Waterford Fair, VA

So today I finally get to go to the Waterford Fair.  Last year work didn’t allow me to attend, plus weather wasn’t too fantastic either.  This year the weather better hold out, because I have been looking forward to this for a month or more.

One definite stop is the School House, to check out the photography exhibit.  I entered 3 photos in it this year (last year too) I though about taking a picture of them all together, in frames,  but didn’t get around to it.  Sooo I will post them digitally instead.

"A Short Ridge Evening"

"Bale Posted"

"Winter Contemplations"

Winter Contemplations

I love all 3 of these shots, and they framed up really well.  What’s also interesting is that they are all horizontal shots. I find that I tend to shoot a lot of vertical, of course that may be when I am shooting people.  Anyway just found it interesting.  Maybe you can make it to the Waterford Fair to check them out, photos are always better in person.  But if not,  hope you enjoy them here anyway.  If none of them sold, I plan to hang them in our place… if I can get over the whole “I don’t like putting holes in the wall” feeling. I have never hung a single photo of mine, it’s probably about darn time eh?

I hope your weekend is going well.

PS. I hate thinking up titles for my shots.. any better suggestions?

    Ah, go ahead and put nails in the wall…that’s what spackle is for:)

    I love the title, “Bale Posted” –very simple, just like the way the farmers do it. They come in from the field, set down their hind haunches, and say to their kin, “Bale posted.” Very nice.

    When it comes to titles, a good rule of thumb is “less is more.” Oftentimes, you can leave out certain articles such as “the,” “a,” “an,” etc. as they won’t be missed. For example, A Short Ridge Evening would not be compromised if you left out the “A,” as it helps the viewer to mentally zoom in and connect with the photo.

    Do you put titles on the backs of your cards? Sometimes that’s the selling point for me. What the artist “saw” in the photo, and then I buy the card and send it to someone else with a connected meaning. That makes it really special.
