2010-08-23

The folder 2010-08-23 is absolutely stuffed to the gills. There are so many images in there I almost considered breaking it up into a couple posts, but decided against it. There are pictures in there from a trip to the Iowa State Fair and pictures of Jen and Derrick when Jen was preggers with Evie. Alexis competed in a cheerleading/tumbling competition this year.

2010-08-13, 2010-08-14, & 2010-08-16

There aren’t many images in the folders 2010-08-13 and 2010-08-14 so I decided to combine them with the folder 2010-08-16 that contains many pictures from a trip I took to the Iowa State Fair.

There are also pictures of Jesse and two of his progeny and of a moonflower.

The pictures in the folder are from when the Creek formerly known as Squaw flooded Duff Avenue in the August of 2010. I’m not being sarcastic, I just know that they recently changed the name of Squaw Creek, I just have no clue what they changed it to. Ioway maybe?

Next week’s walk down memory lane will involve flowers and Jesse, but not necessarily together.

2010-08-06 & 2010-08-09

The folders 2010-08-06 & 2010-08-09 are pretty small, so I combined them into one post. Half of them are pictures of a hibiscus. The other half are pictures of butterflies. Then there is one random picture of my feet. On a personal note, I really miss those shoes. Actually I miss any shoes that were remotely comfortable. As we are hopefully starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel for this pandemic, I’m probably going to need to invest in some shoes and some clothes. Definitely clothes.

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:


WEEL 293 - HANDS
HANDS

HANDS! Another great theme for Year 8 of THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE.

A HANDS image is pretty simple. It is merely a picture where the composition involves either HANDS or things that HANDS use, like gloves. It should be an easy theme, since almost everybody has HANDS or knows somebody with HANDS. I mean, even a clock has HANDS.

Think about the following quote while you are contemplating your image:

A man who works with his HANDS is a laborer; a man who works with his HANDS and his brain is a craftsman; but a man who works with his HANDS and his brain and his heart is an artist.
-Louis Nizer

Meditate on this quote and I have no doubt your submission will rise to the level of art!

RULES

The picture has to be taken between 12:01 PM today and 11 AM next Monday. This isn’t a curate your photos project. This is a get your butt off the couch (unless you are taking your picture from the couch) and take pictures challenge.

You can send your images to either bennett@photography139.com OR you may text them to my Pixel 5.

That is all I got, so if the good Lord’s willin’ and the creek don’t rise, we will all be sharing our idea of HANDS in this place that knows to keep its HANDS to itself next Monday.

2010-07-19

Most of the pictures in the folder 2010-07-19 are of the remains of a pair of downtown Boone buildings that caught fire. Then there are some flower pictures as well.

Good luck!

+++++++

This is the final collection of flower pictures from 2020. It is a good thing that flowers in 2021 should be coming sometime soon. There are many beginnings of flowers starting to show up in my yard. The daffodils have start to push their way through the dirt. Hopefully they will be budding and blooming in just a few short weeks.

This collection includes daisies, zinnias, dahlias, mums, and even a hollyhock and a marigold.

There are a couple of different types of pictures in the folders 2010-07-15 and 2010-07-18. Some are flower pictures and others are my attempts to take pictures of lightning.

There aren’t all that many pictures in the folders 2010-07-07 and 2010-07-12, so I decided to combine them and share them together. These are mostly flowers in these folders, but also a couple of fly pictures.

The folders 2010-06-29, 2010-06-30, & 2010-07-01 Center Street Bridge are fairly small, so I combined them all into one fair sized post. Most of them are pictures of flowers, but a few are pictures I took with Sara at or near the Center Street Bridge in Des Moines.
