Second Place in 8x10 Animal Photography Division
Encouraged by my friend Ginny and others, I entered photographs in the 2007 State Fair of Virginia. Thank you all for the push. Much much fun, although (as usual) I waited until just before the deadlines to get my entries in and then also to get my pictures printed/matted/delivered. Ah --- I do love the last minute and so much of my life gets done in it. Feeling very motivated to be more organized next year.
In a any case, all entered photographs get displayed at the fair --- so it was fun to go and see them mounted on the walls. Also inspiring to see all of the other amazing pictures. There are some talented photoraphers around these parts. I did have some of the cutest subjects anywhere (CGB, JCB, KGB, and my dogs) so my job was pretty easy. Thank you all for being willing to share your smiles with my camera. Proud to say that three of my photographs earned second place ribbons, which was very cool. Fond memories of Poly Pet & Hobby Shows past came rushing back to me when I saw the little vertical ribbons hanging there. I have included pix of the award winners above and also a link to my Kodak Gallery below in case anyone wants to see all of my entries. Enjoy.
