This past weekend I had a booth at my very first art festival. I had about 18 photo prints in frames that I was selling, and I am thrilled to report that I sold 8 pieces. It was the most fun. It started off pretty rough, it was windy and freezing. About the third time all my work fell over off their easels, I was about to give up...but we persisted and by lunch time things really started to kick. It was thrilling to hear feedback from people who were not my family on my work. Sometimes just watching their faces could tell me what was working for them and what was not. I am not sure if anyone from the show will read this blog, but if you do I would like to say thank you for your support!
God Bless :)

Since I am the 'photographer' in my family, all things photo related come to me. My latest project is scanning all of my Grandmother's old photographs. I left her house this weekend with a plastic tub filled with photos. This one is just one of thousands, but I love it so I have dubbed it the perfect picture. The depth of field is perfect, and the subject (my Grandma) is what you focus on. Even though the color has faded, it stands out to me as a great photograph. These are the kind of photos that make me want to keep shooting.

Today (and last night) Alabama got blanketed with snow. Now, I totally get that in a lot of places snow is not a big deal, but in the South, it is a really big deal. This was one of the prettiest scenes I have ever seen and a picture can not even do it justice. This is a small 1800s church outside of Selma, AL. It is tucked off a main road. I was coming back from Miss. with my parents when we spotted it. My Dad said we needed to go back and try to take a picture of it and he was right. This looked like a scene out of a movie. What a wonderful day.
