I’m in North Kansas City tonight. Yesterday I stayed in Des Moines. I walked around downtown Des Moines and took this photo for Dogwood Photography’s Weekly Challenge:
Artistic: Shadows – The opposite of light is dark, the absence of light is shadow. Interpret this into a masterpiece.
The alley is completely in shadow in contrast to the building at the end of the alley that is sunlit.
I had jambalaya at the Court Brew Pub in Des Moines last night. I had a choice of mild, traditional, or hot. I’m glad that I chose mild. Traditional would have been painful. Hot would have been fatal. The jambalaya came in a huge bowl with a large and tasty cornbread muffin. It had chicken, andouille sausage, ham, shrimp, okra, rice and who knows what else. It was very good although I didn’t completely enjoy the texture of the okra. I also had two IPAs brewed on site: Honest Lawyer IPA. I chose the IPA because my cousin is a lawyer in Iowa and is completely honest. That makes sense doesn’t it?
Tonight I ate in a sports bar that advertises itself – rightly so – as a sports museum. I didn’t eat at this Subway. I saw it on my walk home. I think it makes a nice photo.
