The best place to get a good cross section of humanity is an attraction area. Like Vegas. Disney World, or the interstate highways

 

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Threshold

Post A Week

My favorite model is Cooter my dog. He appears to be, that is I have a lot of photos of him, from the time we first rescued off the streets when he was only a couple months old. Here he is going through the threshold of a pass through rock.

Threshold to China or just a gopher..

Granddaughters at the age of Four “4” and Eight “8” the threshold of life and what a better way to start it in Disney World. Watching a parade and seeing all the Disney characters coming down the street. DSC00019 copy

The “Guardian” at the threshold of one of the greatest wonders of the world.  Guardian is the name I gave this rock that overlooks the Grand Canyon. When I took this picture I was thinking that it looked like a statue over looking the canyon that the makers of the canyon put it there. DSC_1483 copy The Guardian of the Canyon

These people are on the threshold of rebuilding their life after Hurricane Katrina in Biloxi Mississippi.

This was just a ride one day to see some of the area outside of all the glitter of Las Vegas. WE had a great time and finishing it off with a nice dinner at one of the restaurant in  Vegas, then head to the slot machines. It doesn’t  get any better than that.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual Point Of View 2

I’ve always like this picture of my dog. He is sitting in his chair watching every thing going on and I stuck my head out the window and called his name and he looked up. Click

To shoot Las Vegas at night is magical. This was just an ordinary street scene but what stuck out to me was the district sign and the martini glass. This is what I finally came up with.

When I was photographing down town Las Vegas all the neon lights were dazzling and exciting to photograph but I wanted something different. So I blurred the lights and came up with this. I liked it because all the colors kind of blended together.I call it “ Sin City Out Of Focus”

Weekly Photo Challenge:Illumination

Postaweek/ postaday

I had some super large Christmas Trees all lit up with hundreds and hundreds of bulbs, that I shot down at Cypress Gardens a few years ago. I have so many photos that I could not find them in time.

I decided to use these photos instead. I know I’m a little late but I haven’t been well for a few weeks. I hope y’all will forgive me.DSCN0108

Weekly Photo Challenge:Urban

I never really got into street photography were we lived. I did a few trips to down town Los Angeles to photograph different parts of down town, unfortunately it was 35mm and their in a container sitting in storage. I can’t get my hands on them right now.

We haven’t lived there since May 1997. We been living in our motor homes and traveling around the country.

One city that we have spent a lot of time in is Las Vegas, being only 288 miles from home, why not! It was a lot of fun and always had a good time, never got bored and there never was shortage of good food.

Here is a few photos that I have taken of down town Las Vegas .It was renovated a few years ago to bring more customers to the down town area.

Several streets were closed off for the renovation.
