Set 4 of My
All Time Favorite Photographs
Bob Jensen at Trinity University
Normally in January I feature snow
pictures. This 2016 winter in New England is a record-warmth bummer. The
snow comes a few inches at a time and goes away with rains that follow. So instead of featuring snow pictures I begin
the year of 2016 Tidbits with some more of my favorite photographs. This will be Set 4 of my favorites.
Sets 1-3 featured in previous years are as follows:
Set 1 of My All Time Favorite Photographs
Set 2 of My All Time Favorite Photographs
Set 3 of My All Time Favorite Photographs
Last week I received a request from the Historical
Society of Swea City, Iowa.
Growing up I spent a lot of time in Swea City with my maternal grandparents.
The Director of the Historical Society, Lavonne Geerdes, requested the following photograph
of my Grandfather's 1910 champion Percheron Stallion named Hierogliphe.
The picture below is one of my all-time favorites that for years was on display in the home of my grandparents
Last week for the Swea City Historical Society I wrote a sequel to a story about my Grandmother Dourte.

On a day in October 2015 I took the following picture of the Ski Hearth Organic Farm
that is about three miles down the hill.
I think it was previously owned for a short while by champion skier Bode Miller.
On a warm day in October 2015 I came home as usual starting with a one-lane
bridge across from the organic farm.
