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. 🌴🌞😎

In The Desert

“In the desert you can remember your name ’cause there ain’t no one for to give you no pain”

I love this old song by America, good memories – good years. This set of photos are all rather old and taken both around the city and also in the Valley of Fire State Park as well as the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. I am digging very deep into my archives to pull out photos like this! I can see the difference between the Nikon D3300 and the Nikon Z6 bodies, the image clarity is very much cleaner, sharper these days. I hope you are well and safe!

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.

Clouds Touch The Earth

Here are some old photos from one of my day trips to the little town of Pahrump, Nevada. The quality of these photos isn’t so good both because of yours truly, and the old Nikon D3300 body in my opinion. The mirrorless Nikon Z6 is a vast improvement, thank you, Nikon!

Palmy Skies

These photos were taken yesterday around mid afternoon after a few rain showers had moved out of the valley. The palm tree looks really nice at this angle doesn’t it? This morning I made a food, water and beer run and found good success at a local chain market store. I added more water to the supply I have stashed and bought several new food items to add to my stockpile. Wow, how things have changed. I believe this situation will pass in time. Be safe my friends!

Sun Valley

Also known as Las Vegas Valley of course, I’ve captured these views before but these are processed differently. The views are worth putting up with the traffic and other things.

The Lone Cormorant

These photos were taken early today, I love the feathers of the Cormorant. Great color and so shiny! The water even looks inviting doesn’t it? It reminds me of the warm summer days of my youth in Michigan living on the lake. Memories always cherished. ❀️

A Moody Sunset

Lovely isn’t it? Gladly today saw zero rain and partly sunny conditions with a nice breeze. T Shirt and shorts weather in Mid March in southern Nevada! πŸ₯°πŸŒ΄πŸŒ΅πŸ˜Ž
