Remembered with Nostalgia

Now that I’ve been back to reality for 7 days, probably a good time to go over my vacation.

FRIDAY

Left work at 4 PM or so. Vacation starts.
Had FNSC with Willy. Ate at Colorado Grill.
After Colorado Grill. Started watching a new show, NARCOS.

Breakfast at Legal Limit with Mom.
Photography for Amber and Steve’s Wedding.


Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
Not Steve pictured.

SUNDAY

Went to the Lutheran Church in Gilbert with Jesse and Nader to celebrate Nader’s 30th year in the United States.
Ate lunch at the church with some of the people that helped Nader when he got to the country.
Went to Gene’s farm to admire his car collection.

Went to the Boone & Scenic Valley Railroad and Shorty was there working it.

Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
While this food stand looks awesome, the ice cream isn’t that great.

MONDAY

Loaded up Mom’s car and headed for Mount Rushmore.
Stopped in Sioux Falls for gas, human fuel, and Falls Park. It rained all the way to Sioux Falls.


Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
Sent this picture to Jorge and Joe to remind them that I wasn’t at work.

Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
Falls Park

Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
Mom struggles with the selfie concept.

Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
Confused by the bridge they built to seemingly just to wreck the view.

Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
I wonder what this picture would look like with me in it.

Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
Oh. Like that.

I give Falls Park the thumbs up. I’ll have to go back when I have more time at some point.

Stopped for gas again next to 1880 town.


Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17

Stopped at Wall Drug right before it closed.

Still don’t have the selfie thing down.

Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
Free Water.

Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
Pretty horrible restaurant across the street from Wall Drug.

I’d give Wall Drug the bird. Don’t waste your time. A bunch of touristy garbage with ridiculous hours.

Got to Rapid City and checked into a hotel with free WI-FI and continental breakfast.

TUESDAY

Got up in the morning and ate continental breakfast at the hotel. Had a lengthy conversation with two women from Arizona that came up there for the Buffalo Roundup.
Left for Mount Rushmore.

Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
What Mount Rushmore was supposed to look like, but they had to stop because of WWII. Another thing we can blame on Hitler.

Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17

I give Mount Rushmore the thumbs up.

At the base of Mount Rushmore we ran into Brad Dighton. The cousin of a member of my church. He gave us several pro tips for the area. We weren’t able to get to all of them, but maybe next time.

One of his pro tips was take the Iron Mountain Road to Custer State Park.


Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17

Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
All of these tunnels point back to Mount Rushmore. You can’t tell in the picture, but trust me.

I give the Iron Mountain Road the thumbs up.

Custer State Park is a great example of white privilege. I have no clue why a park is named after Custer. His 2 claims to fame are graduating last in his class at West Point and then getting his buttocks handed to him at the Battle of Little Big Horn.

Custer Park (like the man) was more hype than pay off. We were told we would see hundreds of buffalo. We saw one. That being said, the feral donkeys and the prairie dogs made up for the lack of buffaloes.

I give Custer Park a thumbs up, but it didn’t live up to the hype.

After we left Custer, we went to Needles Highway.

We’re starting to get there.

Needles Highway is a road about the width of McHose Park road, but with a 400 foot drop to your death on one side. It is amazing!

I give Needles Highway a big thumbs up!

After that we went to Hill City to eat lunch/dinner at a place recommended to us by Brad Dighton. That place was closed, so instead we dined at the Hill City Cafe.

We bought fudge there.

Hill City Cafe wasn’t terrible, but it certainly was not great. Thumb sideways.

After that, we went to the Crazy Horse Memorial.

Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17

Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
We might’ve regressed on our selfie game.

I’d give Crazy Horse another big thumbs up! My only complaint is that all the information seems to be on the family carving the memorial and hardly anything on Crazy Horse himself. You know, the guy that ripped Custer’s buttocks off and handed them back to him. He took out Custer’s brothers while he was ate it. Crazy Horse was an OG.

Pro Tip: Pay for the $4 bus ride.

After leaving Crazy Horse, went back to Mount Rushmore for the lighting ceremony.


Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
Sent this picture of Thomas Jefferson ice cream to Russell since Russell hate Thomas Jefferson for being a slave owner and a rapist. True, but he also made a mean ice cream.

Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
Paid and extra dollar for the Thomas Jefferson ice cream.

Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17

The lighting ceremony kind of drags on for awhile, but the part where they bring veterans on stage and take the flag down is powerful. While waiting (forever) for them to light up the mountain we became single serving friends with Lance Young. A former Iowa State wide receiver that played in the Dan MacCarney era.

After the lighting we went back to Rapid City and crashed.

WEDNESDAY

Got up in the morning and hit the continental breakfast. Hard. Going home day. No time for single serving friends. Ate and hit the road.

Stopped at Badlands National Park.


Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
This sign was all hype. No snake.

Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17

Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
Still working on it.

Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
I think we have it. At least we’re in striking distance.

Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
Taken by a woman who was friendly, but strangely afraid of falling down the side to her death. She has no future as a Photography 139 Assistant!

Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
“I’ll take one to the side and one of you in the middle.”

Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
Not afraid of the edge. Pimp.

Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17

Badlands. 2 big thumbs up. They just need to work on their rattlesnake game.

Next stop on the way home was to see the Dignity Sculpture. It looks like the Big Jesus in Sioux City, only less creepy. I don’t have a picture with the cell phone, but when I unleash the camera pictures, there is one there.

The next stop was Mitchell. I was going to avoid the Corn Palace but it just lined up with when we needed gas and human fuel.


Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
Go home corn. You’re drunk.

Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER in corn. Well, I can’t hate that.

Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
Mic Drop! I think we finally nailed it!

Last time I went to the Corn Palace, I gave it the bird. I’m going to upgrade it to just a thumbs down. It is worth seeing, if you don’t waste time going inside.

We stopped at a place called The Hungry Dog for lunch.


Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17

Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17

Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17

The Hungry Dog was by far the best eating experience of the trip. 6 out of 5 Stars!!! It only seats about 5 people on the inside and after the only employee took our order, made our food, and delivered it; she locked the door and told us she’d be right back. She had to go pick up her kids from school.

I loved every second of my experience!


Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
On the way out of town we saw this Albert the Bull wannabe. Jason Baier will get that joke.

The last stop of the evening was in Jefferson for gas and human fuel.


Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
I wish so badly we had this sign when I worked for the evil clown empire. I can’t even count all the times some dirty white trash blew cigarette smoke in my face as soon as I opened the drive-thru window.

Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
1424.3 miles in 3 days.

Then home for sleep.

THURSDAY

Did not much in the day. Hung up a bunch of pictures in my bedroom. Cleaned out the guest bedroom now that Alexis has moved out.
Picked Derrick up for the Iowa State game.


Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
I don’t care what anybody says. I love the new Bugle Cyclone secondary logo.

Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
Well almost everything about that game sucked, except the company.

FRIDAY

I can’t remember next to anything that happened on Friday.
I visited Scottie D. to get a yard sign. He is running for City Council for Ward 5.


Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17

Also had FNSC with Willy. Think it was at Jimmy’s Barbecue.

SATURDAY

Don’t remember much about Saturday either.

Went uptown during YesterBoone to complete another page of the Photo Journal Project.


Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
Sent this to Micky and offered to buy it in case he got shutout on his hunting trip in Wyoming.

Went out to McHose Park and with Jesse’s assistance completed yet another page of the Photo Journal Project.


Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17

After that, we went to a Gender Reveal Party for one of the members of the Youth Group. It’s a Girl!!
Headed up to Jay’s for Chili Lab. Both Jay and Wily made great chilis and we enjoyed a viewing of KONG ISLAND.

SUNDAY

Got up and went to church at Boone First United Methodist Church.
Then lunch with the family.
Meeting for the Council to Elect Degeneffe.
Then I went to the Freedom Flight Send-off to see Jesse’s Dad.


Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
Derrick’s dad made an impromptu speech praising military spouses.

Vacation 09/23/18 - 10/01/17
Monica’s mom made a bouquet that they took with them to place on the tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Then I went home. Sat on my couch and soaked up the last few hours of vacation, before being back at the grind on Monday.

I’ve been back to work one week. Already fantasizing about the next time I dip my toes into the PTO pool.

10-31-2017

The pictures in the folder 10-31-07 display both a terrifying display of brute strength and a terrifying display of Halloween costumes.

By dusting off these pictures and adding them to the current Smugmug Photo Gallery, I was able to restore the following blog posts:

COSTUMES


HP LASERJET 4100


I have now restored all of the October 2007 blog posts to close to their original glory. Now I can’t tell you why I’ve felt motivated to restore decade old blog posts, because I know that nobody is checking them out, but I can tell you that I’ve learned a lot about who I used to be. I used to be somebody that put up photos within minutes after taking them. The current me has photos that he took close to a year ago that he still needs to look at. I probably need to find some middle ground on that.

Next Saturday’s walk down memory lane will involve more Iowa State Football and some surprising tailgaters!

Valley Lodge is Closed

Since a few people have been asking, I am making a formal announcement.



THERE IS NO CHRISTOPHER D. BENNETT BIRTHDAY EXTRAVAGANZA AKA BENNETT-FEST THIS YEAR!


The reasons are multiple and complicated, but it is probably your fault. If you search your heart, you know it to be true.

So there will be NO:

– Baby Got Rack Award Winning Barbecue
– Hardcore Firetub Action
– Bubbles
– Sidewalk Chalk
– Golden Retriever
– Master’s Playlist
– Cornhole
– Tent
– Stimulating Conversation
– Catching up with old friends
– No photos like the ones below

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.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – WEEK 47 – ARCHITECTURE

Christopher D. Bennett

While I know most people will appreciate my throw away ARCHITECTURE pictures to my submission, but that is okay. I’m dedicating it to somebody, with whom, I have a special relationship.

That being said, a very solid week of submissions. I’m proud of all of us, everyone.

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 48 - SPORTS
SPORTS!


But what are SPORTS?

Well, one definition would be:

“an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment.”

But of course another would be:

“a person who behaves in a good or specified way in response to teasing, defeat, or a similarly trying situation.”

So go out an do some physical exertion, or bully somebody. Do whatever it takes? Or define the theme in any way you see fit!

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

Nobody this week showed class, taste or sophistication by signing up for a Photography 139 Email Subscription. I’ll try to do better next week.

A MESSAGE FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHY 139 SHAMELESS REMINDER DIVISION

Just a reminder, that if you ever want to look back at previous submissions for the WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE, visit the Gallery by clicking on the link below:



WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE TAKE 3


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 sporty Monday.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – WEEK 44 – SMOKE

I was worried that this wouldn’t be a very popular theme, but it actually has garnered quite the response. How exciting! Looks like this theme will make the cut for next year’s WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE.

If you want to have your voice heard about next year’s themes, I’d advise you to start commenting in the COMMENTS section below. It wouldn’t hurt to read the COMMENTS section from last week’s WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE. Ignore the stuff about what Shannon should change her last name to after she gets married. It is Fauxdole. Debate over.

Here are the submissions for SMOKE:


WEEK 44 - SMOKE - CARLA STENSLAND

For the last submission, the photographer wished to add a disclaimer. Normally I say that art should just stand on its own. However, because of the nature of the image, I’m allowing it.

Quick note: I happened to be visiting a friend in a state with legal recreational marijuana laws when the smoke theme was announced. Attempts for an artsy picture failed but I am happy to share a little window into what this situation “looks” like — different, tested, regulated strains with varied intentions/side effects; medicine-like packaging; clear labels that includes warnings and information. It’s so far advanced from your average college-stoned-and-stupid experience and heavy taxes (25% in OR) can be applied to various important government funding. I recommend for folks to at least visit a dispensary to see what the future holds.


WEEK 43 - SMOKE - STEPHANIE KIM
Stephanie Kim

Stephanie did ask about what was considered inappropriate subject matter for the WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE. There isn’t really anything. Just don’t send me anything illegal. If you catch what I’m saying. By illegal… I mean. Starts with a C and ends with a Y. Two words. You’ll figure it out. Other than that, almost anything is fair game.

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 45 - FLOWER
FLOWER!

I told you that this week’s theme would be easy. Hopefully it will be easy enough that a couple of dudes might contribute again. Mondays are beginning to feel like lady’s night here at Photography 139. Nothing wrong with that. I’m just disappointed in my gender.

EDITOR’S NOTE: At the buzzer Vest submitted a photo. Dudes didn’t get shut out.

WEEK 43 - SUNRISE/SUNSET
SUNRISE/SUNSET

Since Naima is waiting patiently to go on a walk, I’ll just point out that you don’t have to take this theme literally. Also, my quick advice is as follows. Think about what you put in front of the sunset or sunrise. That might make the picture. The other advice is don’t necessarily take a picture looking at the sunset. Turn around and look at what the light has done behind you. Finally. Wait at least 5 minutes until after the sun has gone down until you quit your scene. At least 5 minutes.

No Housekeeping today. Giving it the day off.
