Las Vegas Graffiti Art

Walking around the Fremont Street area of Las Vegas is one of my favorite places to find all kinds of photo opportunities. This one in particular caught my eye as it seems you could peel back the layers of graffiti that have accumulated over the years.

Garden Art

I really enjoy photographing someone painting. If the angles cooperate I try getting the subject into the photo along with the painted version. I always ask permission to get different angles I then ask for their email address to send them the photo.

Interesting Inventory

Street Walking is always full of surprises. Had this store been open I certainly would have gone in to see what other treasures it offered.

Lines, shadows and contrast

Walking down the street with my black & white camera I'm always looking for lines, shadows, contrast and maybe a story of some sort. With no color you need something else but when you see you see it in color so if you like that aspect of photography it makes it kind of fun. So a guy is walking down the street and finishes his beer.........

Guard Dog

The Shih Tzu is an Asian toy dog breed originating from Tibet. They are well-known for their largely fun and playful personality, and calm and friendly temperament. They are highly independent dogs, and are able to adapt well in different situations. That was per Wikipedia but, if there was no glass between us he surly would have eaten me.

Fire Lookout Tower

Jacob Lake Lookout Tower is located in North Kaibab AZ. Built in 1934 by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), it is an 80’ Aermotor steel tower with a 7’ x 7’ metal cab and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Visitors can still climb the tower to view the area and see the Osborne Fire Finder.

The Green Parrot

The Green Parrot is the best dive bar in Key West. Opened in 1890 as a grocery store where local musicians would gather. When WWII began it changed to the Brown Derby Bar then in the 1970s it was renamed The Green Parrot. Today, come for the atmosphere and stay for the music.  No food, just free popcorn. And don’t worry what live band is playing… they are all good.

Techatticup Gold Mine

April 1861, silver and some gold and copper lodes had been discovered by John Moss and others in what became known as El Dorado Canyon. In 1867, to secure the riverboat traffic and protect miners in the canyon from Paiute attacks the U.S. Army established Camp El Dorado, an outpost at the mouth of El Dorado Canyon that remained until it was abandoned in 1869. From 1870 the mines again were active to the point where from 1879 to 1907 El Dorado Canyon again had a post office, now in Clark County, Nevada. The mines continued to produce ore until World War. Wikipedia So, the gentleman that owns the mine leads people on tours. When coming to one intersection of shafts you can just make out a skeleton in tattered clothes leaning against the rock wall. When I asked who that was he said "the first boy that dated my daughter" then he turned and kept walking.

The real deal

This guy in the junkyard office was saying we should be careful about the snakes. He mentioned rattlers and green vipers and I said green vipers were a new one on me. Walks over to the fridge, opens the freezer and takes one out to show me. I'm sure it was the corn dogs that convinced me it was picture worthy.

One of a Kind

Walking down Duval Street one evening I come across this minivan with a large very well made kaleidoscope permanently attached to the hood. I of course looked into the end and turned the wheel. As it was pointed toward the sun the colors began to mix like a big round stain glass window. Very cool.... you should never walk around Key West without a camera or sense of humor.

A Walk In The Park

Hiking through Red Rock Canyon which is close to Las Vegas, I turned the corner and saw this. As I took a few photos others started showing up including photographers. When they finished I found out it was a photo shoot for these two brothers who were performing in Las Vegas.

Street Walking

Early morning is a great time for street walking with my camera. I stopped to take this one in Key West when the guy gave me a nice wave. I walked over and it turned out he's also a camera geek so we had a nice conversation about photography before I moved on to look for the next photo.

Key West Cemetery

This is a 19 acre cemetery located in the Old Town area. It is estimated that as many as 100,000 people are buried here, many more than the 30,000 residents who currently live on the island. In 1847 it was established at its current location after a 1846 hurricane washed remains from the earlier cemetery out of the coastal sand dunes. On June 24, 1976, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places..
