Award Winning Photographer
Photo-A-Day #1320

Yesterday I went to pick up my photos at the Bellingham Library. I hadn’t been there since I dropped off the photos. I just never got a chance to go to the library for the opening. When I walked in the woman there asks me if I was picking up photos, I was. Then she said okay they are on the wall just take them down and bring them here. I walked over and saw one of mine with a red ribbon next to it, 2nd Place. That was the photo from Photo-A-Day #1000 plus all the photos from my 1st 500 Photo(s)-A-Day in the background. Then I found my photo of the Oregon Farm and that too had a 2nd place ribbon with it. I said, “Huh, wow that is pretty cool.” The woman there heard me and asked if I had been there before to see all the paintings. I was embarrassed to say I hadn’t. I certainly should have been to the opening.

It was a small show but there were a bunch of people who entered. It gave me a little confidence to actually go out and try some other things. I’ll be entering more of these in the future.

    Thanks very much Chica, I appreciate that very much especially since I really respect your photography and your eye. I hope you use that Eye to help me pick 12 good photos for my calendar this year.

    Dude, just got back from picking my faves, and I didn’t even make it through the set before I went way over to 18 favs! LOL

    I’d love to see one on the photo challenge, that E word one (can’t remember) Of course that’s the type of photography I enjoy the most.

    Perhaps you can make one for yourself, of Eva, since you have so many to choose from. 🙂

    I just got a Flickr update, you certainly went all out on the favorites, very cool. Thanks so much, you really liked the Entropy ones.

  5. Chica says:

    Well I thought when I went into it, that I wanted to pick stuff I’d like to look at for a full month, and those were pretty much it, I could have went even more critical and more thorough through your set, but time is limited, and I had to do it when I have this little time at night lol. I’m sure whatever you create will be ace, I’ll save some bucks to purchase it. 🙂

    Wow, that is really neat! Congratulations.

    I missed a competition I wanted to enter, but now that I am really playing around with manual and getting out there, I may try to find even more.

    I did a calendar last Christmas and people really liked it. Good luck on your decision!
