WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – WEEK 148 – HUMOR

I knew that HUMOR was going to be a hard theme. As I write this, it would seem that many people struggled to find HUMOR in their everyday lives. I would have some commentary on that, but I’ll spare you at this time.

As I am writing this, I am sitting at home recovering from an epic performance of HAMILTON at the Civic Center and waiting for the cable guy to show up and lower my bill by $30, allegedly.

Therefore, it is possible that I will be without internet while he is upgrading my internet. If more pictures come in after I write this, I will post them at some point. Probably Friday.

But you didn’t come here to listen to me talk all tommyrot about the cable guy. You came to see the 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:


WEEK 149 - NIGHT
NIGHT


NIGHT! What a great theme! But what is a NIGHT photograph? A night photograph is any photo that is taken at NIGHT. You don’t necessarily need a tripod and long exposure, but that wouldn’t hurt.

As always, I look forward to seeing your interpretations!

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 nightly Monday.

  1. I struggled w finding a humor photo without asking someone to pose. But I did see one but was unable to take picture, thought I’d share. So I’m on a westbound train going from clinton to Missouri valley, and I’m just east of Bell Plaine going by a long time family farm that does it all, crops, cows, pigs, hay, and last year there we started seeing sheep. Well on a hot day earlier last week the sheep we out of there normal pasture maybe on purpose maybe on their own, but they had the house surrounded, the house is red brick and the entire base of house had a sheep leaning against the brick, like a white Stoney/sheep waynescoat!!! It looked like a humor picture a guy couldn’t script or do if he wanted too, why would they do this is the question????? My 1st thought was a obscure sheep tuck point service, well couldn’t use my phone on moving train(against rules) maybe you can use your imagination(the thing we were told to use as kids those of use to poor for toys) ps I love the pic of the “jogger guys” journal…reminding me to give bikers/joggers more room on the road they might be gun owners too, also reminder Boone county fair this week starting wed-sun

  2. I said this before, but I’ll say it again, “You get to see way more interesting things at your job than I do at mine.”

    I mostly get to listen to neurotic idiosyncrasies of my co-workers. But that has its moments as well.

    Willy is an angry runner and he gets in a zone. He also carries a spray for dogs, but I’m sure he would use it on humans if given a chance.
