Next Saturday’s walk down memory lane looks to be some tree and night photography.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – WEEK 81 – FACELESS PORTRAIT

FACELESS PORTRAIT is challenging, but still, a handful of hearty photographers gave it a whirl. But you didn’t come here to listen to me talk all tommyrot about heart. You came to see the submissions:


WEEK 81 - FACELESS PORTRAIT - MIKE VEST
Mike Vest

Suzanne Brannen

WEEK 81 - FACELESS PORTRAIT - MICHELLE HAUPT

WEEK 81 - FACELESS PORTRAIT - ANGIE DEWAARD

But enough dwelling on the past. Time to look to the future. We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives. And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future! This week’s theme:


WEEK 82 - ANGRY
ANGRY!

ANGRY seems like a pretty straight forward easy theme. It should be easy to find somebody you know that is ANGRY. Or something that makes you ANGRY.

Personally, I’m somebody that people rarely see ANGRY, but I’m told I have a “look” when I’m ANGRY. I assume that this look is what I captured in the reveal photo above.

So get out there and get in touch with your inner Hulk. Incredible, or otherwise.

HOUSEKEEPING

A MESSAGE FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHY 139 RULES DIVISION

1. The picture has to be taken the week of the theme. This isn’t a curate your pictures challenge. This is a get your butt off the couch (my personal experience) and put your camera in your hands challenge. Don’t send me a picture of you next to the Eiffel Tower, when I know you were in Iowa all week. I will point out that I have let that slide some in the past. I will not in the future. Since it is literally about the only rule.

2. Your submission needs to be emailed to bennett@photography139.com by 11 AM on the Monday of the challenge. It should be pointed out that this blog auto-publishes at 12:01 on Mondays. So it wouldn’t hurt to get your picture in earlier.

That is it, them’s the rules.

A MESSAGE FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHY 139 SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION DIVISION

Nothing new to report. I’ll try to do better next week.

Want your own Photography 139 email subscription? Call, email, or text me and I’ll get you the hook up.

A MESSAGE FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHY 139 GALLERY DIVISION

Sometimes people send me descriptions of their photos. I’ve never done anything with that information in the past. However, if you send me a description in the future, I will add it to your image in the Weekly Photo Challenge Gallery that houses all the submissions.

MESSAGE FROM THE ROUNDBALL ORACLES DIVISION

Tonight is the national title game and there are two people still alive in the pursuit to have their name put on the List of Immortals, next to other basketball greats like Running Wolf and that missionary guy from Taiwan.

Here is what you need to know to base your rooting interests tonight:

IF North Carolina (a fine academic institution COUGH! COUGH!) wins, Paul Golden is this year’s Roundball Oracles Champ!
IF Gonzaga (a school that nearly closed in the 90s) wins, Andree Jauhari is this year’s Roundball Oracles Champ!

I know who I’m rooting to win. (Hint: It involves which one it will cost me the least amount of money to ship the trophy to…)

Good luck gentlemen!

On the other side of the coin. Congratulations (I think) go out to Shannon Bardole (for the moment) for winning this year’s The Sara! The trophy awarded to last place adult that tried really, really hard. She edged out Jill Gorshe, Corey Faust (all that hockey must be going to his brain), and Laura Miller. Laura was close to clinching a repeat. However, South Carolina’s Final Four run gave her just enough points to best Shannon, Jill, and Faust in the final standings. Well played Laura!

****************************************

That’s all I got for today, so if the good Lord’s willin’ and the creek don’t rise, we will commune right here again next Monday. Hopefully it will be a very angry Monday!

To a Great 2017!

Pretend like I published this on January 1, just like I meant to do.

It is that day at Photography 139 Headquarters where we take down our old Photography 139 Calendar and put it in the trunk with many of the other remnants of our past.




We like to think that 2016 was a successful year for Photography 139 and I’d like to thank everybody that was responsible for making it appear so.

ROUNDBALL ORACLES – YEAR 12

I recently presented The Trophy for winning the 12th year of the Roundball Oracles to this year’s champion… Michelle Haupt

It was an exciting NCAA Tournament and an equally exciting Roundball Oracles NCAA Tournament Pool. If North Carolina would’ve won the NCAA Championship Game, Sara Lockner would’ve come home with the trophy this year. Alas, it wasn’t meant to be. Congratulations Michelle! May your reign be short.

I don’t have a picture of Laura with her new trophy yet, but I will as soon as I get “The Sara” in the mail, it arrives in Manhattan, and she sends me a picture with her new pride and joy.

I would explain to you what is going on in this series of pictures from the folder 03-11-07, but you wouldn’t believe me.




















I’ll probably combine a bunch of folders for next Saturday’s walk down memory lane, but I bet there will be a picture of a Gra Lab timer in there. I know! I’m excited too!

2015

So the walk down memory lane now concludes. With a look at the images that were in the calendar that early this morning will be taken down from kitchen walls (most common place I’ve seen the calendar hung up), office walls, cubicle walls, and placed gently in the trash with yesterday’s coffee grounds. 2015 Photography 139 Calendar I bid you a fond adieu.

The Experts Week 3 – The Picks

Once again, don’t read if you don’t want to know what will happen in the most important football games this weekend.

TIE-BREAKER

IOWA STATE AT TOLEDO – SATURDAY 7 PM (ESPNNEWS)
CDB: IOWA STATE 13 TOLEDO 10 (The most important thing for this game is that Tucker will be back. However, I’m not without concerns. Is it time to say that Mangino is overrated? We are a year and 2 games into his tenure and the Iowa State offense isn’t any better than it was under Messingham. I will concede that the play calling has improved, however the disastrous second half wasn’t the first time under Mangino that Iowa State’s offense looked good in the first half and then didn’t even show up in the second half. Look at North Dakota State, Kansas State, Texas Tech, Kansas, West Virginia games from last year. He is flat out being outcoached. Thank God for Wally. Dale Pierson gets 3 more sacks and Toledo looks past Iowa State for its big matchup next week with Arkansas State, allowing the Cyclone defense to pull off the upset.)

FRIDAY GAMES

#9 FLORIDA STATE (2-0) AT BOSTON COLLEGE (2-0) – 7 PM (ESPN)

FORT DODGE DODGERS (3-0) AT WATERLOO EAST TROJANS (1-2)

JLB: FORT DOGE (RMK)
DRE: FORT DODGE
RMK: FORT DODGE (Streets.)
CAF: FORT DODGE

PERRY BLUE JAYS (0-3) AT BOONE TOREADORS (0-3)
CDB: BOONE (I would think there would be a point where Boone would have to win a game. They will be hampered by the retirement of one of their best players. But this is Perry. The Toreadors will be buoyed by a historic halftime show (I’m not making this up.) and actually play a little defense to get what might be the Toreadors only win of the season.)
JLB: BOONE (Bennett)
DRE: PERRY
RMK: PERRY (Perry by 30.)

SOUTH HARDIN TIGERS (1-2) AT ROLAND-STORY NORSEMEN (0-2)

LOGAN MAGNOLIA PANTHERS (2-1) AT AUDUBON WHEELERS (3-0)
CDB: AUDUBON (This is a tough one for me. Traditionally Logan-Magnolia just stomps Audubon into the ground, and keeps on going like they didn’t even notice it happened. However, after their win last week, I’m an Albert the Bull believer. Wheel Guys by 15!)

TULSA (2-0) AT #16 OKLAHOMA (2-0) – 11 AM (FS1)

RMK: OKLAHOMA

LOUISIANA TECH (1-1) AT KANSAS STATE (2-0) – 2 PM (FSN)

TEXAS SAN ANTONIO (0-2) AT #25 OKLAHOMA STATE (2-0) – 2:30 PM (FS1)

#14 GEORGIA TECH (2-0) AT #8 NOTRE DAME (2-0) 2:30 PM (NBC)

#18 AUBURN (2-0) AT #13 LSU (1-0) – 2:30 PM (CBS)

JLB: LSU
DRE: LSU
RMK: LSU (Grass eaters.)
CAF: LSU

TEXAS TECH (2-0) AT ARKANSAS (1-1) – 6 PM (ESPN2)
CDB: ARKANSAS (GQ versus the former Hawkeye. This will be a fascinating game to watch because of the clash of styles. An excellent example of why the college game is so much more interesting than the NFL, USFL, WFL, or the AFL. I’m assuming the Razorbacks learned a lesson in humility last week and will control the ball and grind out a win against Pretty Boy Floyd.)

FLORIDA (2-0) AT KENTUCKY (2-0) – 6:30 PM (SECN)
CDB: FLORIDA (I’m wondering if Kentucky is for real. I think they are, but I’m still taking Florida.)

CALIFORNIA (2-0) AT TEXAS (1-1) – 6:30 PM (FOX)
CDB: CALIFORNIA (Poor Texas. Their football team might be lousy, but at least they always have the Longhorn Network. Golden Bears take out Texas early enough that they still have time to catch AUSTIN CITY LIMITS.)

PITTSBURGH (2-0) AT IOWA (2-0) – 7 PM (BTN)
CDB: IOWA (Pittsburgh always finds a way to lose this game. This year is no different. C.J. Heisman gets another W.)

STANFORD (1-1) AT #6 USC – 7 PM (ABC)
CDB: STANFORD (I can’t in good faith endorse a Stanford team that got whooped by Northwestern. But I’m going out on the limb. Stanford with the upset!)

SMU (1-1) AT #3 TCU – 7 PM (FSN)
CDB: TCU (Maybe we should let SMU into the Big 12. Iowa State might be able to beat them. For a year or two. Pony Express gets taken out into the woods and gets shot. Chad Morris tells his kids that they just went to the farm to live.)

#15 OLE MISS (2-0) AT #2 ALABAMA (2-0) – 8:15 PM (ESPN)
CDB: ALABAMA (Vengeance, thy name is the Crimson Tide. That being said, can we discuss how stupid a nickname the Crimson Tide is? The only thing that is dumber is having an elephant as a mascot. But at least Alabama isn’t 150 years late to giving up the confederate battle flag. I guess Alabama is slightly less white trash than Mississippi? Anyway, Roll Tide!)

#19 BYU (2-0) AT #10 UCLA (2-0) – 9:30 PM (FS1)
CDB: UCLA (The question here is this: Is BYU’s backup quarterback legit? For that matter is UCLA’s true freshman quarterback legit? I’m betting on the true freshman.)
JLB: UCLA (The BYU magic runs out)
DRE: BYU
RMK: UCLA (More articles about Rosen.)
CAF: UCLA

UNI (1-1) AT CAL POLY (1-1) – 9:30 PM (NO TV)
CDB: CAL POLY (Purple Hawks surprised me with their spunk last week. It is always tough going to the left coast (that was for my Trump supporters out there) and play a game that is past the curfew of 95% of Cedar Falls. I’m giving this game to the time lag and Cal Poly.)
