies

These photos were taken yesterday around mid afternoon after a few rain showers had moved out of the valley. The palm tree looks really nice at this angle doesn’t it? This morning I made a food, water and beer run and found good success at a local chain market store. I added more water to the supply I have stashed and bought several new food items to add to my stockpile. Wow, how things have changed. I believe this situation will pass in time. Be safe my friends!

Empty City Streets

I took a quick ride to the beer store this morning, it’s so odd and a bit creepy to see these streets like this that are usually bustling with Las Vegas Locals like myself. I slathered up with hand sanitiser before going into the store, and before getting back into my truck and touching anything inside. These are scary times, my friends. Stay safe, stay home if you can.

Not So Barren

Not all deserts on Planet Earth are barren wastelands, the beautiful Mojave Desert that Las Vegas sets in is a beautiful example of what the yearly Monsoon rains can bring forth in the middle of nowhere. Both of these photos are wide-angle 10-20mm photos which to me make the mountains look shorter. Weird.
