I sold a photo!

I went to the fair grounds to pick up my photos at the end of the fair and lo and behold one of my photos had sold! This is so exciting. Here it is:

This is the salmon that my hubby caught off the Sitka, Alaska coast. We were there visiting friends and we were on their boat. I priced it at $75.00 as I knew hubby would want to keep it and well the rest is history as they say. (BTW who is "they" ? Am thinking of doing a blog on the famous "they" or infamous as the case may be...but I digress).

I had lots of fun entering in the fair. My eldest grandson also entered in the youth division. He won a second for his black and white and a thrid for his color photo. I will post them here now. I think they are great.

He was excited to get the ribbons and see his work displayed. This will help him keep his interest up in photography. I gave him my digital point and shoot with I got my Nikon D40, as he has always liked to take pictures and seems to have a great eye. He is 10 years old ( 9 when the pics were taken).

I will leave you now with this thought:

Like fingerprints, everyone's tongue print is different.

Have a good one.
