Sunny Fronds

I spent some time in the backyard today soaking up the wonderful 82 degree breeze and sunshine. My Latino neighbours behind me playing some traditional Latino music but not too loud for a change.

Other neighbours outdoors working on their yards also enjoying the sunshine. A quick chat about my electric leaf blower from much more than six foot apart. My windows open allowing a soft warm breeze through the house.

I thought why not grab the Z6 and take a few more redundant palm tree photos? Another wonderful day in my little piece of Las Vegas. 🌴🌡🌞

People Are Out and About

Las Vegas is a city of about two million people, many of them are still out and about doing their daily things. My drug store and pharmacy now has signs taped to the floor with blue tape forming a line with a six foot spacing. Why six foot? Overall things seem very much normal around my area of the city which I’m grateful for but let’s keep things in perspective, be safe.

Today is sunny with 82 degrees. 🌴🌞😎

Sunny Blue

Good morning from sunny Las Vegas, today we have full sunshine and 81 wonderful degrees on tap! It will cool to the seventies after today which isn’t bad at all.

More of My Backyard

Are ya sick of seeing my simple, basic backyard yet? Honestly I’m quite bored as are so many I’m sure. I even scuffle hoed the few weeds I found both front and back today. It’s almost as though I’m thankful for the stupid weeds that give me something to do! Pathetic eh?

I have far more than enough photography from long ago to keep this blog going but I don’t wanna bore people either with old photos or the same old shit either… I’m wanting to take a couple photo trips too, one is the Hoover Dam, the other is driving all the way down to Laughlin, Nevada along the Colorado River. Actual, real photo opportunities!

Exciting photo of my chimney!

Limp

Or flaccid if you prefer. No high winds in the valley today which is nice, I snapped this photo after leaving the bank this morning. I tried setting up the online transfer thing Saturday with a bank employee, it didn’t work so I’ll di it the old fashioned way. That blue sky is beautiful!

People Out and About

It’s both nice to see people at the park and not. Should people be doing this? Are they not taking this dangerous situation seriously? I shouldn’t be be out either.

That’s a bit of snow atop 6500+ foot Gass Peak far away.

The World is Still Beautiful…

Today I set out for a few items which I did find, then headed back home for more self-imposed isolation. It was wonderful to get the heck out of the house for a change of scenery! As you can see there are many folks out and about today, in the next set I drove through the park and was amazed at how many folks were out and about today. The world is still beautiful!

If you noticed the banding in my photos recently you’ve got a good eye. This is because I now reduce image sizes way down to around 200kb rather than upload them at more than twice that size which has already saved a ton of storage space in my account. Sorry, I think this sucks as it’s not displaying my amateur photographs as well as I would to see them on this blog.

Night Palm

These photos were taken well after dark last night, the glow on the trunk is the low wattage bulb used to light the backyard at night. Should turn it off next time I try this. I actually used the new tripod I purchased when getting the new Nikon Z6 recently. I’m surprised these photos are a clear as they are considering I don’t know how to do night photography…
