Back on the 4th of July Willy and I got together to blow up some stuff and photograph the result.
I didn’t turn out exactly as one had hoped. Almost as soon as we started, the sky became overcast. Then it became dark. Then it started to rain. The worst possible conditions for short exposure photography.
I’ll add that even our timing didn’t seem to be up to its normal levels. However, there are a few photos that are worth sharing from the day.
Have a look:
When we tackle this project again in 2019, we will take a totally different tact. I expect superior results.
I currently enter 3 photo “contests” a year. The Boone County Fair, The Iowa State Fair, and Pufferbilly Days. After the contests are over, a bag up the photos I entered and put them in a trunk.
While I was putting the Iowa State Fair entries in the trunk I decided it would be a good time to take Page 47 for THE PHOTO JOURNAL PROJECT.
Page 47 – Re-photograph a photograph to change its original meaning.
This is the only setup I shot for this page, therefore there aren’t any alternates for this page.
Next time we check in with THE PHOTO JOURNAL PROJECT, we will probably visit Page 40.
This is your reminder that this week’s WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE theme is WILD ANIMAL:
A WILD ANIMAL picture is a picture of an animal that isn’t a pet, or isn’t a farm animal. I would add that isn’t in the zoo either.
REMINDER: I won’t be publishing the submission for WILD ANIMAL until Tuesday.
Happy photo harvesting!
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.
