OKCNMM and Myriad Botanical Gardens

OKCNMM
*****
When the sun came up this morning I was at the East Wall of the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum. I have been to this memorial a few times, but the photos files from those trips were lost 5 years ago to a computer glitch. This morning I was disappointed that the West Wall did not turn to a golden color when the sun was first hitting it. My previous trips were all late afternoon or early evening and the East Wall had a golden glow that helped to set a reflective mood. As of now, I plan to return to the memorial in a couple of hours to see if I can recapture those colors.

I also photographed in the Myriad Gardens this morning. My previous files of this park were also lost five years ago. The Myriad Gardens has been completely revamped since I was there, and they were working on even more features while I was there.

Life Is But A Journey


Life is but a journey that we all must take.
The path we choose to take is but the life we lead.
There's nothing but your mind to keep you in the dark.
But, all it ever takes is just a little spark. - A Busker's Song by Keith Birmingham

When I moved to Las Vegas just over two years ago I had plans of finding employment as an event photographer and/or working freelance as an event, travel, and stock photography. As it turns out my projects as a freelance has kept me more than busy. Of course, the money is not rolling in as I hoped it would, but I am doing what I love.

I began coming to Las Vegas back in 1974 as an over-the-road trucker. And, I have lived in Las Vegas off and on over the last several years in retirement. What I have learned about Las Vegas (at least in my case) is that it is a great city to get exposure in many fields of the arts, but it simply doesn't pay much due to the competition. But, two years ago I came to this city with no money in the bank, and only a dream I planned to try. I have not struck it rich, but I have not been disappointed. There is a learning curve to every new enterprise.
