Early Morning in Las Vegas

Early morning in Vegas around 7 AM. I’m going to be doing tours for the next few months around the Southwest so I may as well photograph everything and everywhere I go. It’ll help me to keep my sanity as I drive thousands of miles over the next 2-3 months. I love giving tours but I don’t have a decent social life when I am always on the road and I need some way to stay sane, so I’ll use my shutter for medicinal purposes. So stay tuned! 🙂

Baptist Church in Rachel, Nevada

Rachel, Nevada is right on the verge of Area 51 – America’s top secret government base  where UFOs are often spotted in the night skies. You travel Nevada’s Extra Terrestrial Highway in order to get to the small community of Rachel.

Route 66 Motel in Seligman, AZ

I have a whole slew of Route 66 photography and I don’t know what to do with all the images except post one at a time over a long expanse of time. That’s the beauty of digital photography! It costs next to nothing to produce digital records of historical places. As I venture around the country, I hope to document everything simply for the sake of posterity and maybe someday all these images can be useful historical records or something when all of these places are long gone? I don’t know. I just love taking pictures so do I even need a valid excuse to be a photojunkie? I don’t think so…
