LOVE .....all around

I am still finding treasures among my Bear Lake photos. This is me with 8 of my 14 grandchildren. I LOVE them all so much! I hope that next year will be the year when we are ALL together!

Somewhere in Colorado

On our way home from Bear Lake last Monday, we broke down when the truck vapor locked.  It was hot and still....After drinking all the water and wetting down my clothing, I decided to make use of the time and the scene, so I took a few pictures.   It looks just like Utah.    Luckily, the truck started after sitting for an hour. Becky turned around and came for me.   Ralph followed minutes later.

Bear Lake

              I can't quite get over the beauty of Bear Lake.

Cattails at the lake

I love re-lliving all of the fun and the beauty of a special place in photographs. I still have images of Bear Lake in my heart. Take this one for instance. We made the trek to this place two nights in a row while we tried to get some model rockets to fire. They never did....but we laughed, and made a happy memory...then we went for raspberry shakes!

State Fair Entries


It is all decided now.  I took them in for printing and mounting today.    The trees at sunset will go in Landscape,  Rory in Children's Portraiture, and the children with their boats at the stream,  in Group portraiture.   Black and White is a different category, and I can put two photos in there, so I have chosen,  the trees in the fog,  and Cameron at the reflection pool.   I decided to go with Advanced Amatuer.   I do not expect to place with anything this year.  I think my photos are very good, for me, but I also see my weaknesses,  and in years past,  these two category's  have looked very professional.  I am not there yet, with my photography, or my editing.   Moving up WILL help me to keep challenged and improve.

Fair 2014

I keep changing my mind about what category to enter, and which pictures to enter.   At this rate,  I will not even know until I see them there!   For today, at least, these are my three.    
Landscape,  Child Portraiture, and Hand of Man.

These are in a parking lot in Draper.   I don't know if they are a decoration, or if they are meant to have bikes chained to them while people shop.   At any rate,  I like them, and their shadows.
