Genoa is the oldest settlement in Nevada boasting the oldest saloon and oldest home, the pink house.  It seems the saloon is so old that it has lost its original name.  The bloody Marys are supposed to be famous.  The guys on Harleys started in Reno and would circle Lake Tahoe before returning to Reno that evening.

      • Okay that explains everything. It`s a good shot (catch) which reveales the soul of the people who are using this building.

  6. Great gallery of shots. They have some really unique architecture. The shot with the saws was beautifully composed and the colored glass is a great element.

  10. Love how you thread your images together – this series brings me through the back door of this enchanting place – I am imagining slinging back a whiskey (not sure if I even like whiskey) as I sit at my kitchen table sipping coffee.
