12December2010

I didn’t take many pictures in the month of December in 2010, so I decided to just do the entire month and combine all the folders into one mega sized post. There are pictures in here from a family portrait fundraiser (that was not a huge success) for the youth group. There are a few pictures taken on Christmas Eve around the church. Then a bunch of pictures taken for different THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE, back then known as THE RANDOM WEEKLY PHOTO EXPERIMENT.

It is hard to say what next Saturday’s walk down memory lane will involve. It looks like 2011’s organization was really bad. We’ll see what happens. There might just be a ton of 2011 images lost. Hope not, but it is certainly a possibility.

2010-11-22

Most of the pictures from the folder 2010-11-22 are from when I took some pictures of the Baiers around Iowa State’s beautiful campus.

A Coat Borrowed from James Dean

Back in early May I went down to Jester Park because I had heard reports that some baby bison were wandering around down there. It turned out that they were there, but they never really got near enough to the fence for me to get a decent picture of them. However, I did get plenty of pictures of the elk to make up for it.

Jester Park is definitely one of my favorite parks in central Iowa. The whole area around the buffalo and elk is awesome to visit. If you haven’t been, I’d recommend it strongly.

2010-11-15 & 2010-11-18

There was really only one picture in the folder 2010-11-15, so I decided to include 2010-11-18 in this post. The picture in the folder 2010-11-15 is a picture of Jill holding her flute that I took for THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE, back then known as the RANDOM WEEKLY PHOTO EXPERIMENT. The pictures in the folder 2010-11-18 are from the 2010 Philanthropy Day.

2021 Iowa State Fair Photography Salon Personal Results

By the time this publishes, my entries in this year’s Iowa State Fair Photography Salon should be safely in my possession. It seems like a good time to share what pictures I entered and how they fared.


2021 Iowa State Fair Photography Salon -
Class 45: Planes, Trains & Automobiles – Honorable Mention

2021 Iowa State Fair Photography Salon
Class 22: Black & White People – Selected for Display

Iowa State Fair Photography Salon 2021
Class 17: Plants, Flowers & Trees – Honorable Mention

2021 Iowa State Fair Photography Salon
Class 13: USA Places & Landscapes – Not Selected for Display

I’m not going into the picture of my Mom that I entered, but probably will in a later post. I don’t think she would have liked to have a picture of her entered, but I also know she would have gotten over it pretty quickly.

I’ll just concentrate on the picture that didn’t get in. It was the one that I was most confident would get accepted for display, which meant it was doomed from the beginning. I entered it based mostly on the fact that it was the most commented on picture from the 2021 Photography 139 Calendar. I will never know why it wasn’t accepted for display, but I have a feeling it it because the highlights are overblown. Oh well, I guess it is time to start thinking on the 2022 Iowa State Fair Photography Salon.

2010-10-25

The folder 2010-10-25 includes pictures of a vacation I took to Minnesota. It is mostly pictures of a trip I took to the sculpture garden in Minneapolis with Becca, but it also includes pictures of Bethany and an old beau. I will be sharing the sculpture garden pictures and not the pictures of the old beau.

2010-10-18 & 2010-10-19

There was really only one picture of consequence in the folder 2010-10-18, so I decided to combine it with the folder 2010-10-19. The pictures in the folder 2010-10-19 are from a road trip I took to Kalona with my Mom. We also stopped in Riverside and the Czech Village in Cedar Rapids. I do miss those trips to Kalona.
