Jack in the Box <3

By | Uncategorized | One Comment

On our recent weekend getaway to Cincinnati we realized we’d only be 14 miles away from Jack in the Box. Kentucky doesn’t have a any, more importantly “LOUISVILLE DOES NOT HAVE A JACK IN THE BOX”. I went as far as liking a Facebook page to Bring Jack in the Box to Louisville a long while back. You see there is no end to the chicken joints.. I won’t even justify them by naming any. We desperately need variety!

Since this trip to Jack in the Box was so monumental.. I decided to document our experience and snap a few shots as well.

We met a very spirited young lady who assisted us with our meal named JeRee. She agreed to take a picture and in true Jack in the Box fashion she “rocked it”. The customer service was on point, everyone we met was really sweet. I ordered a #3 of course, (for those not acquainted with the Jack’s menu a #3 is a Sourdough Jack) it was delish! A Sourdough Jack is a Beef patty topped with bacon, tomato, Swiss-style cheese, Mayo-Onion sauce, and ketchup on toasty sourdough bread. MMM.. heaven.

A two hour drive to the nearest Jack in the Box for us Louisville natives is hard core dedication. If only Jack would hear our cry and build in Louisville.

Here are a few snapshots, meet JeRee and peek at their menu! @jackbox #jackinthebox #louisvilleneedsjack #JeReerocks

Newport Aquarium Photography

What a Croc!

I recently visited Newport, Kentucky on the Ohio River a bridge distance from Cincinnati. I’ve been to Cincinnati only a handful of times yet this was my first time at the Newport Aquarium.

The last Aquarium I had visited was in Virginia Beach and it pales in comparison. My first impression of the Newport Aquarium was in part due to the little plaza it is located in. I really wish Louisville had something like this. It was beautiful. Clean and engaging plus it had a 5GUYS right in the plaza!

The cost for the general admission was 23 dollars for adults. I took this opportunity to test out my new camera (Nikon d3300) and who wouldn’t want some Newport Aquarium Photography to show off on a portfolio website!

Here are a few of the best images I captured, If you are interested in seeing more Newport Aquarium Photography check out the entire album on facebook. Of the many shots I took, my favorite subject was this wee crocodile. After many people walked by he seemed frozen in place until I walked up with my camera. He fixated on my every move and followed me around with a full 90 degree turn of his head. Here are the best in his series. Lastly it seemed to be a theme with photogenic aquatic life. This piranha was swimming straight for me several times, my camera couldn’t focus fast enough but for one time. Enjoy!

Game of Thrones Religion Infographic

Game of Thrones: Religion No Spoilers.

Game of Thrones the Faiths

If you’ve been living under a rock, and are unaware of the phenom that is Game of Thrones (GoT)… I advise you.. GOOGLE my friends, use the eugooglizer! Apart from being an excellent show that is nearing the end of its 5th season on HBO, it is probably the best book series I’ve read. If you love politics, twisty plots, assassins, severed heads, swordplay, vivid worlds, wait.. I could go on for days describing the books to you, or you could start reading them. I warn you, the wait for the next book will likely be a long grueling process. Have no fear you can just marathon the show over and over again until George R.R. Martin finishes his next masterpiece.

I am super inspired when it comes to this show, I really would love free time to do some detailed illustrations of any aspects of the GoT world. Come to think of it, I have one such project I’ve never finished. I started this infographic on the Faiths of the series. I find the concept of religion in the books to be a fascinating and integral part of why the characters believe and act as they do. This inspired me to take a closer look at the Faiths and to do that I thought an infographic would be the best approach considering the enormity of the information. It features most of the known religions, at least the ones discussed in the show. As I mentioned it is not finished, it may never be finished. Sometimes passion and interest takes a back seat to responsibility; however, unfinished should never be an excuse not to share an idea.

A good resource for more information about the Faiths in George R.R Martin’s universe can be found here. Matt Fowler recently wrote an article “The Relgions of Game of Thrones” on ign.com that explores who believes what in the HBO series. You can find that article here. Great article! #gameofthronereligion #gameofthrones #gotseason5
