Mojave Grey

It just happens that there was an overcast day last week in Las Vegas. Cloudy days are much less in the desert area. In the desert where I live...we get massive storms without warning, they move in so fast and are gone before you know it. I think the faux Eiffel Tower looks more fitting in a grey atmosphere n'est-ce pas?

  1. Wow, that is unusual, gray skies in Vegas. Cool shots, though - especially the last one. And the "Death Valley" one because you can see the rain in the background.

    Oh, and I love the first photo because the first time I was in Vegas, I stayed at Bally's.

    1. Thanks Sonya. It's an unusual moment for sure.=) I was in my kitchen last night and I saw the walls turn purple...so I went outside and that is the scene I saw( last photo). Bally's is my lucky casino! I put $2 in the Nickel slots and won $250 once. There is a festive vibe there too. =) Have a nice weekend.

    1. Thank you Parker. Vegas Buildings are fun. I'm liking the new cam. What an updated digital camera can do. ;) Have a nice weekend.

  3. I like these even though I am not fond of gray skies. Being a former midwesterner, I am thoroughly enjoying the year round sun in the desert. Nothing like a desert sunset. They are the best. Last time I was in vegas was my honeymoon--quite a few moons ago. Everything looks different now!

  4. Hi Teresa..I don't mind gray skies as long as they don't stick around...that's why I love the Southwest. =) You are right, nothing like a desert sunset and I have seen some of the best in AZ. I remember when Vegas was basically a hick town- It sure has changed! Have a nice weekend! =)

  5. Bonjour Sandy. Thank you for mentioning French Girl in Seattle. I agree with you that the "Old Lady" (the Eiffel Tower) looks more natural with grey skies in the background. She is used to "la grisaille," as are all Parisians - and Seattleites for that matter. ;-) Bon weekend, Sandy. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

  6. Pas de problèm Veronique! I agree, la grisaille fits well avec la Tour Eiffel. And hot coffee may even taste better that way too.;) Have a fab. weekend French Girl in Seattle.

  9. I can see you're having fun with your new camera!
    The photos are very sharp, the colours are great too! I like cloudy days, the photos are always nice because there are no shadows.
    Come on, don't make me envious, the sky in the last shot is S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G, well done!!!
    Tenha um lindo fim de semana! :)

  10. Thanks Lúcia!! I'm liking my new camera...it's not fancy but it's doing pretty good...especially if you say so. The Southwest doesn't get a whole lot of clouds...so I will have to find away to make it more interesting. If I ever meet a Portuguese speaking person - at least I will know how to say Tenha um lindo fim de semana! Haha. =)

  11. I think the clouds made all the difference in the world with these photos. The sunset and the Luxor are my favorites.

    1. Thanks Ron.=) I keep hearing clouds are good for photos...I haven't really figured that part out. How do you do it with water?! =)
