I got some good news tonight. Two images I submitted were California State Fair winners in the (amateur) photography competition. They will be on display this year at the California State Fair
"McGlutton" took second place (State Fair Ribbon) in the People/Self-Portraits class.
"Lemon Drop" took Best of Division for the Action category (Objects/People) ($50 and State Fair Rosette). I also get a free ticket to the fair (one of our all-time favorite annual dates).
Meanwhile, I am excitedly gearing up to attend the GALA Festival in Denver in a few weeks as photographer for the Sacramento Women's Chorus. It should be an amazing event!
