A Pseudo Sunset

Last eve’s sunset was nothing spectacular but this is what I captured. The photo of the woman fireman and truck was taken on the side of an elementary school, the artist did a darn good job of honoring our local heroes, heroes that I thank every time I get the chance. The palm tree photo is leftover from the other day. Today’s forecast is for 86 degrees and sunshine, another beautiful day in Las Vegas Valley. These photos were minimally processed.

Fabulous

Have you had your photo taken in front of this sign or drove past it? I’ve never been in front of the sign as the thing usually has so many tourists there. Have I driven past it? Dozens of times. Come visit, venues are slowly reopening.

Music Box

This old jukebox lives at my folks place back home in Michigan, this is a modernised machine that spins CDs instead of good old vinyl which I believe has a deeper, richer sound than a compact disc does. I’ll have another beer, please!

Descending

A Regional Jet approaches the threshold at our McCarran International Airport. The distant clouds add a bit of flair to the photo. The RJ is my favorite aircraft to fly in, short takeoffs and landings too. Let’s get high together! 😎

Black And White Trees

I’m slowly burning through the photos from the park the other day. Why do trees look better in full black and white? Not gray-scale, but full black and white? They do to me anyway. The photo of the road is also BW since the sun wasn’t fully out so I flipped it. That damned mask was photographed today as I walked to my truck from the grocery store. Does human trash drop human trash on the parking lot? Come on, Americans, you can do better…

Geese, Ducks, Coots and Turtles

There are many kinds of critters at this park, the goose was literally three feet from me so I got as good a photo as I could with the 200mm lens, too close for a sharp photo. The cute turtles stayed put as I slowly approached the log then one dropped in the drink right after I clicked the shutter. How about that foot sticking up to catch the sun’s warmth? The Coot swimming away from me has a bad right foot, it was very sad to watch it hobble to the water’s edge then just fall into the water, plop. Poor little bird, I wish I could help it. I wonder how it was damaged? A turtle?
