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.
And we can only hope that the people who dumped their furniture there got a flat tire on the way home. ;-)
That is such a national thing...dumping couches in the country! Drives me nuts . We see it all the time and on trails in the mountain! Back home is just as bad!
These photos are beautiful!!!!
But i have to say it is rougher landscapes isn't it? Like parts of Canada to me seem tough.
I don't blame you for wanting green and hydrangeas! My cousin back home lives in Northern Ontario..very cold in winter and she cannot grow hydrangeas.
They have to be one of my favourites.
Don't worry Becca God hears you!!!
Oh it is pouring here today!!! Yesterday was so warm and sunny and the tree frogs oh my they drive me crazy ! 6am they start!!!!
But I must say, it did indeed make for a very interesting photo! Excellent!
Happy Weekend Becca!
What great photos. It is really hard to make that desert look good. But you have certainly done just that..
Your photo's look great. I know it sucks that people just throw there junk out in the desert but I think that couch looks pretty cool...
Hope you are enjoying you day!! It was so hot here yesterday.. YUCK!!
No fun!! I hope it is cooler today!
These are truly majestic Becca.
Your photos are beautiful, once again.
Thanks for sharing them, jillayne
