Photography at the local flower show

Last Saturday was extremely busy. It was the local flower show and the church choir had been asked to sing at a wedding. Fairly early in the morning I took thirteen photos to the flower show and entered them in the appropriate classes. There were six to choose from:

  1. Capturing a season in nature
  2. A garden of flowers
  3. Mirror image
  4. Village landmark
  5. My favourite tree
  6. Insect.

Then I went to choir practice and the wedding service, which was lovely. I knew the bride when she was a child. After lunch I went back to the flower show, which is perhaps the social highlight of the summer here. I was delighted to have won two first prizes and a third prize. These are the original photos, which won. The portrait view won the 3rd prize. For the 4″ x 6″ prints I had to crop them slightly. (The classes in which I was successful were numbers 2-4 above.)
