It looks a little bit like the scenery in the Kevin Costner movie. This is at the Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge. In addition to returning 5,000 acres of land back to native prairie, it is also home to herds of buffalo and elk. On the day we ...

Just took some downtown black-and-white shots tonight. This is outside of Centro, an Italian restaurant owned by a chef who is gaining more and more national recognition. The place is one of our favorites, and is frequented by presidential candida...

Part of a display where you could watch Hoover's inaugural address, and its message a short time before the start of the Great Depression.

An outtake of my 365 project photo from yesterday that was a little darker and got rid of most of the background beyond the skate house but still showing some motion from the skaters. I'm not sure which one I prefer.

Sometimes an interesting photo is just dumb luck. I went over the Roosevelt High School to take some photos for a blog and e-newsletter that I'm help to set up for a parent volunteer group. I stood by the flagpole in front of the school in or...

We took a walk at Saylorville Lake this afternoon, which turned out to be the only real 'photo op' for the day. I just liked how these white fungus (fungi?) looked on the bark of a fallen tree, with some sunshine poking down from above.

The Butter Cow at the Iowa State Fair is one of its oldest and most popular traditions, and therefore one of the most photographed. (If you're reading this and are not from Iowa, it is exactly what the name suggests: a cow carved out of butte...

Some running trophies lined up on a shelf in our family room. Golden tones, bokeh, DOF ... this photo has it all.  :)  Although I hadn't noticed until I was editing the photo that the statue of the runner is cross-eyed.

Several years ago, Mary and the kids were out for a walk and saw this old globe about to be thrown out with a neighbor's garbage. So, they brought it back and it's been an artifact in our home for more than a decade.

The globe is made b...

A protest in front of the White House in support of protesters and rebels throughout the Middle East. There were signs and flags representing Libya, Yemem, Syria, Saudia Arabia and Egypt. I felt sorry for one lone protester nearby who was urging p...

Took these photos in part to practice some long exposure night shots (not that thrilled with the results) but also to get a few photos of this building at night.

The Des Moines Public Library's main branch in downtown was designed by David C...

As I head into the final days of my 365 project, I thought I'd pay tribute to some of the photography books I've collected over the past year. It's been fun studying some of the past and current greats in the field.

People viewing "Paris Street; Rainy Day, 1877" by Gustave Caillebotte, one of the first major works of art you see when entering the museum (note a couple of Renoir's in the background).

I always think it's odd that pe...

Two very different bottles of bubbly to toast the New Year. On the left is a bottle of Montaudon champagne, specifically their Rose blend which is half Chardonnay and half Pinot Noir. I read that Montaudon was the official champagne of Josephine B...

At one point this week there were winter storm warning in 33 states. We got off relatively easy here, with only about 7 inches of snow. But, no matter how much or little snow might fall and how well we shovel the driveway, there always seems to be...
