This guy is Charlie McCarthy, I did a little bit more processing on him this morning, now he looks like a child. 😂
The textures of the Mexican Fan Palm are nothing like the Deciduous tree. The Nikkor 24/200mm lens works pretty well as a macro lens doesn’t it? Our weather is going to heat up next week to around 112 degrees but just 97 degrees for today. There are plenty of people in Las Vegas that really do love this much heat on a daily basis.
Names such as Stinking Creek Road and Big Bone Lick State Park make traveling from Michigan to Florida kind of fun. Who came up with these names? These photos were taken a few years ago during one of my twice-yearly trips from Michigan to Florida, then drive the big rig back to Michigan in the spring. Fun!
The last time I did this was in 2020 before the virus came along. Well, I avoided the virus thus far but a nasty kidney stone was waiting to whoop my bum when I got down there. ouch, this is stone number two. Number one was during the 1990s. And the damn doctor told me that I’d likely not have another stone!
It was a busy morning including taking some iPhone photos of the flowers at the grocery store. Today’s weather is sunny, 90 degrees with a stiff wind but over the next few days Las Vegas will heat up to 110 to 112 degrees, the heat warnings are already being broadcast on the NWS transmitters and online. I hope the old AC system in this home will get through another scorching summer. And I’m still waiting on calls or emails for work which sucks…
This is 32 seconds of a very windy evening in my backyard, enjoy. 😎🌴🌞
This RF connector kit has been in my VHF/UHF radio box for a year until today, finally had some use for it. OK, these are goofy photos! Ham Radio is as much of a hobby as is photography and blogging.😎
I pass this sign occasionally and have photographed it before but my Nikon wanted another photo. This sign kinda grinds my gears since I’m three-times divorced and will remain single until the day I kick the bucket. It’s cheaper in terms of both money and one’s sanity! A girlfriend? I’ve been all by myself for five years now… It’s a peaceful life.
Anyway, I was driving to near the south end of the valley for some Ham Radio parts for my truck radio. It’s only in the low 90s today but we have a very high wind warning until 8PM this eve and man is that wind howling now!
The Stratosphere Tower is a long way away…
Pulling into a parking lot this morning, this huge group of Rock Pigeons caught my eye. I swung the truck around and snapped these photos. You can see a large number of small seeds on the pavement, I didn’t see who tossed the seed out but the birds were battling for every morsel! Today is sunny, breezy with 93 degrees, very nice!
While waiting for my breakfast to come out the door, I snapped these iPhone photos. Regardless of what the sign says, I still have to wait outside which is kind of silly! I’m glad that this locally owned and operated restaurant chain has survived Covid though, their grub is always delicious!
