Boulder City, Nevada 2017

Digging deep into the old files vault, I grabbed these not-so-sharp photos from the Nikon D3300 to post this afternoon. There are more photos than just these from that day. I purchased the many Navajo Pottery pieces you may have seen on the blog in Boulder City. I should take a ride back down there to see if that store is still there and take a walk on the pedestrian bridge if it’s open. Last I checked, you can visit Hoover Dam with restrictions in place of course. I’d like to try the Nikon Z6 there too. Are we fed up yet with the crap this damn virus has caused?

Hoover Dam and Lake Mead

Here are some goodies from a bit back. Photos will never truly capture the real size and beauty of our Hoover Dam which powers not only Las Vegas but other states in the American Southwest. I intended to take another half day trip to Boulder City over the winter but never made it, bummer.

When you walk on the dam itself, have a look over the edges and see the intake towers, you’ll soon realise how magnificent a structure it really is. And it was constructed in an era that never had the kinds of construction tools that are available today, the workers were brave and great Americans too.

Trains at Boulder City, Nevada

I was in Boulder City today for the sole purpose of visiting one specific store which is a mom-and-pop business that sells nothing but authentic Navajo and other tribal art and much more. I love this store, the last time I was there was about four  years ago when I was married but have drove past it many times since then. And for the record, I spent way too much!

I will post photos of these beautiful pieces of Navajo art starting tomorrow after I get some decent photos of the art. It’s late, the sun has said goodnight so I hope you’ll enjoy the photos once I capture them and process them tomorrow. I’m an old train buff, stopped to get these photos for my friend Dave in Michigan though. He’s a mega train buff! I also have more trains to post as well, so please stick around!

All photos are from my Nikon D3300 and Nikor 35mm lens.
