I've started reading a new biography on the artist Grant Wood, who was born and raised about 15 miles from here. And that reminded me that I had some photos of the main street of this town (population 180).

Mary and I took a walk through the arboretum at Des Moines Water Works Park this afternoon. According to their web site, the trees were collected by the late Arie den Boer, a renowned horticulturist, and includes approximately 300 varieties of cra...

I walked past an event last week on the steps of the state judicial building by a group urging people to vote out three Supreme Court justices who last year issued a decision providing gay Iowans with the same rights as the rest of us. Unfortunate...

It feels like I've been shooting so much stuff lately I'm just a little burnt out with the camera. So, I was just playing around with our cat, Xavier, and decided to work a little bit with my flash (I prefer using natural light 90+% of t...

Nothing too inspired tonight, just messing around with our new Scrabble board. Although I'm loving the depth of field possibilities with this 50mm f1.8 lens. (I didn't add up how many points I would have gotten by spelling out 365.)

I completed my "self challenge" of taking photos at the Pappajohn Sculpture Park, although this piece is not actually in the park. It is a couple of blocks wes...

It seemed as if this helicopter was in the air almost non-stop filming scenes for the movie.

Filming was underway on the new Transformers movie when we were in Chicago. In fact, this was just a block or two away from our hotel ... we could see st...

Title: Willy
Artist: Tony Smith

I completed my "self challenge" of taking photos at the Pappajohn Sculpture Park. My self-imposed rules were simple: (1) only the sculpture and the sky could be in the photo; (2) the photos posted...

Title: Thinker on a Rock

On my way home this afternoon, the sky was almost perfectly blue. So, I stopped at the Pappajohn Sculpture Park. I have several photos from there on Flickr; the place is a gift that keeps on giving,...

Another shot from the Italian-American Festival, this one of the team Bocce competition. I mostly liked the mix of people looking on as the player bowls the Bocce ball, especially the little girl wanting to play in the sand.

There are a couple of stables near our home and, while out for a walk a couple of young riders were practicing jumps. I didn't want to get too close and disturb them, so unfortunately there was a fence blocking part of the view which explains...

We spent four days on the road visiting colleges our son Sam is interested in attending next year. Which means four days worth of 365 project photos selected from photos I took during our campus tours.

Our first stop was Northwestern University i...

This metal cube sculpture is located in an open plaza at the headquarters of the Principal Financial Group (the building visible in the background was designed by Helmut Jahn).

I was completely uninspired to take a 365 photo today. This was the first time in quite a while that I just hopped in the car and drove around hoping to catch something interesting. No such luck, so I just stopped at the base of the State Capitol,...

I didn't have a chance to take any photos during the day and then it stormed during the evening. So, I simply played around with some images of the rain on the glass door leading to our back deck. The glow on the right comes from an outside l...

Looking up the corner of the new $250 million, 600,000 square-foot headquarters for Wellmark Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance in downtown Des Moines. As a piece of architecture it's a nice addition to the city, and will be very dramatic at ni...
