Day at the Track

Get buckled up and ready. The racers get their seat belts buckled and tight and get ready for the race to begin
And so the race begins. The first racer makes it out of the pit to begin the first warm up lap and begin the race.
Moving on up. The racer looks at his times and realizes that he is getting faster after every race.

Time Spent Making the Worst Beverage in the World Isn’t Wasted If You Spend It With Your Mom

A bag of carrots is judged by its freshness. If it passes the test it will receive a place in the shopping cart seen in the bottom right.
The chosen bag of carrots accompanies a bag of clementines to the self-scan checkout. Few registers were open at the late hour the purchase was made.
A housecat, known as Rat Baby, cautiously investigates the peeling process. The peels are saved for composting.
The finished product awaits tasting beside scraps and pieces reserved for snacking. Repeated offers for a taste were declined, repeatedly.

 

Photo Story

Several breakfast orders are being put up for the cook to make. Meet Caleb Lamb, a line cook at GeoMeals Cafe inside of Genesis Health CLubs.
Caleb scrambles the eggs for a yummy breakfast scramble. He cooked this on GeoMeals very large grill top.
Next, Caleb begins frying eggs, and toasting the wheat bread. He has cooked this breakfast ever morning for a lady named Sierra for the past two years.
Caleb is doing the several orders hung up, all at once. He has been known for being a quick and speedy cook!
Some may say there is not much skill to being a line cook, but Caleb puts forth great effort and technique into cooking the customers breakfast. Caleb scrambled the eggs, toasted the bread, and cooked off the proteins effortlessly.

Dunking the Mayor

The Wichita Chamber of Commerce sets up a dunk tank booth with Mayor Longwell at the Open Streets ICT on Douglas Avenue this past weekend. People of all ages lined up to attempt to soak the mayor.
The police mascot, Sargent Justice, wants in on the action. With unsteady aim, he attempted many times to soak our city’s leader.
The eagle tries several times, ignoring the mayors jests. “You throw worse than Chief Ramsay!” Remarked Longwell.
Frustrated with not hitting the mark, Sargent Justice runs up to the target and dunks Mayor Longwell. The crowd cheered at the display of unsportsmanlike conduct.

Trying out The Monarch with friends

The Monarch patio sits mostly empty. It was a Monday night, so it was to be expected.
The indoor dining room has a few small groups. It looks full, but this was everyone else in the restaurant.
Evan talks about his day at work. There’s trouble a-brewin’ with a coworker.
Jake waits patiently to eat his turkey and cream cheese sandwich. I told everyone they had to wait a minute to eat so I could get pictures with their untouched food in the background.
Evan digs in to his potato salad. He called it the best potato salad he’d ever had.
