The screen shot of the National Weather Service website’s forecast for Las Vegas shows a very different weather pattern for the next several days. Honestly, I don’t want the rain here as badly as it’s needed here in the desert southwest. It reminds me of the daily gloomy conditions of Michigan too much… Rain Rain go the hell away. Don’t come back any other day.
Blue doesn’t always mean sad. This blue is happy! 😎🌴
The other day Sandy was commenting on the faux tortoise in my backyard, it reminded her of the soccer call in the Tom Hanks movie where he’s stranded alone on an island. So I’ve named him Wilson! Now Wilson being totally faux means he doesn’t move, right? This morning I noticed that he has somehow moved to the faux grass! OM Gosh, is my home haunted?
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. 🌴🌞😎
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!
And I suspect this home will continue to be just that. It pisses me off that something humans cannot see, smell taste or touch has shut almost everything down. Evil.
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 yesterday around mid afternoon after a few rain showers had moved out of the valley. The palm tree looks really nice at this angle doesn’t it? This morning I made a food, water and beer run and found good success at a local chain market store. I added more water to the supply I have stashed and bought several new food items to add to my stockpile. Wow, how things have changed. I believe this situation will pass in time. Be safe my friends!
this is another derivative photo, it’s a bee on a flower I photographed a few weeks back at the park. Gently processed in iColorama, it looks as though it’s animated or a painting to me. 😬
Taken yesterday this is the second set of very empty streets in my area of the valley. Creepy.
I’m so bored that I’ve downloaded a trial version of some photo software! Not tried it with a color image yet. This sign is located in Downtown Summerlin and is an older photo.
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.
