I had no idea what to create for this weeks photo challenge. Three? Three what? Three trees? Three dogs? Three people? I was stumped.
But then three silly comments on the main post led to an idea. Frank's comment mentioned Joris Driepinter.
Joris Driepinter is a fictional character from Dutch milk commercials of the 1960 and 1970s. The character of Joris was created by Danish visual artist Ib Antoni Jensen and Dutch artist Dimitri Frenkel Frank. The character of Joris was inspired by American comic book characters like Superman and Batman. The original Joris Driepinter drew his strength from his daily consumption of three pints of milk. Milk? Beer? It's all the same.
So I thought, why not create photographs inspired by Joris? Three images of me, each one with me drinking a pint of a different American craft ale, all from New Jersey. Blend the layers in Photoshop and … three comments, three ales, and three images.
The three ales are:
- Pamplona Pale: an American Ale from Bolero Snort in Ridgefield Park, New Jersey.
- Kowabunga: a Kolsch from Bolero Snort in Ridgefield Park, New Jersey.
- My Name Is Citrus Maximus: an American session double hopped IPA with passion fruit and white grapefruit from River Horse Brewing in Ewing, New Jersey.
Hey, I had fun doing this. Three pints in three hours and I combined two of my favorite activities; photography and craft ale drinking. Prost!
Created by photographer Frank Jansen, the Tuesday Photo Challenge is a weekly theme-based challenge for photographers of all kinds to share both new and old photography.

Love this one! You definitely had some fun putting this together and I'm glad that you explained what you did, as I first took a double take and was wondering, if I saw triplets 🙂

Hi Frank, I think this was the most fun challenge yet.

Very clever, Khürt! Were you able to drink all three beers and still combine the three images? I'm impressed!

I drank the three beers over a three hour period. I don't think I could operate Photoshop reliably if I had drank them all quickly. 🙂
