My 2015 Fair Entries

Following are my entries in the 2015 Ozark Empire Fair
Springfield, MO, July 30-August 8, 2015.


Color manipulation–I took the photo of me holding the photo frame and then cut the color from the background.
First Place and Champion. I’m not sure what the Champion was over, perhaps of the computer manipulated photos? It wasn’t over all the photos, just some.

My Photo Awards at the Fair this Year

When Jessica looked up my photos at the fair, it was a little confusing because some which we later learned did receive an award, didn’t have a ribbon on them during the fair! I had to wait until they posted the results to see that I had received these five awards.

One Award



Jessica and Delilah tried to find all my photos when they went to the fair today to see if any won. They couldn’t find two of the entries, but, of the ones they could find, this was the only one which placed (4th place).
