These are the pictures that didn’t have what it takes to make the cut for the COLD theme for THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE:
If only these pictures believed in themselves, there is no telling what they might accomplish.
It feels like I didn’t get off the couch much in July. I guess we’ll take a look. Here are some of my favorites from the month of July from THE SELFIE PROJECT:
Maybe July wasn’t so bad. But I think August will be even better!
On a recent trip to Algona with Joe we made a stop in West Bend and I knocked out Page 5 of THE PHOTO JOURNAL PROJECT:
Here are a few of the pictures I took but didn’t select to tape into the Photo Journal:
I honestly have no clue what page of the Photo Journal I will tackle next.
Here we are in August and I haven’t checked back into THE SELFIE PROJECT for the month of June. Here are some of favorites from June:
One side effect of THE SELFIE PROJECT I wasn’t expecting is that there are times when I think that might life is boring and I don’t do all that much. Then I look back at these pictures and I can see that I DO get out of the office or off the couch every now and again.

I hope my July ended up being as good/great as my June!
A couple months back Mom, Teresa, Logan, and I hopped into a vehicle of some kind and headed due east for famous What Cheer, Iowa and it’s even more famous flea market.
It didn’t disappoint. I think a person could spend all day there and still not see all the vendors.
Here are some pictures from that trip. You’re welcome Kio!
My favorite part of the What Cheer Flea Market is that they (seemingly) allow you to climb up onto the roof of their rickety grandstand. The roof is made out of sheet metal and their doesn’t seem to be any reinforcements as you walk across it. Hoping you don’t plummet to your death. It was awesome!
On the last day of my vacation I took a quick sprint up to Dolliver Memorial State Park. On my way there I passed through Dayton. I stopped in Dayton to look for something to fulfill Page 9 of THE PHOTO JOURNAL PROJECT.
I found this picture just waiting to be harvested:
I found a lot of ugly in Dayton and I think I managed to turn some of it into beauty. Here are a few the other contenders that didn’t get printed and taped into the photo journal:
Next time we visit the THE PHOTO JOURNAL PROJECT, we will hit up Page 8.
On the last day of my vacation, I headed to Dolliver Memorial State Park. My mission was to complete Page 80 of THE PHOTO JOURNAL PROJECT. Good news is that it worked out!
I stopped and took this picture somewhere along P70.
The next time we delve into the THE PHOTO JOURNAL PROJECT will be about beautiful-ugly or ugly-beautiful.
Thought I’d share another one of my favorite photos from my trip to Manhattan to visit Nate and Laura.
This water tower is on top of Manhattan Hill. I think Manhattan Hill is one of my favorite places in Manhattan. Although on this recent trip I was introduced to Top of the World. I’ll definitely be checking that out during the day on my next trip to Wildcat Land.
