3 for 4

Jesse and I went down to Kansas City last Saturday to watch Iowa State play West Virginia in the Big 12 Championship Game. Here are a few cruddy cell phone pictures from the day:

It was a great day spent in Hilton South with 18,000 of my closest friends!

Iowa State held off a gritty West Virginia team to claim the championship, behind the play of the the best point guard in the country Monte Morris and Deonte Burton’s thunderous dunk and Matty T’s shooting and Naz’s grit and determination and Solo’s defense and Bowie’s onions and DJ’s heart and Little Babb’s spark.

Here’s hoping for a long run in the NCAA Tournament!

Drone Fantasy

I like this picture because it helps me pretend like I have that drone that I want to get:

But alas, I’m only standing on a bridge and looking down.

I read on Twitter once about a place claiming to be “the most photographed waterfall in Iowa”. Now I don’t know how they document that claim, especially when what they are referring to is actually a spillway, but I suppose water does fall over it.

Either way, this “waterfall” was the end destination for my black & white photo road trip.

Thanks for taking the time to help me mock this pathetic collection of losers!

The Dome

Last Sunday Mom, Teresa, Vi, and I loaded up into the car and traveled to the great north to visit Andrea, Josh, Wesley, and Grace. It was a great time, but perhaps the highlight was going up into Andrea’s church’s dome with Josh.

Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the trip:
