NYC – Three

Here is another collection of images from my trip to New York City with Jesse back in 2011. These pictures were all taken around the Statue of Liberty.

Here is another collection of images from my trip to New York City with Jesse back in 2011. Most of these pictures are taken around Ellis Island, but some are taken where all the white collar criminals hang out. It was scary hanging out in such a bad neighborhood, but we got in and out without anybody getting us involved in shorting stocks.

The pictures in this collection are in a folder called New York City. These pictures are from a trip I took with Jesse to visit my cousin Sarah and her beau Tim. They live in Manhattan. We made this trip in 2011 and I thought that I’d probably go out and visit every couple of years. I haven’t been back since, and that is really pathetic.

There are also pictures in this collection I took with a pinhole camera.

Pocahontas County Auxiliary Images Vol. 1

Several weeks back I cruised around Pocahontas County harvesting their town signs. Pocahontas County is the home of the most awesome statue in Iowa. It is also home to one of the worst statues in Iowa. In this collection you will see the most awesome statue in Iowa.

March Misc.

As I’ve indicated before, the 2011 folders are a disaster. These images cover most of the March 2011 folders. These are mostly pictures that were taken for the RANDOM WEEKLY PHOTO EXPERIMENT (now called THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE), but a few were taken for a PERSONAL PHOTO PROJECT.

Hancock County Auxiliary Images Vol. 3

Here is the final collection of auxiliary images I took while harvesting the town signs of Hancock County. Although I would say about 50% of these pictures were taken in other counties. Like Winnebago County or Cerro Gordo County or Worth County.

Hancock County Auxiliary Images Vol. 1

Several weeks back I cruised around Hancock County harvesting their town signs. It was a solo trip. Some of these pictures were taken in Hamilton County. I stopped in Webster City to take a picture of their courthouse. Here is the first collection of auxiliary images from this road trip:

This is something that has bothered me ever since I’ve seen it. The One Nation Under God wall. That seems fine to me. But why did they think it was necessary to add “The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob”. Do they not respect Hindu or Sikh or the other over 200 religions recognized by the United States Military? Is it necessary to put up a stinger that says, “Screw you Buddhist veterans!”

I don’t think so.

And my actual theory is that this was a clumsy attempt to be Islamophobic. Although I believe that Moslems would argue that they do worship the “God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.” I mean after all, Abraham (Ibrahim) is the second most referenced person in the Qu’ran. Even bad attempts at Islamaphobia are disgraceful.

But maybe I’m wrong. Maybe the people of Britt just really hate Wiccan Veterans. Either way, it ruins what is otherwise a beautiful park giving tribute to veterans.
