One of my regrets is that my father is not alive and able to see some of my work as he has always been my inspiration for picking up the camera and seeing things through the lens.
These shots are for you dad. From all those times I listened to you mutter out f stops and shutter values.
I've gone further than I ever thought I could.
Tonight I am going to an awards banquet to get an Award for my nature photography. I actually submitted to our local Land and Conservation photo contest and two of my shots have won for the county.
From here the shots go to 'the Nationals' for Land and Conservation.
Here are the winning photos.
Agricultural ~ Sheep
Agricultural ~ Oats and Dew
If I have to say anything tonight....which I hope I don't... I will only say.
"I have my father to thank for his inspiration in photography."
Now I suppose I will have to dress like a normal person and I leave my skunk hat at home.
