It's hard to choose what photos to enter into the fair. I have a very crumby camera that pixelates my pictures when I blow them up. Some of my best pictures looked terrible 8 x 10 size. This picture was a last minute choice because at $4 each I did not want to keep printing them just to be disappointed.
Of my 7 photos I entered, I got this blue ribbon! Last year I just got a 4th place...so I'm mov'in on up in the world. I love going to the fair. It brings back so many memories of the farm days in my youth. I guess it is forever engrained.
These guys decided to join the 160th anniversary of the Ashland County Fair. Someone has a lot of imagination with some bales of straw.
This year I had two students with animals at the fair. That was a first for me. My students are not typically in 4-H with the entire building being walking distance from the building. This duck is a bit camera shy. My other student is in the picture I took of her and her pig. (so I decided not to post it)
