I got the Tom and Jerry image from my Michigan buddy this morning. Wondering what to do with it, I found a leftover sunset from a few days ago hiding in a folder on my desktop. But hey now, I loved watching Tom and Jerry cartoons as a little boy in the 1960s! Gladly, I’m not as rickety as Tom and Jerry are in this image. Yay for 21st-century technology!
From 2018, I offer you a real mixed batch of photos this afternoon. The desert photos are from the east side of Las Vegas Valley, one looking down into the valley, the other looking east into the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. The photo of the Whizzer bike was taken with the iPhone on a summer trip back home to Michigan. The couple doing the pee-pee dance is inside a Jimmy John’s restaurant. And the Luxor Hotel photo was of course taken on the Las Vegas Strip.
Have you visited the beautiful Valley Of Fire? Located many miles north of Las Vegas, take the fifteen freeway north out of the city and watch for the sign, exit to your right. There is a fuel station there along with slot machines of course, and a few food options. The place is always selling CB Radios and related components since it’s along a major freeway.
I plan on making the drive up there when our summer heat goes away, I haven’t used the Nikon Z6 out there yet. I’ll take the 50mm and the 24/70mm lens.
Here are a few older photos from my collection in 2017. Did I ever tell you that after my third and final divorce, I deleted gigs of photography taken during that marriage? That is five years of photography. Why? Pain. Anger, Anguish. Sorrow. And some of those feelings are still with me today regardless of my certainly making some stupid choices. In retrospect, I am actually grateful to be a single man again. It’s wonderful to have full control over each area of my life.
