The Clark County Museum

Hi all, thanks for stopping by. I drove to Henderson this morning to get some photos of this museum. I’ve never visited this place until today and I should say that the museum in terms of photography was terrible indoors! It’s rather dark inside but also very interesting. I spent about thirty minutes walking through the exhibits.

Outside was a different story of course in terms of the lighting. I have a great photoset of a steam engine coming up. The rest of the museum is outdoors and has original buildings and homes that were moved to this location long ago for the museum and have their own street. The cost to enter the museum is dirt cheap.

Just one dollar for me since I am 55+! Younger folk are just two bucks, big deal right? My final thoughts on my short visit – it was a 25+ mile drive one way and overall I must say that I was a bit disappointed with the museum both in terms of it’s location (really far from the Strip) and it’s total content. It just seems to need more items.

The main Adobe building that contains so much of Nevada history is clean, well maintained and staffed by very friendly and knowledgeable people.

By the way, once again, the damned SD card in my Nikon was telling me that it was Full. Ummm, no. It couldn’t have been more than a tiny bit full as it was empty when I left home. Strike Two, that SD card is going in the trash. Hence, I lost a few photo opportunities. Thanks so much, you cheap ass SD card!

No More Droning Along

Yesterday I sold my DJI Spark drone. As with a car or other certain items, I lost some money on the deal. Instant depreciation. So why did I sell the little aircraft? I was and still am disappointed. Disappointed with the weather as this winter has been the windiest winter I’ve seen in my five years here in Las Vegas.

It’s just too bloody windy in Las Vegas for such a small drone. Also, I have been fearful to fly the drone because of the incredible, and rather ridiculous to a degree, flight restrictions. No, you can’t fly here! No, you can’t fly in the BLM Scenic Loop area! I’ve received glares that tell me to piss off while flying the drone. Enough.

The sole purpose for my purchasing this drone was airborne photography. Sure, it took decent photos and video considering the little itty bitty camera onboard. But, it ‘s not going to keep up with my Nikon, it’s lenses and ND filtres obviously. So, that’s the end 0f my drone days. And I’m OK with that too. All the photos and video were saved.

The End.
