SS #393: Pagan Circle Ritual

I made a Halloween-esque multiple exposure set on a trip to Mushroom Rock State Park in Kansas.  As the link shows, it’s been a photo op for many decades, but I think I’m the first for this kind!  It was windy, so I had to set my tripod down further from the rock than I wanted to, and on the ground, but it still turned out okay.

SS #391: I Am…Hidden

“Underneath these clothes, I’m naked.” – somebody

In red state

Religion is conserved

Better is deserved

Casting shadow

Light of day

Hidden urge

Desires purged

Leaning blue

To thine own self be true!

Sinful Sunday Week 390

Toadstool Geological Park is known for its fossil beds and grey mushroom-like formations erosion-carved from sandstone and volcanic ash.  But if you search the barren, monotone strata diligently enough, you may spot the bad-boy of the badlands, the Purple Mushroom Tip, it’s smooth biology peeking out from the course, weathered geology!

Feeling Salty

Feeling salty and grey so this trip to the Great Salt Plains National Wildlife Refuge matched my mood.  I wrote a post for Wicked Wednesday about my last chance of the year to complete an Ironman triathlon.  Well I didn’t.

I was most concerned about the swim.  I had 2 1/2 hours to complete it.  I did it in 2 hours and 26 minutes.  After that, I had until 6 pm to complete the 112 mile bike ride.  I got pulled off the course with half an hour until the deadline due to a technicality that the police intersection presence in town was set to stop at 6:00 and there was “uncertainty” of them being in place for my ride through town in the first 7 of 11 miles remaining (the final 5k or so was in the park).

I’ve failed to finish ultramarathons my fair share of times and wasn’t fine with it, of course, but I accepted it as it was on me and my training or beyond human control due to injury, etc.  But this time was different.  My pace was there, albeit barely.  The problem is that I registered for the beginner wave of the swim, which was completely reasonable, my being a beginner after all!  But once there, I found out the beginner’s wave was the final wave, not the first as I and everybody I’ve talked to agreed would be the logical assumption.  That meant I started 20-25 minutes after the first wave, which was the wave I’d been in if I hadn’t selected beginner.  That meant 20-25 minutes less time to finish the bike!  I fail to see how this benefits a beginner!

Long story short, being in the beginner wave is supposed to set up new triathletes in a better position, but it mathematically, truthfully set me up for failure.  I feel cheated and I think I have a sound argument that I was cheated.  This was the most disappointing and infuriating race experience of my life by a wide margin.  Now it’s a full year before another shot at completing an Ironman.  This cast a pall over everything else I’ve accomplished this year and will eat away like acid in my stomach all off season.  I still feel a little sick.

Sinful Sunday 389

This is the only multiple exposure set I did in the Black Hills.  I tried for a nudist community look.  It was at Gordon Stockade, which was risky.  It is a small, totally enclosed place with only one entrance and exit which is both good and bad.  It was also at the end of a 100 meter or so walkway from the parking lot.  The sun was going down behind the hills and I was the only one there, and figured from somebody driving up and walking in, I’d have at minimum a 30 second window.  I put a pair of shorts in each of the cabins, but still risky.  That’s why you see some of myselves running!  It probably only took 20 seconds, but seemed a lot longer at the time!

Due to the camera set-up and myself checking if the coast was clear, this part has the look of a voyeur getting caught peeping.

Sinful Sunday Week 388

This week I’m sharing some photos I took at a quirky little one-horse town in South Dakota from my tri trip.  It’s an evolving bike sculpture in the town of Pringle, which is (in)famous also for a fundamental polygamous branch of Mormons.  I didn’t know that at the time, so I guess I wasn’t the only one being a sexual deviant!  The sculpture appealed to my like of cyberpunk dystopian landscapes.  And you know Pringles, once you drop (pants), you can’t stop!  So I took three pics that turned out much better than I thought they would!

My face behind the spokes and axle give my head a cyborg-ish look I think.

I’m also submitting this for the Pieces of Jade Scavenger Hunt for public art!

A “Male” Box! – PoJ Scavenger Hunt

I was just scouting a route from Custer to Devil’s Tower on Google Maps and spotted a road named Dick Drive in Hill View Heights, Wyoming, a “census-designated place,” population 170.  Well my dick led me to drive that route because that was just too perfect for my naughty exhibitionist drive not to check out!  Then it seemed not so perfect as the place is so small most of the gravel streets don’t even have road signs.  There was, however, a row a mail boxes along an old paved highway with their addresses stickered on for residences along Dick Drive.  Great success!  A funny named road and a scavenger hunt location for mail boxes!  Or in this case, as I saw to it, a male box!  Check!

Cornography

It’s almost harvest time here in the breadbasket region of the USA bringing with it Husker Harvest Days and The Harvest of Harmony parade.  I’m trying my hand at a poem about the agriculture area for the lifestyle prompt for Wicked Wednesday, and also included the photo for the Pieces of Jade Scavenger Hunt crops category which was the inspiration for the photo and poem.  Hope you enjoy!

Cornography

Squeeze test – Grasp and squeeze the cornstalk

If the stalk is soft and spongy, the Harvest will not come

If ripe, it will be firm and solid, healthy and strong

Tassels blush dark, turning color

Cobs start to swell

Bursting proudly out of concealing husks

Virile, exposed, displayed!

Ripe with potent seed – kernels full with milky promise

Waiting eagerly for hands of harvesting maidens

To take swollen cobs within

And spill their milky seed into fertile soil

Let the sweet Harvest begin!

Giant Cross – PoJ Scavenger Hunt

A happy Labor Day to you American bloggers and viewers!  This day off work gave me a chance to go on a fairly good 14 mile run out in the countryside.

I live in the Bible Belt of the USA so this one wasn’t going to be difficult to cross of the Pieces of Jade Scavenger Hunt list.  Just from running around the countryside, I know of several locations where people have set up giant crosses in pastures.  Most of them are by highways with too much traffic to take a picture with, and most people would not be amused by this.

I don’t think there is anything wrong or dirty with the human body, but the Puritanical Christian tradition of these parts would strongly disagree, I’m sure.  That’s all I’m going to get into about that whole thing.  But I do know of one cross that is over a mile away from any highway, along the minimum maintenance farming and ranching paths, so I ran out there and took a quick picture.  I earnestly tried to do what I think is a respectful photo given the subject matter.  I hope you agree.
