Picture(s) And Video A Day – 23 July 2010

Blogging – it’s been a while, hasn’t it?  Sorry for that, but work this past week was anything but relaxing or invigorating.  We had a few outages which meant I was busier than a bartender in Vegas on New Years Eve.  After work I just want to go home, decompress, and get some sleep.

OK, enough of that – here’s the pics :D

I headed on over to New Frontier Armory / Infinite Arms after work after not darkening their doorway for two whole weeks :shock:  Well, Guido who owns New Frontier Armory just got a new toy and I couldn’t pass up getting a pic of it :)  These trucks don’t get the greatest gas mileage as you can imagine but I still want one in a big way – they’re just cool 8)  Of course, the fact that you can get one for between $1,500 and $2,000 might have something to do with it, too :P

23 July 2010 - Vehicle geocaching travel bug

23 July 2010 - Geocaching vehicle travel bug

I haven’t been geocaching in quite a while, but I still recognized this for what it is – a travel bug decal on a vehicle :)

If you haven’t heard of geocaching, check out geocaching.com and see if it’s something you might like.  All you need is a GPS receiver and a computer, but a pencil helps as well sometimes :wink:  Basically, people hide geocaches, record the GPS coordinates, post them on geocaching.com, and then you go find them and log your finds on geocaching.com.  A geocache is basically some sort of container with a log inside that you sign.  Many of them also contain a pencil to sign the log with and a few trade items like key chains and small compasses.  You’re always supposed to trade up – leave something nicer than you took for others to trade.  It’s a fun way to get out and do something 8)

23 July 2010 - Heading home under the desert sun

23 July 2010 - Heading home under the desert sun

It will likely come as no surprise that it’s been HOT lately here in Las Vegas :lol:  I took this picture while heading home from NFA/IA when it was about 114° or so and yes, it’s just as hot as you’d imagine.  At least the humidity’s down near 10% so it’s pretty livable :)

Last, but not least I have a video for a change :)  I set up my Nikon Coolpix S220 in interval mode to take 1 picture per minute looking out from my desk at work when I saw a thunderstorm building.  Once I had all the pictures, I put ‘em into Windows Movie Maker and made a time lapse movie 8)  The music comes from YouTube’s “audio swap” feature and I think it works rather well :wink:

That’s it for now :)  Here’s hoping you have a great Sunday :mrgreen:

  • Nice work on the time-lapse vid. I’ve thought about doing this but haven’t pulled the trigger yet, mainly coz I don’t wanna spend the night out in the desert (I’m thinking about shooting the night sky).

  • Thanks! If you do the night sky, make sure to look up how to do it online – there’s articles about what you need and good techniques. Best of luck!

    I would LOVE to have deuce and a half as my next new truck! They’ve got some over at DRMO (?) that are painted desert khaki and I love ‘em! I only drive about 75 or 80 miles a week in my BroncoII, could probably afford enough gas for that… I’d NEVER have to worry about anyone hitting me, would I? LOVE IT!
