Was in central Iowa visiting family for Memorial Day. Driving home in the evening and the sun started peeking out from behind the clouds as I was approaching the Adel exit, so I stopped to take a few pics at the Iowa Veterans Cemetery.
Drove on Interstate 29 today for the first time since the section near Honey Creek, Iowa, opened up since being closed due to flood damage. It’s been more than 10 weeks since the flooding started and water levels are still high. And, yes, that is a farm field, not a lake.
Made a trip to central Iowa to set out flowers for my mom, step-mom, grandparents, and brother. Hoping the flowers don’t blow away before Memorial Day.
Saw this while leaving work tonight. My first thought was the movie, “Vacation.” Then I saw the Google Maps logo. So I’ll assume that’s not a dead body on top of the car.
Drive home from work took a bit longer tonight. To get home, I have to drive a few miles eastbound to the Neola exit to turn around westbound to get back to Council Bluffs. Traffic was backed up for miles. Westbound traffic was exiting at Neola to take a county road around the fire. AndContinue reading “Truck Fire”
Spent the morning at the Desert Dome at the Henry Doorly zoo. I’m glad I purchased an annual pass for the zoo. It;s pleasant to just show up for a bit in the morning, spend some quality time at one or two exhibits, and leave before it gets too hot or too crowded, and notContinue reading “Desert Dome”
My Olympus cameras had “Art” filters built into them. Never had any use for them while working as a photojournalist. My Fuji cameras have similar cheesy type filters, but Fuji calls theirs “Advanced” filters. Not sure if I have much use for them, but might as well play with them. The first one I playedContinue reading ““Advanced” filters”
So this showed up outside my door this morning. Even doing hail-Mary on my tippy toes I couldn’t see inside the nest. But maybe soon I’ll have some bird pics to post.
As I reflect back on my personal challenge of producing 35 photos in 35 days, all shot with a 35mm lens, I appreciate the quality of the lens and I’m glad to have it in my line-up. And it has been quite liberating to concentrate on using only one lens. But I have not fallenContinue reading “35/35/35 #35: Reflections”
At work today, someone asked me if I knew what kind of flowering tree it was that we have out back. I said, “We have a flowering tree out back?” Shot this photo after work. I think it might be a cherry blossom. Have I mentioned how much I like the tilty screens that areContinue reading “35/35/35 #33: Cherry Blossom”
Have I been lazy during some of the days during this personal photo challenge? Yes, I have. Has today been my laziest day, yet? Yes, it has been. Was dinner good tonight? It was damn good!
