Meditation Chapel



Meditation Chapel in Memory Grove Park. This is a WWII memorial.



The inscription over the door reads:




ERECTED TO THE MEMORY OF

LT. ROSS BEASON JR.

AND THOSE OTHER SONS OF UTAH WHO

WITH HIM TROD WARS LAST MILE



There is a plaque on the side of the stairs that reads:



THIS MEDITATION CHAPEL AND AFFURTENANCES IS A GIFT TO THE CITY OF SALT LAKE AND THE PEOPLE OF UTAH BY THE PARENTS OF LT. ROSS BEASON JR. WHO WAS BORN IN SALT LAKE CITY NOVEMBER 15, 1921 AND WHO DIED APRIL 15, 1944 WHEN HIS FIGHTER PLANE CRASHED INTO THE TYRRHENIAN SEA OFF THE ITALIAN COAST.



It is a beautiful little chapel. Around the chapel are markers for all the others who died in WWII. The marble of the chapel is an amazing color that I tried to capture in the picture with a bit of HDR work in photomatix.

Bajio, Cafe Rio, or Costa Vida?

It is time for the showdown.  Which one is best: Bajio, Cafe Rio, or Costa Vida?  Or is it (as was my opinion) that they are all exactly the same?

I decided to do a taste test.  Six people participated.  Three were salad testers and three were burrito testers.  None of the people who participated have any food judging experience although a couple of them have competed in cooking contests and have a couple of first place finishes to their name.   Each couple went to a different restaurant and picked up a Sweet Pork Salad and an Steak Burrito to go.  We ordered each salad with black beans and their creamy green dressing (whatever they happened to call it).  The steak burritos were ordered enchilada style with black beans. Then we all met at a central location and judged each dish on the following:


Value Score = Weight (oz)/Cost($)
Overall Appeal (visual appeal, aroma, garnish)
Recipe (Cooking, ingredient combination, too moist or dry)
Taste (Flavor combination, Seasoning, Texture)

Sea Arch at Cabo

We just returned from a cruise to the Mexican Riviera.  Great Trip!  I didn't take my good camera, so these pictures were all taken with a Canon A1100IS, then processed in Aperture.

This is the sea arch at the end of the Baja peninsula near Cabo San Lucas

Old Barn

I don't want to be known as the guy who takes pictures of old barns, but I have to admit that I think old barns are cool.  This one is especially cool with a hole in the roof.

There is nothing special about this photo.  It is just a 3 shot photomatix HDR bracketed at +/- 2 stops at F8.  I messed with the saturation, contrast and sharpness a bit.
