The Mandalay Bay

This photo via the Nikon is from yesterday when I was just East of the Strip on a mission. I’ve posted this unique building before, this time I went for a different flavour and texture. I added some texture to the image via iColorama on my iPad. The Cloud is so great for moving my photos around to three different devices! So here we are on yet another Sunday, where do the days and time go so fast? It ain’t fair man!

Let It Go…

I’m going to be perfectly honest here (not that I’m not honest with you always), this Michael Jackson Tribute Concert as it’s billed kind of irks me. I remember jamming Jackson’s music on my turntable in my bedroom years ago when living at home with the folks yet. He had a fabulous career and was a hell of a performer. But good Lord, the man died terribly in 2009. Let him go, stop using his name to make money. So cheesy man…

The Angry Canyon

Heading home this morning from a trip to just East of the Strip, I noticed the canyon to my West was looking wet and angry, a rain squall was moving into the area. What’s odd though is that it all seemed to just stall and stay out there just West of my area of town. I didn’t feel like driving out there though so no decent photos were taken. Just this one, processed to look old and maybe a bit angry. I hope your weekend is good!

From The Little Ridge

I haven’t used all of the photos from my attempt to hike up a small ridge near my place the other day. I don’t like the way some of these images processed. The colours just aren’t nearly correct but here they are anyway. I want to try this same walk again soon as it’s just plain old good for my fat old bum to get out there and be active! More to come from this set today.

Around Vegas

Palms, Pines & Rocks

Five shots from yesterday with the Nikon and 70-300mm lens. That hike up the small ridge didn’t make my legs sore at all which really surprised me as I’m by no means in top condition! The BW photo is looking East toward Downtown Summerlin, the main office building is seen along with the flood channel retention basin in front of it. Two photos are looking toward Red Rock Canyon proper and the palms -n- pines are up the street from my humble apartment. More to come. Happy Thursday to you!

Fossilised

About 200 million years ago, sea shell critters laid down and died on the ocean floor here. That’s old! It’s always so amazing to find these imprints of long dead creatures. What would the area known as Nevada have looked like then? Under water! Today, our beautiful Mount Charleston stands at 11,916 feet high above sea level. Time changes everything, nothing will ever stay the same…
