I guess I’m by nature not a natural blogger

For all but I hope to accomplish I guess I’m by nature not a natural blogger. I admire the bloggers who have the ability to constantly get content out on the Internet consistently and hopefully someday I’ll be able to do achieve the same level of output that they have achieved, but right now like to apologize to those who do look at my site to see what I’m up to and my site hasn’t been updated for a while.
My excuse this time is because or the move to Nevada and at the same time being busy on a quilt commission. I just never stopped or gave time to for get the information out.
I guess that I keep falling into the trap of feeling that if I stop to blog I wont meet the deadlines that I’ve set for myself even though this may be one of the best ways to be seen. Well I’m back and hopefully things will calm down enough that I’ll start blogging again on more consistent basis.
Some of you may have read I’ve been relocating from the New Jersey to Nevada and I’m still in a state of flux we’ve moved everything out to our new home but I’m back in New Jersey at lease for the few months (when my wife retires) and at that can permanently relocate once and for all out to Henderson Nevada.
But as many of us realize, everything is subject to change, I may be out in Henderson soon than later. If that’s the case my wife as already told me to go for it.
Family first, the past and the future
In the past, most of our family came out of South Carolina and eventually as most families do, grew and expended with people moving north to PA, NJ, NY & CT while others went to NV & CA. We are fortunate that as a family that the various branches stayed in touch and now over the years some of scattered branches are coming back together with Las Vegas as the focal point.

It seems like only yesterday

I’ve been a little slow in putting up new post since things have gotten a little busy around here, between working on my quilt designs, trying it put in time to do long-arm quilting and also preparing for moved out west, I didn’t have much time to work on the blog but it’s Tuesday morning day after Labor Day and I said to myself “it’s a good time to put up a post to let everyone know I’m still here.”

So going through some my photo library I decided to start looking at my photos I’ve taken on trips out to Arizona and Nevada and Utah and found this picture that took around 3 years ago, it seems like yesterday.
I took the photos the week the Grand Canyon Skywalk opened out at “Grand Canyon West” on the on the lands of the Hualapai people. The photo here is a panoramic picture taken about a week after the Skywalk opened to the public and I was standing on the edge of the canyon at the “bottom” of a bend where, as you can see on the left side, the Skywalk as it looked at that time just opening and on the opposite side, a group of spectators on the right side taking a pictures of it.
The photo is another moment in time that I thought might be interesting to put up and will give people an idea of what the canyon looks in that area and what the new Skywalk looked like when it first opened.

These are a couple of photos taken by my wife of the newly opened Skywalk while I went for a walk on it. We are planning a trip back out to the Skywalk at the end of October (2012). It will be interesting to see what changes where made.

Bright Lights And A Great View

This is a nighttime photo of the Las Vegas Strip (to the left) and down town Las Vegas (to the right). This is a composite photo taken from the the McDonald Ranch area of Henderson, NV, near my house there. So as you look at the picture, you are looking north toward the city with the strip being toward the west.

Thanks for looking.

Taken somewhere over the Midwest, by my wife while flying to Las Vegas, the photograph just won first place in this year’s Burlington County fair. I call the photo ‘Nature’s UFO’ because of the way the cloud formation looks like rising from the clouds below. Eva used her Canon PowerShot ELPH 12-megapixel and had it handy when she spotted the usual cloud formation while looking out the window the plane.

Desert Sculpture

Here is a example of nature’s power and artistic ability. This is the sun bleached, wind & sand blasted remains of a Bristle Cone Pine tree up an the slope of Mt. Charleston, Nevada.  I spotted this natural sculpture when my wife and I stopped while drive on the Mt. Charleston Scenic Drive to look out over the desert below and I spotted this  on the slope just above where I had parked the car.

Sunrise at Sunrise Mountain

Las Vegas means the Meadows and this is a photo taken in what remains of the meadows in Clark County Wetlands Park located at the southern edge of Sunrise mountain in East Las Vegas. The photo was taken shortly after sunrise to catch the lighting and details of the mountain and the Meadows.

Let me know what your favorite spots are… I’d  like to know.

The Las Vegas ‘Strip’ – A composite photo

Image

I like taking early morning walks or go hiking when the temperature is cooler. I was hiking up on the Anthem East Trail on ‘Black Mountain’ in Henderson, NV. The image is made up of several photos that I took while walking. Eventually I’ll get around to cleaning up the image.
