United Way Wall

A few weeks back I posted about a collection of photos of mine that grace the wall of the United Way of Story County’s lobby wall. I finally got a chance to get down there to see the wall in its glory on Saturday before Shannon and I went to see Rent.

I promised a picture of the wall. Here is that picture:




If you wish to see the wall and all of its glory in person, this map will help:

Tamron SP60mm f/2 Di II 1:1 Macro Auto Focus Lens

There has been a void in my computer bag since last August when my favorite lens went kaput. I finally got around to replacing it recently.

Sorrow and Gladness - 2012
Sorrow and Gladness – 2012

My annual trip to the State Center Rose Garden was kind of bittersweet. I went earlier than normal because of how early flowers have been blooming this year. As it turns out, I probably went too early and it was definitely too windy to get as many great pictures as last year.

Another bittersweet aspect of this trip is that I normally make this trip with my Mom. However, this year I made this trip on the way to bring her home from the hospital. We’ll make this trip again together next year.

The rest of the Sorrow and Gladness – 2012 Series:

I was a little disappointed to find out the the State Center Rose Garden wasn’t on Foursquare, but I have since remedied that situation. You’re welcome America!

United Way Wall

Shannon contacted me about contributing some photos to the wall near her desk at the United Way of Story County office a couple months back.

I was able to get those pictures ordered for her and she got them on the wall a couple weeks back. I don’t have a picture of the wall at this time as I haven’t had a chance to go see it, but here is a general idea of what it looks like:




To see those pictures a tad bit larger:












Hush

Cry Gratitude





When I get a chance to see the new Photography 139 Gallery, I will post a photo.
