NYC – One

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.

Triplet + Jonah Birthday Party

A few weeks back the Triplets and Jonah had a birthday party at the KOA near Adel. I wasn’t able to make the party because it was schedule for the same time as the Iowa State-Oklahoma State football game that I was scheduled to attend. But I did have time to drive down to Adel and hang out for about 90 minutes before I had to head to Ames to witness Iowa State beat a top ten Cowboy team.

Here are some pictures from my hang time:

Having everybody meet up in kind of a central location and spend the weekend was a pretty cool idea I thought. I hope it happens again on a weekend where Iowa State doesn’t have a home game, so I can be around more than 90 minutes. It was also really cold that weekend. I mean not really cold, but it was definitely colder than you would want.

Derrick told me that KOA campsites suck and hate children, but that wasn’t my experience, in the 90 minutes I was there. I would consider staying there on a trip sometime. I didn’t know they rented cabins and tents.

It was the first time I’d seen many of these people since before the pandemic. I hope it doesn’t take so long to see them again. Although I pretty sure I’m going down to Manhattan for Nate’s graduation in about a month.

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.

Tenderloin Appreciation Society – Indianola Field Work

Last Friday night, as soon as the whistle blew ending my shift in the computer mine, I took off like a shot for Indianola. I was going there to take pictures of Kyle’s last football game, but I was also going there to try a new tenderloin.

The Iowa Pork Producers Association recently announced their winner for the 2021 Iowa’s Best Breaded Pork Tenderloin. The winner was Victoria Station in Harlan. The runner-up was Larsen’s Pub in Elk Horn.

The other finalists were Old Road Cafe & Bar in Emerson, Stalker’s Pub in Miles, and Z’s Eatery and Draught Haus in Indianola.

On Friday, we dined at Z’s Eatery and Draught Haus in Indianola.

My 5 word review is that it is a good but not great tenderloin, however, I’m not sure it is fair to really judge them for reasons I will get into.

Here are some cruddy cell phone pictures:

A few things to not right off the bat. While Andy, Shannon, and Shannon’s Jason were all in attendance only Shannon gets credit for tenderloining. Andy wussed out at the last second and Shannon’s Jason is on some kind of diet.

Second, it was a little bit of a struggle to get the last few bites of this tenderloin down. Not because the tenderloin wasn’t good, but because we ordered two appetizers. I assumed we would get plenty of help on them, but Shannon’s Jason and his diet only allowed him to take a few hunks of meat off the loaded fries. He passed on the mozzarella logs.

Then, did I mention that Andy was being a wuss? He was also little to no help on the loaded fries because they had mustard and pickles on them. So I was forced, as a man of honor, to eat more than my equitable share.

However, I did finish the last few bites to get that picture of the empty plate. I did these even though I was given ample peer pressure to just move the remains of the sandwich off the plate and take a picture of a lie. I refused to take a picture of such a filthy lie! You know that I always speak 100% the truth. When it comes to tenderloins, it is 110% the truth. I ate every last bite of that tenderloin and took a picture of an empty plate. Empty that is, with the exception of a big old helping of the truth. Not all HEROes wear capes. Some indulge heavily on fried pork goodness.

But you already knew about my innate goodness, but what about the innate goodness of the tenderloin?

THE GOOD

+ Good bun.
+ Right kind of bun.
+ Good cut of meat. Good thickness.
+ Proper meat to bun ratio.
+ Good breading.

THE BAD

+ Bland tasting.
+ Bun was toasted, but barely.

THE UGLY

+ No onions

So the restaurant wasn’t serving onions because of the recent outbreak of food poisonings caused by onions. The onion is an essential part of the tenderloin experience. It makes it hard to judge this tenderloin completely. Perhaps onions would have made the sandwich less bland. In fact, I know it would have.

I do have high hopes for the winning tenderloin in Harlan. It is served in a 131 year-old steakhouse in what looks to be an old train depot. It is also served on Texas Toast and garlic aioli.

I’ll be getting that trip put on my calendar very soon. Jesse and Bill have already signed on. If you are interested, let me know. My guess is it will probably be a Sunday supper as they are only open from 4-9 on Sundays and Saturdays for the foreseeable future are dedicated to the Iowa State Cyclones.

This is your reminder that this week’s THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE theme is HEREO:


WEEL 320 - HERO

But what is a HERO photo? A HERO photo is a picture of somebody that is considered a HERO. Might be a personal HERO of yours. Don’t everybody ask to take my picture at once. Once at a time… Or it can be a picture of a fictional character. It can be somebody you know in everyday life or like in the theme reveal image it can be somebody you have never met. This week is Halloween. I bet you will see all sorts of people out and about dressed like HEROes. That is a happy coincidence, though. The order of the themes were selected randomly last November.

Happy photo harvesting!

WPC – WEEK 319 – GREEN

REMINDER!!! This week and next week are you chance to help mold the next 52 weeks for THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE. To do that leave suggestions for themes in the COMMENTS section of this here journal entry. There were some good suggestions last week and one truly terrible one. Terrible because it was overly specific about a certain species of animal and not because of my alleged feelings towards that specific species of animal.

GREEN is a pretty gosh dang easy theme, so hopefully there are lots of submissions.

But you didn’t come here to listen to me talk all tommyrot about submission rates. You came to see the submissions:

While considering your HERO image, consider the following quote:

– George Bernard Shaw

Good luck capturing your HERO!

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 HERO in this place that that records many of my personal idols next Monday.

WPC – WEEK 318 – PASSION

In the next few weeks I will be compiling a list of the next 52 themes. If you have ideas for me to consider, place it in the COMMMENTS section of this here journal entry. I might not use them, but I will definitely give them the consideration that they deserve. I like to swap out at least half the themes from year to year. For this year’s set of 52 themes, only Andy submitted submissions. Makes a guy kinda sad.

PASSION is a pretty abstract theme, so I wasn’t sure how good participation rates would be. However, there were several people that have a PASSION about their PASSION. And a couple people that texted me that they have no PASSION in their life and furthermore don’t even know anybody that has a PASSION in their life. I guess those people don’t know me and I’m not sure how they got my phone number. But don’t worry, they have been blocked and reported.

WEEK 319 - GREEN
GREEN

GREEN! What a great theme! But what is a GREEN image? Simply enough, a GREEN image is any image where the color GREEN is an important part of the compositional elements. It can be the main subject, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be. The word GREEN also has multiple meanings, if you want to explore that as well.

As you are considering your GREEN image, think on the following quote for inspiration:

Green in the prime color of the world, and that from which loveliness arises.
-Pedro Calderon de la Barca

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.

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 GREEN in this place that tries to be as environmentally friendly as possible the next Monday.

WPC – WEEK 317 – TIME

Need to start today by wishing everybody a Happy Indigenous Peoples’ Day and remember F*CK Christopher Columbus. For raping 9 and 10 year old girls. For the murder of 8 million Arawahs, while enslaving them. For cannibalism. For feeding babies to dogs. For using biological weapons to kill 97 million people. Yeah, F*CK Christopher Columbus.

But this day isn’t about reminding people that Christopher Columbus was one of the most evil persons in history and isn’t worth of veneration and should be thought of in the way that people think of Hitler or Stalin or the Confederacy. It is to celebrate the people who first called this land home. To remember the struggles and tragedies they endured. To honor their place in and contributions to the shared story of America.

And for that reason, I share the amazing Navajo prayer Walking in Beauty:

In beauty I walk
With beauty before me I walk
With beauty behind me I walk
With beauty above me I walk
With beauty around me I walk
It has become beauty again
Today I will walk out, today everything negative will leave me
I will be as I was before, I will have a cool breeze over my body.
I will have a light body, I will be happy forever, nothing will hinder me.
I walk with beauty before me. I walk with beauty behind me.
I walk with beauty below me. I walk with beauty above me.
I walk with beauty around me. My words will be beautiful.
In beauty all day long may I walk.
Through the returning seasons, may I walk.
On the trail marked with pollen may I walk.
With dew about my feet, may I walk.
With beauty before me may I walk.
With beauty behind me may I walk.
With beauty below me may I walk.
With beauty above me may I walk.
With beauty all around me may I walk.
In old age wandering on a trail of beauty, lively, may I walk.
In old age wandering on a trail of beauty, living again, may I walk.
My words will be beautiful…

Happy Indigenous Peoples’ Day!

WEEK 318 - PASSION
PASSION

PASSION! What a great theme for Year 8 of THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE!

But what is a PASSION picture? First we need to establish the difference between love and PASSION. What separates PASSION from love isn’t just a warm feeling about something or somebody. PASSION is what you are willing to suffer for. That is why the movie is called THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST. Because Jesus’ love for us was so intense that he was willing to suffer for us. In the theme reveal picture it shows the result of Jesus’ PASSION for us as he has been lowered from the cross into Mary’s arms. I’m sure there are many things in your life that you love. But this challenge asks you to take a picture of something you love so much that you are willing to suffer for it. Remember though the PASSION in your submission doesn’t have to be your own. It can be somebody else’s PASSION as well.

While considering your options for a PASSION submission, consider the following quote:

It is obvious that we can no more explain a passion to a person who has never experienced it than we can explain light to the blind.
-T.S. Eliot

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.

WEEK 315 - DREAM JOB
DREAM JOB

DREAM JOB! What a great theme for Year 8 of THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE.

Seems like an apropos challenge as I have been thinking much on my own future lately.

But what is a DREAM JOB image? This was a theme suggested by Andy. The idea of this picture is to take an image of something that represents you (or somebody else’s) DREAM JOB. If you could get paid to do anything, what would it be. The picture can be of somebody doing that DREAM JOB or maybe just some of the equipment used in that DREAM JOB. It might be more of an abstract than most of the themes, but should still be plenty easy. Unless you don’t believe in dreams.

While thinking about your DREAM JOB image, think on this quote:

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.
C.S. Lewis

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.
