Purple Mountain Majesty
So often I find my self wanting to live somewhere that's more green, and has more rain,
somewhere I can garden and grow hydrangeas.
That somewhere is NOT here in Nevada where I live.
I grew up in the Las Vegas Valley.
When people hear "Las Vegas" it's the glitz and glamour of the Las Vegas Strip that they think of,
probably just like when I hear New York, I think of 42nd street and Times Square.
But, the glitz and glamour is not what I "see" everyday.
I see this.
Just when I start to feel sad that I can't grow hydrangeas, or I haven't seen rain in months,
God shows me some of the most beautiful colors that surround me everyday.
While I STILL hope to live near the water someday, where it's green.
I will try to "see" the beauty that surrounds me now.
"Home" in the Desert
I really dislike when people think they can just dump their unwanted things in the desert.
But, for the sake of photography,
I kind of liked this shot as a representation of
me, living in the desert of Las Vegas, Nevada.
After all, this is my home, it's all I've ever known, and I will try to "see" and share the beauty of it when I can.
Hope you enjoyed my photos.
Thank you for your visits and comments!
I have a couple of days off, and I look forward to visiting you to see what's been going on in your neck of the woods.
