I had all sorts of ideas for CCoH monthly critique theme of balance and symmetry for April. I was going to do a thumbprint. I talked to my best friend about asking her teenage twins if they’d let me photograph them which is totally outside my area. I had it in mind when I went with a friend to shoot at Biltmore. I took one of Tyler with his “broken leg” pose, a set up a marble shot, then I let the deadline go by without entering anything.
I didn’t want to go see what new naming rules the club made and change my Lightroom export profile settings. I didn’t really want the pictures of Tyler critiqued because I just couldn’t take the critiquer saying anything negative about my boy right now – no matter how constructive. Plus I just didn’t really want to share something so personal and close to my heart just yet even if I originally shot some for this theme.
Last year my cardinal made the cover of WNC Magazine. The thrill when my hubby carried in my issue with my image on the cover was wonderful. Thank you WNC Magazine for sending a few extra copies! There are two subscriptions of non-photography magazines I plan to keep. WNC Magazine and Our State. Now it didn’t win any of the cash prizes but I was pretty excited about it making their cover.

Congrats to Mark for his win on Bullington Gardens Dahlia contest!
Here are the two I entered, but I don’t know which one received the honorable mention yet.
I am trying to get a photo together for the Blue Ridge Humane Society “You can’t buy love, but you can rescue it” contest. This did not go as planned. My cats just didn’t share my vision regardless of how many treats they got. #hardtoherdcats
My cardinal photo made the cover of WNC magazine!
My Cardinal Rule made WNC Magazine’s cover!
I didn’t win the judged contest but sure enough my photo was right there on the cover and they sent me a few copies. It was such a happy surprise when hubby got the mail and called out that it was on the cover. It’s a nice magazine to check out too. I’d have to say I’m kind of partial to them. 🙂
