The Wine Tower

The wine tower is located in the Grape Street Restaurant in Downtown Summerlin. I ordered a chicken sandwich and waited 25 minutes then I left. They have good food as I have eaten there before but what happened this time?

I left a message for these folks on their Instagram account, they apologised and gave me three names to contact the next time I come in. A free meal? Well, I’m not looking for that. The next image is the One Summerlin building.

The goofy Booger King crown photo is mine, I took it while waiting for that scarce junk food meal I allow myself occasionally. I added the McDeath arches since one crown didn’t have a label. Sunny and 66 degrees are on for today, no time for a bike ride today though…

Uploading Issues

Sometimes I just don’t understand the little glitches or issues with technology today. The new iPhone 15 I picked up yesterday works perfectly including the 48-megapixel lens. I have not been able to select multiple images to be uploaded to my cloud storage. I get a check your network connections message.

The nice folks at my local T Mobile store didn’t have a solution, but the guys at the Downtown Summerlin Apple Store did. The iPhone 12 had no issues. Solutions: Upload up to five at once or less, or connect the iPhone to the new MacBook Pro with a cable. That’s very odd, isn’t it?

These are the Summerlin Peaks seen on this cool and windy day with the iPhone 15.

It’s Been 12 Years?

This morning I received an email from WordPress telling me I registered with them 12 years ago. Already? There was a little badge or something like that but I can’t find it now, oh well. Twelve years is a long time to be in the blogging game, isn’t it?

Las Vegas Photoblog has been on the web since 2016 which was the year of my last and final divorce, never again. On a different subject, my dad has returned to the hospital with fluid in his lungs again. This has been a recurring theme for some time now but he is likely going home today, Amen!

His heart is in end-stage failure so this is not a surprise which really sucks. Prayers for him are welcome.

I visited Downtown Summerlin the other day to swap out my iPad Air for a current 6th-generation iPad Mini, and I really like it! Smaller, lighter and it does the exact same thing of course. It cost me a few bucks to trade up though, the Apple Store gave me a $40 trade-in value for the old iPad.

The MacBook laptop may be next, I bought a larger version because the smaller version was not available at the time. And, the iPhone 12? It’s paid for and works fine, I’ll keep it.

Agave’ and Waterfall

Here are a few more photos from yesterday’s quick visit to Downtown Summerlin for you. I had a nice chat with my sister on the phone this afternoon and I feel bad for not being up in Michigan to help her with her yard work. It’s tough to not feel guilty but I’ve done nothing wrong of course.

Small areas of Michigan are being hit with the dangerous wildfire smoke from the Canadian wildfires, the smoke is drowning New York City, WashinKton, and other cities on the east coast. I feel bad for these folks and it’s nobody’s fault except for the possibility that some freak touched off these wildfires on purpose.

If it’s a lightning strike that started the fires, that’s nature doing what nature does.

A Waterfall at Downtown Summerlin

The waterfall at Downtown Summerlin is very tall and feels nice on a hot day when the spray flies up into the air. A high of just 81 degrees and a 30% chance for rain are up for today and man do we need the rain! Maybe I can get some rain photos and videos. How is your weather today?

Seven More Photos from Downtown Summerlin This Morning

There are several more photos from today that I will post tomorrow morning. The wind has suddenly become very wild this afternoon, I can hear it whipping past the house on either side as I sit here writing this, I miss those big windstorms we have during the winter months…

An Impromptu Shoot At Downtown Summerlin

After picking up my meds at the pharmacy I decided to head west to the Jimmy John’s restaurant for a turkey sub this morning, delicious! I was about one-quarter mile from Downtown Summerlin so off I went. One big mistake I made today was heading out without the 60mm lens.

The 211mm lens on the new Sony A7C was just too much lens for shooting in an area like this so I was very limited. I stopped by the Apple Store again to let myself salivate over the new iMac series, I want but don’t really need! It wasn’t quite 90 degrees so the upper 80s and a nice breeze made a nice walk this morning.

Sunny Summerlin

Here are some older photos of Downtown Summerlin. The size discrepancy of the photos is because I stopped using the 1024×768 format for the 1500×1000 for Nikon photos, and 1500×844 for iPhone photos. Can you tell that there is water over those rocks? By the way, I’ve decided to dock the Pedego bike for now because of the near-sunburn I got a while back is such that I better stay out of the sun for extended periods. I stuffed the bike into a spare bedroom, so sad! 😂
