I picked up my fair entries and ribbons today! I entered 11 photos in various categories with eight earning ribbons. I never actually expected to win any ribbons; I just wanted to enter for fun. Imagine my surprise when I walk away with two firsts, three seconds and three thirds plus almost $60 in premiums. Amazing! I feel so blessed and am absolutely honored to have won anything. I wish I had a photo of the Best in Show winner because her photo was awesome. It was a black and white of a little girl and a dog having a “conversation” in front of a window. Simple concept but amazing execution. She definitely deserved to win. Now that l’ve successfully entered the local fair, I think I might enter the state fair this fall. The competition is stiffer and the categories are a little differently , but I think it’ll be a fun experience.
