Jerry World Panorama

What you see here is a panorama of AT&T Stadium (aka Jerry World) in Dallas, Texas during  halftime of the Advocare Classic College Football Kickoff game between the University of Michigan Wolverines and the University of Florida Gators for 2017.  The marching band of the Michigan Wolverines are on the field in this shot.  The Wolverines won the game by a score of 33-17.  GO BLUE!!!

The shot itself is made up of 17 photos take left to right panning the field and then a few that took in the roof.  Then I had to distort the roof by sort of smushing it because the photomerge process in Photoshop really stretched it out.

I hope you enjoy the photo and thanks for dropping by!

Field of Dreams House in Morning

This is another shot of the iconic house from the movie "Field of Dreams".  The house is at the actual movie site in Dyersville, IA.  Most of the shots I got from that place were of the baseball diamond with the house in the background or of the house itself.  To get anything with both as well as the cornfields, I think one would need a drone.  I'll have to put that on the wish-list! :-)

I hope you enjoy the photo and thanks for dropping by.

3d Base at Field of Dreams Movie Site

We just got back from our annual family trip to Iowa and Michigan.  It's a trip we look forward to every year and as usual, we had a great visit with everyone!  We even got to see family we haven't seen in many years!  It was awesome!

Part of the trip took us to Dyersville, IA, home of the movie set for "Field Of Dreams", a great baseball movie from the late 1980s, starring Kevin Costner.  This shot is looking at the farmhouse and barns from 3d base.  The cornfields are just behind in the outfield.

I hope you enjoy the photo and thanks for dropping by.

Independence State Hospital

If you are one who watches the news and peruses social media on the interwebs, then you are probably like me and think that everyone in the universe could stand to spend a little time at this place to get their head straight..  I mean, the world has gone nuts!  I'm starting to think I need to take a big break from social media and I have cut back quite a bit already!

Oh, I should mention, this is another shot I took of the The Independence State Hospital in Independence, IA about 4 years ago or so.  From Wikipedia:

The Independence State Hospital was built in 1873 as the second asylum in the state of Iowa. It is located in Independence, Iowa. The original plan for patients was to relieve crowding from the hospital at Mount Pleasant and to hold alcoholics, geriactrics, drug addicts, mentally ill, and the criminally insane. It was built under the Kirkbride Plan. The hospital's many names include: The Independence Lunatic Asylum, The Independence State Asylum, The Independence Asylum for the Insane, The Iowa State Hospital for the Insane, and The Independence Mental Health Institute. There is also a labyrinth of underground tunnels which connect every building. Like most asylums of its time, it has had a gruesome and dark history. Remnants of this are the graveyard, hydrotherapy tubs, and lobotomy equipment. 

The hospital is still in operation. According to the state of Iowa, The Independence Mental Health Institute (IMHI) provides inpatient psychiatric treatment for adults, adolescents, and children who are in need of acute psychiatric service.

So apparently they still provide some mental health treatment. Like I said, the world could probably use a session or two...
