Tourists In Grayscale

Going back to 2017, the cluster of tourists are standing along Las Vegas Boulevard on the Vegas Strip, waiting to cross one of the many (and dangerous) streets. Do yourself a favor, don’t stare at your phone screen! I see people do this almost every day anywhere in the city, and it’s a damn dumb thing to do when crossing on the zebra crossing.

The other photo shows a very common sight – tourists taking photos of each other at the large rock with Red Rock Canyon inscribed on it. You will see license plates from all over the States and Canada parked here. Thank you for your patronage, we locals visit this beautiful place frequently. So much better than the Vegas Strip, and cheaper too!

Many Vegas Locals avoid the Strip, no thanks!

Just West Of Town

Just west of town in the open desert as I call it is where I ended up this morning. It’s that wonderful time of year when the summer heat is fading away, and the nights are in the mid to upper 60s. I took a short walk too around Calico Basin. I snapped around sixty photos today, here are just three to begin this little series. These photos are from 50mm Nikkor.

Different Places And Times

This is a little medley of times and places in my life. The Pontiac sign is at my dad’s mancave in Michigan, the dog with the meme was taken in the driveway where I lived in Michigan. Both photos are several years old. The donkey photo and the Joshua tree photos are from around two years ago west of Las Vegas.

That groovy color swirl is actually the glass block window in my kitchen, who uses glass blocks these days? The photo of my backyard is about two years old as the African Sumac tree is still in the backyard. I despised that messy tree! There’s a Sago Palm there now. Time just keeps on rolling along, doesn’t it?
