Back in February I cruised around Cherokee County and O’Brien County harvesting their town signs. This is the first collection of auxiliary images from that trip. Although a good portion of the pictures from this collection were actually taken in Woodbury County.
There are still plenty more images to share from this road trip.
Time to share another collection of auxiliary images I took while cruising around Buena Vista and Palo Alto County harvesting their town signs:
Emmetsburg (I think)
The next time we hit the open road for auxiliary images from a TOWN SIGN PROJECT road trip, we will hit up Jackson County.
Back at the end of last year I cruised around the counties of Buena Vista and Palo Alto counties harvesting their town signs. Here is the first collection of auxiliary images I took on this trip:
I still have one more collection of auxiliary images to share from this trip in the future.
Back in December I met a fairly short trip (by TOWN SIGN PROJECT standards) to Iowa County to harvest their town signs. This is a collection of the auxiliary images I took while there, but there are a bunch at the beginning from Newton.
Next time we hit the open road to look at some auxiliary images, we will visit Buena Vista and Palo Alto County.
Here is the final collection of auxiliary images I took on a trip to Clinton County and southern Jackson County. Most of these images are taken in Clinton County. A few in Jackson County. I think the last three are taken in Benton County. Possibly Linn or Tama as well. But I’m pretty sure it is Benton.
The next counties we will visit through auxiliary images are Pottawattamie and Harrison.
Time for another collection of auxiliary images I took while harvesting the town signs of Clinton County and the southern part of Jackson County. All of these pictures were taken in Jackson County.
There is one more collection of images coming from this road trip.
This is your reminder that this week’s theme for THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE is HAT:
A HAT picture is just a picture that features a hat somewhere in the composition.
Don’t forget that I won’t be in a position to remind people to submit their images on Monday morning. Going to have to be some self-reliance going on here. Hopefully a ton of streaks don’t bite the dust.
Happy photo harvesting!
I promised you more information about the Great Pyramids of Iowa. Here is information from a Des Moines Register article titled: “Pyramids? Haunted angels? These are 6 of Iowa’s oddest graveyards to visit before you die.:
Three small Egyptian-style pyramids at the back of Hickory Grove Cemetery near Avery are the lone remnant of one man’s unrealized dream to be entombed inside one.
According to local records, their construction was commissioned in 1939 by newspaper publisher Axel Peterson, when he was 70 years old. Peterson’s plan was that, when he died, he and his friend, Anton Heymooler, would be placed inside, seated and facing each other with his printing press between them.
The pyramids were built, but neither Peterson nor Heymooler were buried inside. Peterson died at age 78 and was instead buried in nearby Cuba Cemetery. But the pyramids remain at Hickory Grove to this day.
Here are the rest of the pictures from this trip:
The next time we hit the open road to look at auxiliary images from THE TOWN SIGN PROJECT, we will hit Clinton County.
Several weeks back I travelled to Cedar County to harvest their town signs. On this trip I also harvested some town signs in Clinton County and Muscatine County. I also stopped and took some pictures in Benton County.
Here is the first collection of images from this road trip:
Mechanicsville – Back when I worked at the Campus Outpost of the Evil Clown Empire, one of our regular customers was a guy we called Snake cause he had a snake tattoo. Yeah, we were original. He used to come in daily and would put the moves so to speak on Jean, the Breakfast Assistant. She was not in to Snake. I like to think that Snake moved to Mechanicsville and opened a carwash. It is a small dream of mine.
Stanwood – I’ve never had the desire to get a tattoo in my life. Mostly because I’m terrified of hepatitis. That being said, seems like a reputable place.
My favorite kind of thirst trap.
Clarence – Metaphysical Geodes?
I have questions…
I’m not a military expert, but I wouldn’t paint my military aircrafts red. Would seem to make it easier to shoot them down.
The concept of this mural is one of my favorites I have seen.
Wilton – This place is literally NEVER open!
I think this is the LSD training rolling into Wilton.
There is one more collection of images from this road trip still left to share.
This is the final collection of images I took while on a road trip with Michelle to harvest the town signs of Linn and Jones County. Most of these are in Jones County, but the last two are in Linn County.
The next County we are going to visit the next time we hit the open road is Cedar County.
Several months back Vest and I cruised around Decatur County and Wayne County harvesting their town signs. This is the final collection of auxiliary images I took on this trip. All of these pictures were taken in Wayne County.
We stopped and ate a Mexican restaurant in Corydon called La Bota. It was very good and I recommend it if you are ever in the area.
The next county I will share auxiliary images from is Linn and also Jones.
