A Photo Journal – Henry Carroll – Page 111

A few weeks back Elainie was home from San Antonio. She stopped by to pose for THE 9 EMOTIONS PROJECT. Her friend Tiffani accompanied her. It provided the perfect time to tackle Page 111 for THE PHOTO JOURNAL PROJECT:

Page 111 – Compose a picture with the intention of displaying it upside down.

Only 1 picture can be physically adhered into the physical THE PHOTO JOURNAL. However, I did take a few more picture that I thought I would share:

This is your weekly reminder that this week’s WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE theme is ENTERTAINMENT:



ENTERTAINMENT!


An ENTERTAINMENT photo is any photo of some form of ENTERTAINMENT. Movies! Music! Television! Sports! Games! Whatever! As long as you find ENTERTAINMENT in your subject,then it qualifies. You will not need to cut off a gladiator’s head and then scream at me, “Are you not ENTERTAINED!”.

Happy photo harvesting!

The 9 Emotions Project – Elainie

Elainie came home from San Antonio for a visit a few weeks back. It was an excellent opportunity for her to finally pose for THE 9 EMOTION PROJECT and complete the set of my sisters’ children.

For those of you that have forgotten, these are the 9 emotions:

I don’t have any other 9 EMOTIONS PROJECT shoots in the can. Recruiting people could be a good project for the winter when playing in the indoor studio seems so much more appealing!

I already have my eyes on a few people!

2017 Pufferbilly Days Petting Zoo

This is the final collection of photos from the 2017 Pufferbilly Days.

These pictures are from the petting zoo, which is one of my favorite parts of Pufferbilly Days. Behind the Photo Contest and the food. Although the food wasn’t really all that great this year.

But I digress…

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:



ENTERTAINMENT!


ENTERTAINMENT! What a great theme! But what is an ENTERTAINMENT photo? An ENTERTAINMENT photo would be a photo of anybody being ENTERTAINMENTed. Or things that you use for ENTERTAINMENT. Like movies or music or arson. I’m not here to judge. Okay, I do judge bad taste in music and movies. Just being honest.

I look forward to seeing your 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 due date. 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 showed class, taste, and sophistication this week by signing up for a Photography 139 email subscription. I’ll try and do better next week.

+++++++

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 entertaining Monday.

This is the final collection of 2016 images to publish. I mean I could publish the images I took for the Computer Mine Holiday Card, but nobody wants to see that.

We’re almost to the end of Sunday blogs. Once I get through all of the 2017 images, I will go back to taking Sundays off.

This is the final set of photos I took for Desdamona:

Announcement.

Union Theater Movie Night for October will be Sunday, October 28. The theme for October is horror.

The B Film wilm will be INCUBUS.

A little about INCUBUS:

Incubus (Esperanto: Inkubo) is a 1966 black-and-white American horror film filmed entirely in the constructed language Esperanto. It was directed by Leslie Stevens, creator of The Outer Limits, and stars William Shatner, shortly before he would begin his work on Star Trek. The film’s cinematography was by Conrad Hall, who went on to win three Academy Awards for his work on the films Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, American Beauty and Road to Perdition.

The use of Esperanto was intended to create an eerie, other-worldly feeling,[2] and Stevens prohibited dubbing the film into other languages; however, on the Special Features section of the DVD the makers claim that Esperanto was used because of perceived greater international sales.

Incubus was the second feature film primarily using Esperanto. (The first, Angoroj (“Agonies”), appeared in 1964.)

Esperanto speakers are generally disappointed by the pronunciation of the language by the cast of Incubus.[2]

The film was considered to be lost for many years, until a copy was found in Paris in 1996.

The feature film will be the recent Criterion release of SISTERS.

A little about SISTERS:

Sisters (released as Blood Sisters in the United Kingdom) is a 1973 American psychological horror-slasher film[4] directed by Brian De Palma and starring Margot Kidder, Jennifer Salt, and Charles Durning. The plot focuses on a French Canadian model whose separated conjoined twin is suspected of a brutal murder witnessed by a newspaper reporter in Staten Island.

Co-written by De Palma and Louisa Rose, the screenplay for the film was inspired by the Soviet Siamese twins Masha and Dasha Krivoshlyapova and features narrative and visual references to several films by Alfred Hitchcock.[5] Filmed on location in Staten Island, New York City, the film prominently features split-screen compositions (also present in subsequent De Palma films such as Carrie), and was scored by frequent Hitchcock collaborator Bernard Herrmann.

Released in the spring of 1973, Sisters received praise from critics who noted its adept performances and prominent use of homage. It marked the first thriller for De Palma, who followed it with other shocking, graphic thrillers, and went on to become a cult film in the years after its release.

Jesse is said to be bringing chili.

All are invited!

The projector rolls at 6.

07-20-07

The images from the folder 07-20-07 run the gamut from pictures from the first mission trip I ever went on to pictures from the Miller Farm to pictures from a RAGBRAI stop in Ames.

The mission trip photos are from Cedar Rapids. I went with an adult group from my church.

The Miller Farm pictures were taken before June and Dean moved off the farm and into town.

The mission trip to Cedar Rapids was after a flood. After working the second day, you drove home. One the second day we worked in a house where they had to pull a Youth Group out of because they found pornography.

I still can’t describe how bad that house smelled. The family had left their cat behind. It survived the initial flood. Then it came back to the house. Then it crapped all over the house. Well, mostly behind the couch. The food was still in the fridge. You could stand on the other side of the street and still smell the house.

By adding these pictures to the Photography 139 Photography Gallery, I was able to restore the following historic “An Artist’s Notebook” entries to their original glory:

Next week’s walk down memory lane will involve a vacation I made to Kentucky.

A few weeks back when I was taking the pictures for Page 49 for THE PHOTO JOURNAL PROJECT, I also took pictures for Page 48:

To take this picture I cranked down the saturation, contrast, and sharpness levels on my camera.

Only 1 picture can be physically adhered into the physical A PHOTO JOURNAL, but I did take several more. Have a gander:
