One of the photo projects I worked on in early 2018 was grabbing miscellaneous pictures for the Boone First United Methodist Church Directory.
The person in charge of putting the directory together wanted some pictures of the Bell Choir and some pictures of Doug sermonizing. That is why these pictures below exist:
After church I went to the Sharp farm. I believe to take a picture of an unpictured outhouse.
There are so many images in the folder called 07-20-08 that I’m going to split the next 2 folders into 3 posts, most likely.
The images in this post are from Ames on the Half Shell with Kountertop, the Iowa Games, some softball, and the Boone County Fair.
Kountertop was one of my favorite bands that played Ames on the Half Shell. To be honest, Ames on the Half Shell was a collection of nondescript classic rock cover bands. 1 band was just about indistinguishable from the next. Which worked for the target audience of Ames on the Half Shell. They just want to get a good buzz and listen to music that doesn’t challenge them.
There were a few exceptions, but they were pretty rare.
Kountertop did fit into the mold of classic rock cover band, but they at least had some style. Plus, they were skilled musicians.
The softball pictures are from a game between Boone and Madrid. It was a battle of some Bennett family friends. The Howards from Boone and the Madduxes from Madrid.
The Boone County Fair pictures were taken with Becky and some of her family. You should be warned that there are some bunny pictures in there. If you don’t like bunny pictures, turn back now!
By adding these photos to THE PHOTOGRAPHY 139 PHOTO GALLERY, I was able to restore the following historic “An Artist’s Notebook” entries to their original glory:
Next Saturday’s walk down memory lane will involve even more softball, pictures from my first mission trip, and possibly a trip to the Miller farm.
Yesterday, Iowa State returned to Jack Trice Stadium and played much, much, much better than they did against Iowa.
They played #5 Oklahoma, a legitimate national title contender and kept the game within striking distance until the final 2 minutes of the game.
I took plenty of pictures of the game day, but I didn’t take any 2nd half pictures. I’m not superstitious, but I’m a littlesticious. The less I touched the camera, the better Iowa State did. So I didn’t touch the camera at all in the 2nd half.
Here are some pictures from the day:
Hopefully the Cyclones can get into the win column next Saturday against Akron, but that same Akron team just went on the road and beat Northwestern. Iowa State never catches a break.
It is true that Northwestern is a part of the complete trash Big Ten West (Iowa and Minnesota are the only schools in that division that won yesterday and Iowa was playing a bad FCS team and Minnesota was playing Miami and not the one in Florida). Nebraska lost to Troy. One guy. Beat the vaunted Corned Huskers.
While Iowa State should certainly still win, the game suddenly looks much harder than it did 2 weeks ago
I took many more pictures from the game. You can peruse them by looking at the link below:
For those that have been asking. We are hoping to have Taco Tailgate this year on either October 13 for the West Virginia game or October 27 for the Texas Tech game. I just found out that I am going to a Foo Fighters concert on October 12, so October 27 is the most likely scenario.
I am also still looking at arranging a road trip to the November 3 game against Kansas. Contact me if you are interested.
