A Photo Journal – Henry Carroll – Page 58 Beta

On the last Saturday of my vacation I corralled Jesse and we went out to McHose Park and took the second picture for Page 58 of THE PHOTO JOURNAL PROJECT:

Page 58 Beta – Take a picture of yourself pretending to be yourself.

Here are a couple of others we took during the session that won’t be physically adhered into the physic PHOTO JOURNAL:

I have a few more pages for THE PHOTO JOURNAL PROJECT taken, so I’m not sure what page I will unveil next. Leaning towards Page 33 though.

A few week’s back I went ahead and knocked out the first of 2 pictures for Page 58 of THE PHOTO JOURNAL PROJECT:


Photo Journal - Page 58 Alpha
Page 58 – Alpha – Take a picture of yourself pretending to be somebody else.

Maybe this concept is a little arrogant, but at least now all the people that keep asking me why I have a piece of duct tape on my dashboard with the word “Expectations” written on it will stop asking me about it.

Here are some other photos from the photo shoot that I like, but won’t be adhered into the physical THE PHOTO JOURNAL:

I’m not sure what page of THE PHOTO JOURNAL PROJECT we’ll tackle next.

On Labor Day I was able to take a picture for Page 59 of the Photo Journal:

Page 59 – Take a picture of yourself as yourself.

Logan assisted with the production by moving the camera here and there. Johnathan watched in a distance.

While most people will disagree, I think that I don’t take enough pictures of rubber dinosaurs. Probably should get on that.

I’m Just a Sucker with No Self-Esteem

These are the pictures that didn’t make the cut for the FAMILY theme for THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE:

The posts that are about the pictures I don’t use for THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE will take a different flavor starting next week. Some people have expressed concern that I seem to be badmouthing these photos. Next week I will take the flavor in a totally opposite direction. I bet people will miss the extreme humility of these posts in a matter of days.

For those people who like to prowl around in the Smugmug Gallery, for this run of 52 themes, I’m separating the alternates into their own album rather than dumping everything into one album. That album can be seen via the link below:

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE ALTERNATES


I hope you won’t drown in the suspense of where the new blog titles for THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE ALTERNATES will come from. I have a feeling that not many of you will get the reference immediately. That is why the Good Lord invented the Google.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – WEEK 105 – FAMILY

A pretty decent amount of submissions to ring in Year 3 of THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE (REDUX). Including a submission from first time submitter Katelyn Augustin. She also might be the youngest to ever submit as well.

A solid week of submissions!

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:



NATURE!


NATURE! What a great theme!! I don’t think I need to define NATURE for you. It is basically the great outdoors. So get out there!

As always, I look forward to seeing all the interpretations!

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.

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

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 natural Monday!

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!
