People Are Out and About

Las Vegas is a city of about two million people, many of them are still out and about doing their daily things. My drug store and pharmacy now has signs taped to the floor with blue tape forming a line with a six foot spacing. Why six foot? Overall things seem very much normal around my area of the city which I’m grateful for but let’s keep things in perspective, be safe.

Today is sunny with 82 degrees. 🌴🌞😎

Old Grits

No rotting grits here, just some iPhone photos from 2015. Back in the day the boys and I called a pack of smokes ‘Grits’, a single smoke is of course a Grit. Hey, this was the early 1980’s and some damn good times. Can I go back? I wonder what these antique machines are worth…

Antique Things

Digging ever deeper into my archives, I extracted another fun set of images from 2015, this time from when my father and I were on an antique auto tour covering a small area either side of the Florida/Georgia state line. I was likely the youngest guy there but hey it was a fun trip. And a bit scary too as well since these old timer antiques are a bit wobbly! I added the effects.

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!

Grabbing That Photo Opportunity

Last night after dark an ambulance pulled up a couple doors down from my home. This has happened a few times since I’ve lived here which is of course not a good thing. As I watched the strobe lights on the vehicle flash through the glass blocks in the kitchen I saw a possible opportunity for some abstract images. Several photos were taken, I chose this small lot of five to process and upload. I certainly hope whoever the ambulance did pick up is doing well today.

Quarantine: Backyard

I am fully aware how redundant my backyard photos are but honestly, it’s a nice bright spot in my days. I scuffle-hoe those pesky weeds that go POP! overnight seemingly by magic right out of the ground, root and all. Weeds suck. I keep that wonderfully green faux grass blown and picked clean daily as well. A few minutes ago I found some nasties out front, two more kills for the old hoe. I have another set of these taken today for later. Pardon my redundancy!

Looks Animated?

this is another derivative photo, it’s a bee on a flower I photographed a few weeks back at the park. Gently processed in iColorama, it looks as though it’s animated or a painting to me. 😬

Eye Exam

I’m so bored that I’ve downloaded a trial version of some photo software! Not tried it with a color image yet. This sign is located in Downtown Summerlin and is an older photo.
