And the Winner is……

I won 4 ribbons at the county fair.  My Chicago black and white photos took 1st, 2nd and honorable mention.  My color photo of the Grand Canyon took 3rd and the portrait of my grandson didn’t place.  (I found out I had it in the wrong category.  I had entered it in scenes with people and it should have been in portraits.  LOL  who knew?)

This was first

This won second place

And honorable mention

It was fun entering and going to the fair and seeing the fruits of my labor.  My grandson Jake’s  photo of the double rainbow out at Fernow cabin took an honorable mention.

We all went to breakfast on Saturday to celebrate  grandson Conner’s 7th birthday and out to the fair and the carnival.  The kids just love the rides.   Saturday night Kurt and I went to Williams to  a birthday social  for our friend Karen.  It was at the McElwain’s home and we spent the evening grilling and socializing on the patio.  The weather was perfect.

Make a nice day!

Fair Photos

Yesterday I took out my photographs for the fair.  It was receiving day.  This day can be quite a zoo, check in, get your id tags, find the area for each photo, attach the tag and then hang it up….piece of cake..right?  Well, trying do that with 50 or so other people in a small venue all trying to do the same thing…and did I mention I had my two youngest grandsons with me…ages 6 and 4.  Thank goodness grandpa went along.  Here are the 5 photos I entered.  The three black and whites are of Chicago buildings, one color is of the Grand Canyon north rim and the other color is of my 6 year old grandson at the cabin.

I will let you know how mine did after the judging next weekend.  Make a nice day!
