A Bit of An Apology to My Readers

This is going to be a boring post, but there is a purpose behind it as I try to explain where I am and where I am going.

Fact: I worked hard, and I got ahead of myself. I have a dozen articles started, but they are saved as drafts. I have a bunch more work saved on my computer, but it is unorganized, unedited, and waiting for me to get to it. Maybe I will, or maybe I will step out of the house today and collect more stuff to go onto my computer.

From May through September of this year I was working 16 to 18 hour days. I spent the first half of October on the road but also working. I spent the last half of October and the first half of November fighting a bad back, ---- and working. I have been laying low from computer work for the past three weeks to recuperate from my struggles. I did not enjoy it, but it had to be done. Today, I may be getting a sluggish start, but it is time for me to get back to work, and I will do it.

At least I have been getting out to do a little photography over the past three weeks. While walking to get the exercise I have shot some more city parks and trails. Getting those shots onto the computer is about the only computer work I have done in the past three weeks. Now, I need to get busy and do something with them.

There will be a bit less publically visible work done on my computer because I think I once again have enough of a catalog to start trying to market my work. That is where my work effort will now concentrate. But, I will do my best to start publishing to this blog more of the work that I have been doing. But, it all takes time. Please bear with me.

One last thing. I am retired. I have enough of a retirement income so that I could sit back and do nothing. But, I love what I do. Any income that I get from doing it is a bonus. I love bonuses. Please visit my photography store, browse, and buy. I'm a greedy capitalist.

Cactus Wren Park

Sunridge Park, Henderson, NV.

The city of Henderson, Nevada makes every effort to put every square inch of city property to good use. The city parks reflect this effort. No matter where you live, or where you are coming from you will find that Henderson is a well-planned city with parks that are designed to keep people, locals and visitors, coming back to them. 

When I arrived at Sunridge Park the sun still had not risen above the mountain that bordered it on the east side. But, there were already a few people walking through and around the park. The park appears to be a place where locals frequent to get their exercise. Their ages ran from teen to seniors, with a couple of moms and toddlers showing up to put the playground to good use. One mom told me that she brings her kids her to tire them out so that she can get some rest.  In the less than 2 hours that I was there a softball team showed up for practice, and a couple of men showed up at the tennis courts. Dogs were on leashes, but I did not see a dog walk.

Park Amenities: playground, picnic tables, barbecue pits, open grass areas, restroom, tennis courts with lights, volleyball, baseball and softball fields, courts with lights, multiple purpose open field areas, basketball court with lights.

All reservations are on a first come first serve bases. Reservations must be made 2 weeks in advance. For more info:

My second trip was to take advantage of the early morning light. That was this morning. Madeira Canyon Park is a beautiful city park located at the south edge of the Las Vegas Valley as you are climbing the South McCullough Mountain Range. This is one of the newer residential areas of the city of Henderson, and is near the Henderson Executive Airport.
