I spent some time in the backyard today soaking up the wonderful 82 degree breeze and sunshine. My Latino neighbours behind me playing some traditional Latino music but not too loud for a change.
Other neighbours outdoors working on their yards also enjoying the sunshine. A quick chat about my electric leaf blower from much more than six foot apart. My windows open allowing a soft warm breeze through the house.
I thought why not grab the Z6 and take a few more redundant palm tree photos? Another wonderful day in my little piece of Las Vegas. 🌴🌵🌞
Las Vegas is a city of about two million people, many of them are still out and about doing their daily things. My drug store and pharmacy now has signs taped to the floor with blue tape forming a line with a six foot spacing. Why six foot? Overall things seem very much normal around my area of the city which I’m grateful for but let’s keep things in perspective, be safe.
Today is sunny with 82 degrees. 🌴🌞😎
In a great big valley, this is my little space, my little oasis in the desert. An oasis in troubled times… But these troubled days will pass.
Are ya sick of seeing my simple, basic backyard yet? Honestly I’m quite bored as are so many I’m sure. I even scuffle hoed the few weeds I found both front and back today. It’s almost as though I’m thankful for the stupid weeds that give me something to do! Pathetic eh?
I have far more than enough photography from long ago to keep this blog going but I don’t wanna bore people either with old photos or the same old shit either… I’m wanting to take a couple photo trips too, one is the Hoover Dam, the other is driving all the way down to Laughlin, Nevada along the Colorado River. Actual, real photo opportunities!
Faux Green Grass
Exciting photo of my chimney!
The desert has some nice curves too. 😬🌵
Sometimes also known as State Line, this little town is right on the California border and has a couple casinos with restaurants and a couple attractions too. Access is simple via the I-15 freeway. Primm is about thirty or so minutes south of Las Vegas. Visit Primm Valley Resorts.
It’s both nice to see people at the park and not. Should people be doing this? Are they not taking this dangerous situation seriously? I shouldn’t be be out either.
That’s a bit of snow atop 6500+ foot Gass Peak far away.
These photos were taken well after dark last night, the glow on the trunk is the low wattage bulb used to light the backyard at night. Should turn it off next time I try this. I actually used the new tripod I purchased when getting the new Nikon Z6 recently. I’m surprised these photos are a clear as they are considering I don’t know how to do night photography…
This iPhone video was taken yesterday in my backyard, the gusts were up to fifty miles per hour! That wind is supposed to continue today although it’s currently calm. Those Isobars are getting further apart apparently. These windstorms can last up to three days.
