State Fair Entry

After some thought I have decided to enter the photography contest at the North Carolina State Fair. I have never done anything like this before so we will see how it goes. It's only a $5 entry fee so there is not much at stake.

I am not a professional photographer by any means, nor will I ever be. But over the past year with some tips from my photographer pal Val I think my photography skills have improved. I carry my camera in my purse all the time and drive Matt nuts because he says I take pictures of the silliest things at the silliest times. So we will see how this turns out.

The entry is for North Carolina landscape. Val is getting the picture printed for me in an 8 x 10 (thanks Val!) and then I will mat it and frame it. And in the end I will have a great picture to hang in my "beach theme" room.

So drumroll please... here is the photo I am entering. It was taken at sunset at Oak Island.


The judging is in October and then the photo will be displayed during the fair until October 22. So all my NC friends make sure you look for it.

And on a side note, Chris is also entering a competition –– the lego building competition. The poor boy has been hard at work all week, even though the entry isn't due until October 5. I'm sure that will make some great blogging.
