These photos, taken while stuck at a traffic light, show that only the parking garage is left, the rest of the casino and 100-room hotel were recently demolished. I have seen the place being torn down while driving by on the way to my doctor’s office. Simply put, the pandemic killed this place. This link will tell you everything you may want to know about this place. The pandemic has put plenty of smaller businesses out of business here and everywhere else od course, very sad.
This is the actual aircraft in the linked article, please follow the link if you are interested. This tiny 1957 Cessna 172 was a mighty little aircraft in its day, I think that you will enjoy its story and history.
There are many functions in my photo software apps that I never use, here is one of them. The Vegas Strip looks like its buildings are drunk and falling over. Gee, how much does this happen in Sin City with its tourists? Sunny and just 69 chilly degrees are in store for the city today, brrrr! Click the pic.
Taking a quick ride to the store this afternoon, I stopped by my favorite place to photograph the strip. The thunderstorm beyond was causing flash flooding in Searchlight which is well south of Las Vegas on the 95 freeway. The storm was moving north, I haven’t had a flash flood warning for my area of the valley yet. I used the Nikkor 200mm lens on the NikonZ50 body.
Molly’s is just one of a few independent gaming companies around the valley, to me, they are mom-and-pop operations which is something I support, but not the gambling aspect. In my nine years here I have deposited not one red cent into any machine, my money stays in the bank! Partly cloudy and 108 are forecast for today, yet another scorching day. The tree company will be here at 7:30 this morning to prune my palm trees, finally! Pictures are coming of course. Oh, they are here now! Here are some photos, much better!
Imagine what could happen should this larger-than-life horse actually gets loose and runs onto Charleston Boulevard? The carnage… He’s at the north entrance to a large and very high-end neighborhood. The pigeon is giving you a great glamor shot, isn’t it?
The photo of the rollercoaster locate at New York, New York is also about three years old. The high temperature today will reach only 99 degrees and believe me, you can feel the difference. Have a great Sunday!
