In this image, I am over ten miles west of the Las Vegas Strip looking east. There is about one-third of the strip that isn’t in the image to the south or to the right from this location on a slope on the western side of the valley. Behind me is the Lamdre’ Mountains and Red Rock Canyon.
My roof and our beautiful blue sky over Las Vegas. This city sees 300+ days per year of sunshine! The most exciting photo you’ll see all day haha! But that deeeep blue…
A bit of fun with multiple applications this morning, trying to make a dud photo not a dud!
Taken yesterday on a quick ride, two human buddies, and two equine buddies! It was great to feel the warm breeze rolling through the cab, to feel the sunshine on my face while driving…
A bit ago I headed out for some needed supplies. Along the way, I took a different route to my destination via a local park where I was amazed to see the park full of people enjoying what is truly a beautiful day here. What shocked me though were the two separate playground areas packed full of children! And zero masks in sight. Wow. I darn well wore my mask into the store!
Good morning from Las Vegas Valley!
These old-timers are in a little white tin bucket on my kitchen table. Last year when I was furnishing this place, I traveled around the city looking for specific items. This piece came from an antique store that is sadly gone now but not due to the coronavirus, that killed my favorite vitamin store. I’ll not use these old-timers! Can you tell that I’m struggling for content here?
I am surrounded by my favorite trees at my place of quarantine, love it! Yesterday afternoon I took a bunch of random and goofy photos of which I’ve finished working on this morning. I long for the days when we can all go out and about safely. Those days will come again soon…
Tropical Parkway is an east-west road in the northwest area of Las Vegas Valley. If you’ve followed my blog long enough then you might remember the shredded car at the very far west end of this road which I strongly suspect was stolen. Bastards.
Heading east when you pass Durango Road, you will find some great shopping areas and wonderful restaurants. I purchased my leather Lazy Boy couches at the Lazy Boy store there. The area is easily accessible via the 95 freeway too.
These older Nikon photos are not too sharp which I seriously don’t like, not my style. I expect more of my photos today. Looking back at my photography with the good old Nikon D3300 I can see now how fuzzy they are compared to the new Nikon Z6 series with no mirror.
Live and learn…
I’m really looking forward to the days ahead when I can safely get back to my sometimes daily drives around Las Vegas or in the open desert as I call it. A day run down to Laughlin and Needles. A day run to Death Valley. The Valley of Fire, or perhaps north to Tonopah. Let’s roll!
No mellow yellow, just screaming yellow. 😎
Another point-and-shoot photo from whenever it was taken.
Taken at our McCarran International Airport, I was almost under the approach path when this beauty flew overhead. I have dozens of airliner photos in the archive where I am directly under the aircraft just before touchdown. One of which hangs on a wall in my home. Flight is fabulous!
Some dolt painted space creatures on this van at the local grocer. Nice work, asswipes! Anyway, I went to the grocer for a few items and came out with much more which is usually what happens. I was pleasantly surprised to find that many of those very hot items including water and bun wad are returning to ‘normal’ levels.
Translation: people are stopping the freaking out. The one thing that honestly speaking pisses me off is how many people were not wearing masks! Why the hell would a mother with four to six-year-old children take her babies in this store with zero masks on them, or herself! She’s a very stupid woman, I’m not sorry for saying this either.
As I have said in this space so many times – Common Sense took a permanent holiday from America a long time ago.
Have you ever seen a limo like this one? I bet it’s worth a hefty sum eh?
This photo is from the Spring Mountain Ranch State Park just outside of Las Vegas.
The WX thing means weather, it’s gonna heat up again soon! It’s been cooler lately though.
The Desert Spoon is a great choice for accenting your home landscape or around businesses. The home I owned here with the ex had several of these plants around the property. I recommend wearing very thick gloves and shirts when pruning the plant as its thorns are many and very close together, ouch!
This flower I do know! I’ve mentioned before recently that I do not like these damn flowers as they are toxic to pets, and make a hell of a mess in my backyard when the flowers finally croak.
Gladly, my neighbor very recently cut them down along our common border, or block wall actually as that is what we use here instead of chain fences. I’m so grateful that I let him use my rubbish bin to help him get that crap out of his backyard that much faster! Thank you, neighbor!
This is an older photo from about four years ago, taken along Las Vegas Boulevard near the northern end of the Las Vegas Strip. That Bonanza gift shop is still there today with its 99 cent souvenirs. Would you like to have a 99 cent souvenir? I didn’t think so but I’ll try some food.
Taken last night well after dark, you see Wilson sneaking around still looking for a way out! 😂
Local yes, but not at all close to my home! just some random photos from yesterday where I came upon the fun bunch of geese, goslings, and ducks. Did I ever mention that I love ducks?
You’ll not see this in Michigan! ❤️
Since it never snows in the valley except for a very tiny bit of flurries, our road crews can work all year round which should mean they get things done more quickly? Not the case, this area has been under repairs for several weeks now. Why?
It’s the same thing with the new freeway overpasses over the ninety-five freeway north of me a few miles, ongoing for a few years now. Again, why? I’m no road engineer but have a brain that sees something odd. Perhaps it’s all about job security?
Here are two more sunset photos from the other night as the sun goes down.
Ducks, Geese, and Goslings all in one big mix. ❤️
