Under The Cone Two

This is one photo processed differently, fully zoomed right into the top-center of the cone using the Nikkor 24/200mm lens. Oddly, I have zero photos of the exterior of this structure. I think the best possible place I could get a decent photo would be from somewhere inside the very nearby Red Rock Hotel and Casino, perhaps from a hotel room or the roof which would be best. Again the physics in play here are fascinating!

Big Views, Cacti and A Closed Play Area

Here’s another children’s play structure that has been locked down. I hate this damn virus, it’s stolen so much from all of us. Just don’t go playing around in the Barrel Cacti, children… The view of the foothills was taken from the upper deck walkway, looking west. The two-fifteen freeway is in front of those tightly-packed homes. That’s how we do it here, my home is very close to my neighbors on either side. Squish!

Really Big Beans

Those really big coffee beans are actually really big, highly polished rocks. They were located in other areas on this upper deck in Downtown Summerlin. I’d like to know how they were all moved to this location? The desert forecast for today is partly sunny and ninety-three degrees. The eighties will be here next week.

At Downtown Summerlin Today Three

Here are a few more photos that were taken yesterday, I hope your day will be as sunny as it is here in Las Vegas today! I have no plans for the day except the pot of fresh chili I whipped up at seven AM today, yummy!

At Downtown Summerlin Today Two

Here is round two from Summerlin this morning, I hope you enjoy these. While I was there, I sat down for a bit and called my dad back in Michigan, we had a nice conversation as always. In the last couple of days, I’ve been missing my family more and really needed to hear a familiar voice.

I worry about my dad so much as he is ninety-two years young.

I feel like this damned virus is stealing time that should be spent with him and my children and sister as I haven’t been able to make my usual two trips up there each summer. Of course, millions of people are in the same or similar situations, but that’s not much consolation is it.

At Downtown Summerlin Today

Good afternoon! I got out of the house once again today as cabin fever is closing in around my throat you could say. It’s just too damn beautiful outside to be stuck indoors. I snapped around sixty-five photos there today, here is the first set. I hope you like these, it’s my first time using the Nikon Z6 in this location.

Sun Blocker

This sunshade is really huge, I wonder if it tries to lift off? The management at Downtown Summerlin wouldn’t dig that! I used the Impresso application on this photo, looks good!

A Downtown Summerlin Memory

A very nice photo in my view, taken I think two years ago. This is a wonderful outdoor mall with tons of retailers and restaurants. It was so nice to simply wander this place, people watch, take some photos and have a bite of delicious pizza. A bit too greasy, but so delicious! Or, sample other tasty delights. Number three and I used to wander this place, today, I go it alone.

Life goes on regardless, what matters most doesn’t change…

The photo is visibly degraded to save storage space, thanks, WP.
