Would You Enter?

This is one of many drainage and flood control channels around Las Vegas. Sadly, people are living in these channels near the Las Vegas Strip and elsewhere in the city.

This is sad and very dangerous too, a flash flood can happen during monsoon season. This year’s monsoon rains once again never came though. Would you enter the gaping hole?

Less Hazy But…

Not quite all gone yet. The coming winter should see the air clear up over the valley which will be nice for a change but for now, it’s sunny and ninety-five degrees. How was your weekend? If you are wondering what has reopened for business on the Las Vegas Strip, have a look at this link and this link for starters.

Frankly, I say it’s still a bit too soon for this. Have people forgotten how many people have died from this deadly virus? Is Common Sense still on holiday? I have to say yeah, it left America long ago…

This Ski Doo’s For You!

Last night, I came across this fun old TV commercial for the Elan model Ski Doo, a sled that members of my family owned in the early 1970s when our family traveled to northern lower Michigan almost every weekend to ride hundreds of miles on our sleds, and always pulling a trailer sled that had all of the food and booze for a nice campfire late in the day. Those days of riding were great fun, so many wonderful memories! Sadly, most of those family members, aunts, and uncles have passed. They are gone now, yet they still and will live on in my heart.

In Valor There’s Hope

Here are the last photos from yesterday at the Southern Nevada Police memorial. I try to avoid shooting in Portrait mode because of the vertical length of the photos, but sometimes it’s the best way to capture your subject. Portrait style photos never work well on Instagram either. According to the National Weather Service, Las Vegas will see 101 degrees today.
