The Las Vegas Strip With Distant Thunderstorm

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.

Mom and Pop Gaming

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!

Horse On The Loose

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!

The Old Zoom Lens

I can kind of kick myself in the bum for selling the lens that captured these much closer and cleaner-looking photos of the Strip. Another, longer zoom lens than I have now will of course set me back a bunch of green. Oops! The current lens is a Nikkor 18-140mm size. Oops. 😂
