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.
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…
After buzzing around the city for half of this day hunting for work, I headed home after stopping for a bite to eat. I like this view looking west from atop the bridge over the ninety-five freeway. The foothills look nice under a very bright and sunny sky today with 106 degrees in the forecast. Stay cool out there, people!
I took a short ride around the area this morning and stopped a couple times to inquire about job opportunities. These photos of the Strip aren’t very good but they give you an idea of what it looks like from several miles northwest. There were far fewer people at the park too thanks to the 100+ degree heat today.
I may have mentioned this a few days ago, but I’ve been looking for employment after doing basically nothing for too long now. Hence my being away from the blog today which is certainly OK. More on that later. These are the only photos I managed to get today but at least it’s sunny and hot today with 102 at the moment. Stay cool!
