Boulder City 2018

I’m pulling out the old stuff on this extremely windy Tuesday morning, it’s gusting to near fifty miles per hour and my house is making the occasional creaking sound. Partly cloudy and 88 degrees are forecast for today, still a good day but too windy for a bike ride. I haven’t been to Hoover Dam since before the pandemic and should head down there soon, it’s such a beautiful area for photography. Happy Tuesday!

Near Hoover Dam, 2018

Good morning folks, here are some oldies pulled from my archives. I haven’t been to the dam since before the virus came around so maybe it’s time for a ride down there again. Sunshine and 86 degrees are forecast for the valley today, Saturday will see 90 degrees, our scorching summer heat is officially on its way back!

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?

A Past Visit to Hoover Dam

These photos were taken from the Mike O’Calllagahn – Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge. I used the older Nikon D3300 body and the zoom lens. The damn is open again for viewing, but with limited access. Photos never do the dam any justice as you really can’t grasp the sheer size of Hoover Dam without actually being there!

Art Deco

Here are a couple photos from maybe three years ago at the beautiful Hoover Dam via the old Nikon D3300 body. Not very good photos but you get the idea! Art Deco is a style that I wish would come back in vogue, it’s a beautiful style of architecture and art from what was in some ways, a better, vanished time. I miss those visits to the dam. Read about the figures here.

Boulder City, Nevada

These photos are from about two years ago on one of my visits to beautiful Hoover Dam. No dam photos but I crossed the big bridge in Arizona and turned around. Digging deep into my archives, I meant to get back out there for more photos but not now. Photos via Nikon D3300.
