Out Of Business

These pedicure chairs used to be in the salon where I had my feet taken care of every two weeks or so thanks to Diabetes. Apparently the business has closed, how sad for the owners and we customers. All because of something so small we can’t see it. Bullshit! This situation will devastate millions of small businesses which I see as the core of what makes the United States what it has been for so long. When this is done, America will have a new face.

Sunny Fronds

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. 🌴🌵🌞

People Are Out and About

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. 🌴🌞😎

People Out and About

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.

The World is Still Beautiful…

Today I set out for a few items which I did find, then headed back home for more self-imposed isolation. It was wonderful to get the heck out of the house for a change of scenery! As you can see there are many folks out and about today, in the next set I drove through the park and was amazed at how many folks were out and about today. The world is still beautiful!

If you noticed the banding in my photos recently you’ve got a good eye. This is because I now reduce image sizes way down to around 200kb rather than upload them at more than twice that size which has already saved a ton of storage space in my account. Sorry, I think this sucks as it’s not displaying my amateur photographs as well as I would to see them on this blog.

Grabbing That Photo Opportunity

Last night after dark an ambulance pulled up a couple doors down from my home. This has happened a few times since I’ve lived here which is of course not a good thing. As I watched the strobe lights on the vehicle flash through the glass blocks in the kitchen I saw a possible opportunity for some abstract images. Several photos were taken, I chose this small lot of five to process and upload. I certainly hope whoever the ambulance did pick up is doing well today.

Staying In, Staying Home

Here’s a small piece of my self-imposed quarantine: End Table Items. Two way radios, my phone and some water. Oh, and a weather station. To my left is the TV controller, an iPad and the MacBook Pro. So this is being stuck at home eh? Obviously things could be so much worse.

Empty City Streets

I took a quick ride to the beer store this morning, it’s so odd and a bit creepy to see these streets like this that are usually bustling with Las Vegas Locals like myself. I slathered up with hand sanitiser before going into the store, and before getting back into my truck and touching anything inside. These are scary times, my friends. Stay safe, stay home if you can.
