These beauties were taken while hiking around the Spring Mountain Ranch State Park probably two years ago with my old Nikon D3300 body. The website says the park is closed which is zero surprise right? Two things that I seriously want to do when this situation passes is hop on a big jet plane and go home to Michigan and see my children and the family! And of course get my bum back out in the open desert for some fresh photography. I miss the freedom!
Steps to the church Sanctuary at Canyon Ridge Christian Church.
Or as I pronounce it, Burrah. This guy and others were grouped around the entrance sign for the now dead and gone Bonnie Springs Ranch. The last drive out that way the very large sign was still there. Why? You land developers suck!! But I don’t have an opinion… 😂😂
I visited this local state park about two years ago and really enjoyed the walks both inside the old homestead house and around the trails. If your in the area, do stop by. There is of course a fee for entry as it’s a state park. In photo one you can easily see the pixels coming apart due to my now heavily reducing the file sizes. Sorry about this, friends and thank you, WordPress.
I am grateful for having been born and raised in this beautiful country, thank you God. 🙏🏻😎
My space, my place for which I am so grateful for. This small space has kept my brain from going nuts during this time. This time will pass but in the mean time I really miss getting out and about for my photography addiction haha! I was thinking this morning about my dad, the kids and my sister. As soon as it’s possible to hop an Airbus A320 I’m heading up to Michigan to see my babies and the rest of the family, I miss them so much! Sorry for the redundant photos.
Las Vegas will see sunshine and 91 degrees today!
We as Americans are so very blessed. 🙏🏻
Not my best photos, the colors are all messed up…
If you look to the left side of this photo about two thirds the way down you can barely see Las Vegas Valley which from this location is several miles to the east. I’m inside the twelve mile loop scenic drive which is run by the BLM and is a US Fee area. It sucks that we have to pay to enter, haven’t we already paid for entrance via our state, local and federal taxes?
Just two photos from yesterday, sunshine and 73 degrees today. Happy Easter my friends. 🙏🏻
This morning has been beautiful, a high of 77F today. I sat in my favorite chair soaking up that beautiful sunshine and some vitamin D for a bit. I snapped these photos and went back in to whip up this post. Happy Easter! 🙏🏻❤️🌞
But never anything like what’s happening to everyone on planet Earth today…
Americans built cars that were true pieces of art! ❤️
These pedicure chairs used to be in the salon where I had my feet taken care of every two weeks or so thanks to Diabetes. Apparently the business has closed, how sad for the owners and we customers. All because of something so small we can’t see it. Bullshit! This situation will devastate millions of small businesses which I see as the core of what makes the United States what it has been for so long. When this is done, America will have a new face.
I completely understand this farm life image. On the old car tour we passed this beautiful painting on the sides of three silos, my one regret today is that I didn’t have a Nikon in hand for the shot. A ‘modern’ iPhone just can’t equal the Nikon. iPhone photo taken in Georgia 2015.
Continuing with the antique auto theme, here’s a still as we rolled along a Georgia highway.
Here’s yet another iPhone photo from 2015 somewhere in Georgia. This man has a seriously huge collection of several kinds of antiques. One would have to spend plenty of time there to capture everything and with a proper camera. I still have several images to upload of the interiour of the barn. Wow…
Three photos from I don’t know when actually when but they are all iPhone photos. Mom had a wonder sense of design both indoor and out. She passed in 2012 yet her indoor and out decor is still unchanged. As it should be. 🙏🏻
This is where I am actually from, not the Mojave Desert 😎
This wall is in the hotel my father and I stayed at during the antique car tour, 2015. So retro!
