Beautiful Photograph of "Clouds" reflecting on Walker Lake ...

Industry Observer

"Walker Lake" Nevada by Robert Swetz 9-12-2011


After thinking about yesterday ... (9/11) ... VB just decided to jump in his car and head north.

I quickly looked at the weather where I was headed and the temps are much cooler then Vegas but still quite comfortable. VB is in Reno right now but this afternoon I stopped for a little view of Walker Lake Nevada, about 4 hours north of Vegas. Pulled my fold-out chair from the trunk, grabbed my sandwich and some water and just chilled.

VB is finally headed to northern California to camp in the Redwoods. After the 10th anniversary of 9/11 VB thought to himself "Life is Short" ... enjoy it while you can!

The reason VB has free time is because many clients are waiting till around November/ December to pull the trigger on purchasing some homes, and the commercial end is a very slow right now. Also some HUGE construction projects will be breaking ground on the Las Vegas "Strip" in the next few months.

VB will stay connected with photographs like the one (above) but not with videos, VB forgot his Mac by accident at home which he uses to upload his videos.

Oh well ... I still have my still cameras, and video cameras to keep me busy.

Your pictures take my breathe away....  Glad to hear that things will be happening on the strip... Removal of that partially build mall and the abandonded / never completed casino will make a nice change among other things...
