Fair - Photography

Fair showing was today... and boy was it a long day! And guess what! Fair is over for me (besides pick up Sunday) for this year! Yay! :)

This year I only did three projects - Crocheting, Sewing, and Photography. I did really well in all three, I got all blues (Conference judging, not Danish) and had a couple surprises at the end of the day!

Here are the photos I brought for photography (crocheting and sewing coming in later posts) -
Entry for 'Extreme Close Up' - This was the first year he didn't tell me it needed to be more focused! :) It got 1st and a star which means it will be considered for additional ribbons (Merit Award, State Fair, and Best of Show), but it didn't get any thing else.
This is the first picture for the entry 'Plant life or Flowers'
And this is the other one
This was the first of two pictures for "Insect or Fish"
And this was the second of the two pictures
And along with a blue I got a Merit Award on my butterflies! I was really happy with this because this is the first big award I have gotten in photography. It's a lot hard to place for the big ribbons in photography because there are easily over 1000 entries, which is a whole lot more than Advanced Crocheting where I am one of two (this year one of three). :)
Stay tuned for sewing and crocheting!


  1. Beautiful pictures, Sarah! My fav one is still the bee! Nice job Honey!

  2. I was going to say 'beautiful pictures' - until I read your mom's comment :) So I'll say this instead:

    I love the photos! :) Great job. My favorite is the butterfly in the grass...I'm never in the right place at the right time to get butterflies.
