Old Southwest

Reno’s oldest neighborhood is located south and west of the Truckee River. Old Southwest should not to be confused with Southwest Reno which is the area southwest of Reno-Tahoe airport.  I love this neighborhood.

Mt Rose School

“The Mount Rose Elementary School, at 915 Lander St. in Reno, Nevada, is a historic Mission/Spanish Revival-style school that was built in 1912 and extended in 1938. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.

The school is “a rare example” of Mission Revival style surviving in the Reno area.” (Wikipedia)

 

 

 

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Near and Far, Take 2

A second take on this week’s Photo Challenge.

Backed-up traffic on Hwy 50 heading out of Carson City.  When there is an accident, there is no place to go. And so we waited.

You have GOT to be kidding me.

4th of July – Show and Shine

While I can appreciate the work and devotion that goes into restoring and maintaining a classic car,honestly,  I don’t get super-excited about them, especially when I see classic cars painted odd colors and bedecked with flames and other such non-standard decor. However, as we wandered around Fernley’s 4th of July Show and Shine, I was taken with this International Harvester pick-up.  I processed this one in Lightroom, because I felt it needed an old-timey feel to it. Hope you like it.
