Sorry guys…I’ve not been around much lately. I’ve missed you all so darn much and have to tell ya what I’ve been up to.So ya know I was asking for some help a few weeks back with choosing a photo to take to the fair…sure you remember…anyhow, I won a ribbon on each of the 3 photos I took in and the old man won for his 2. Ya cool beans! We took home some serious prize money…a total of – wait for it – ya $9.00. I though about quitting my job, but the old man talked me in to staying a little longer, ya know, if ya just sever ties like that people will know I’m loaded.So…I noticed a photo contest that was looking for photography to display in a juried show this month. I figured since I already had the photos ready to go, why not give it a try…low and behold I was astonished to receive a call a few days after the close of the contest to let me know that my photographs had been accepted in to the show and they wanted me to bring more of my stuff down…I was tickled pink! So this last Friday night I went with my Aunt to my first Art show reception…where my photos were on display. In a real gallery and everything…not just on my mommy’s fridge door!
I didn’t win anything at this show, but my 4 photos are on display and for sale at the show threw the month of September. I didn’t feel a bit ashamed of not winning anything…the gentleman that took home the $300 best of show for the juried work has a professional shop in the downtown area and has been doing it for over 30 years.
So I know your itching to see what I took right??? Well here it is.
