The Sunday Traveler arrived in Reno by train with the main goal of this trip being to relax, and also to get out and take photos on the street. How fortuitous to have gone on this trip right on the cusp of this horrible pandemic. We had three days of meeting our goal, wandering at will and enjoying street photography both during the day and at night.
It was good to just wander on foot in close proximity to the casino hotel we stayed in on the “strip”.
This wasn’t where we stayed, but it’s a nice place, and joins the few casino hotels left in downtown reno. The downtown main street of Reno is in a state of rundown dilapidation for the most part, with a stretch once you get past the old hotels and souvenir shops that is rather nice, and the town seems to be trying hard to make a comeback with lovely restaurants and coffee places along the Truckee River that runs through town.
A lot of walking was done while we were there as we discovered little places, and then reveling in the night photography that was so much fun in the cold night air.
Not many people were about, I’m sure they were gambling inside the casinos
In retrospect this was even better than we thought at the time. It was a time of freedom that would soon be taken from us for awhile.
I guess a reminder that we should always be in the present moment.
Until next week when I will come back with a little visit to Reno’s fabulous Nevada Museum of Art.
And until next week, stay safe.
