On the last day of the Iowa State Fair, Jesse and I went down there and spent several hours down there before picking up my pictures from the Iowa State Fair Photography Salon. I barely made it in to the Cultural Center to get my photos because they started closing the building down at 7, which is when you were supposed to be able to go in and get your photos. I was one of the few people that let in and got my photos. I was lucky.
Here are some pictures from the day:
I’m already looking forward to the 2022 Iowa State Fair. I hope we are completely through this pandemic by then so I can enjoy the Fair more freely.
This is your reminder that this week’s THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE theme is ‘SCAPE.
REMINDER: NEXT MONDAY IS LABOR DAY. WHILE THE BANK MAY TAKE A DAY OFF AND THE SCHOOLS MIGHT TAKE THE DAY OFF AND MOST OF THE GOVERNMENT MIGHT TAKE THE DAY OFF AND THE COMPUTER MINE MIGHT TAKE THE DAY OFF… PHOTOGRAPHY 139 DOES NOT TAKE THE DAY OFF. EVERY DAY I’M HUSTLING. PLAN WHEN YOU SUBMIT YOUR PHOTO ACCORDINGLY!
‘SCAPE! What a great theme for Year 8 of THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE!
But what is a ‘SCAPE picture? Do you mean landscape? Don’t worry, I’m about to feed you baby bird.
Yes, a landscape picture could be a ‘SCAPE picture, but a ‘SCAPE picture isn’t necessarily a landscape picture. The theme reveal picture is a picture of a landscape that I took high up in the Loess Hills on Saturday. However it is the apostrophe before the SCAPE that is key here. You don’t have to limit your possibilities to a landscape. There are other types of ‘SCAPEs. There are citySCAPEs. There are also waterSCAPES and skySCAPEs and even inSCAPEs.
And if you don’t know what a landSCAPE is, it is this:
“all the visible features of an area of countryside or land, often considered in terms of their aesthetic appeal.”
Happy photo harvesting!
