Roses are red, violets are blue, clicking the pics, is something your used to.
My new hookup location at Storrie Lake State Park.
If you saw this, could you guess what's going on?
I apologize for these photographs I had to take them through my windshield.
My first guess was they've got the road blocked off because they're installing this billboard sized sign on that old building. But what are all those trucks doing here? It doesn't take that much equipment to install a sign.
And what about that weird swivel head holding up the billboard? That's not what they use to pick up a sign. The weird head is holding the back of the sign, how can they install it like that?
A deputy Sheriff easily straightened out this whole confusing mess by telling me.... There's two movie companies in town making two separate films. Well I guess that explains it, but I never would've guessed it.
Come to find out Las Vegas New Mexico has been advertising itself to Hollywood filmmakers for years, and dozens of films, beginning back in the silent movie days, have used Las Vegas and its old buildings as locations, or backdrops. Films such as Easy Rider, Convoy, Red Dawn, No Country for Old Men, and many more were filmed wholly or in part, right here in Las Vegas.
So what is the giant billboard looking thing? I don't know for sure but now that I know they're making a movie I would say it's a large infinitely adjustable reflector to enhance outdoor lighting.
