Mixed Photos

Here is a mix of my stuff and not my stuff. Do you think the DHL driver was fired for his miscalculation? That’s a whopper of a screwup! The sunset photo from the other night that’s not cartooned is actually straight out of the Nikon, with no processing except for the file size reduction.

The photo that has Fremont Street in it was taken on the way to lunch a couple of days ago. Fremont Street looked pretty darn busy in there. Very early this morning I had a phone chat with my dad to see if he’s back in Michigan safely, yes indeed. What is it like to fly during Covid days?

This has me wondering if I can make the journey up there next month after I receive the second Pfizer vaccine injection. He was not asked for his proof of vaccination card, I thought it would have to be shown to board the aircraft but everyone has to wear a mask the entire flight. How uncomfortable this must be, right?

Lunch With Out Of Town Friends

Today I met with some online friends who used to blog here on WordPress and used Instagram too. We have known each other via the web for three years now. Since they were in town we met up at a fun restaurant next door to the world-famous Pawn Stars shop, the same one you see on the television.

This restaurant is owned by Rick Harrison who owns the pawnshop. The food there is absolutely delicious! We three had a nice chat about many things including WordPress. The other photos were taken on the way home from lunch. Today is so beautiful, sunshine and 85 perfect degrees.

I have several more photos from today to share, please stick around!

Photos of Fremont Street

Here are ten older photos of Fremont Street that are about two years old and taken with the Nikon D3300 body. I’ve tried to clean them up but there’s only so much I can do. It was nice to go where you want with no mask and no fear of something so small that it’s not visible to our naked eyes. Time will change things as it always does…

Recycled Aluminum

Here are some nice photos of aircraft on approach to our Las Vegas McCarran International Airport about two years ago. I have lightened each photo up quite a bit, the Whites needed to be turned up a good bit so that they aren’t smothered in blues. Recycled aluminum, right? I’m excited about flying again soon and seeing my family. ❤️

Oldies

Well, once again I am out of new photos for the blog so out comes the trusty Lacie external SSD to the rescue. The train photos were taken near the fifteen freeway several miles north of Las Vegas. They are grainy, I’ve tried to clean up each photo as best I can. They were taken with the old Nikon D3300 body. It’s the same thing with the photos taken along the Las Vegas Strip too. One day I realised just how creepy clowns actually are. I wonder how many children have freaked out while staying at Circus Circus! Did you see Killer Klowns from Outer Space?

The Strip

Here’s a shot of the Las Vegas Strip from yesterday via the Sony RX100 Mark 7. The smog was basically non-existent yesterday which was nice for a change. I give the camera yet another two-thumbs up. What about you?

The Next Set

Here is another set from the Sony RX100 Mark 7. Much of the same things I’ve posted before unfortunately, but it’s a nice test for the camera. I plan to take the camera and my tripod into the desert tomorrow for a few landscape photos, maybe I can find some Golden Mantled Ground Squirrels in Calico Basin too. For the most part, I’m very impressed with how well these photos cleaned up in processing! I almost feel like a pro, haha. 10 photos in this set.

New York, Las Vegas

Just one image here, the rollercoaster at New Yor New York is seen behind a good-looking structure which I don’t remember its name. Yet another drive-by photo on Las Vegas Boulevard.
