End of The Tivoli Series

I’m sure you’ve had enough of my Tivoli Village photos for a while, I know I have too! Let’s move on to something different, and thanks for putting up with my love for Tivoli Village. I have two ideas for the next set of photos. I also want to thank you for continuing to visit my meager blog. There aren’t many followers, those that still do never come around. It just is what it is…

Setting Up The Camera

A local TV station was setting up for an interview with one of the vendors at the Farmers Market this day. I purchased a quart of strawberries and I gotta say these berries were so incredibly sweet! I mean, melt in your mouth sweet! I didn’t take a photo of them, bummer. The ice cream cone and fancy coffee images are again murals that I’ve cropped heavily. The restaurant is always busy during Covid where people aren’t wearing masks when they could be. I give that place a wide birth…

Plenty of Processing

Last night I went to work processing the last photos from another (too soon) visit to Tivoli Village. I wasn’t into driving out of town that day for some landscapes. The fruity photo is a mural that I cropped everything out of sans the fruit.

The sailing ship is an inlay on a wall along the sidewalk, again all of the data is cropped out sans the subject. The others are more of our blue sky (yay!) and some architecture with large palm trees.

Today’s Vegas weather is sunshine and fifty-seven degrees. Later this week, the valley will see temperatures in the low seventies. This is a bit above normal for Las Vegas but hey, I’ll take it! Click a photo, they get bigger…

Shot Through The Glass

This very large vase is behind glass inside a store. I backed up a bit for the shot using the 200mm lens and flipping the camera’s view screen out so I could see the subject. Another One-Shot Wonder as I think of them. Aurora HDR really pulled the many vibrant colors out of the photo. My photography and this blog have helped me through this terrible virus situation so much!

The Monument, The Guardian

Before processing, the text on the monument was not visible for an obvious reason in the photo, I shot the photo this way on purpose. Thanks very much to Aurora HDR, and Photoscape X, I was able to pull the text out of the darkness.

The HDR also pulled the clouds out too. The hairy dude on the wall is to the left of the door to the men’s room. There is a female version too, I didn’t photograph that one. The word Guardian was what came to mind thinking about its location.

Spitting Horses at Tivoli

This lovely fountain makes a really relaxing sound with all of the water splashing about. The BW is an attempt to make a not-so-good photo a little better, and yet another photo of Queens Ridge across Rampart Boulevard.
