Bragging Rights

My son Rob, whom some of you know is a pretty good photographer, entered two photos just for the heck of it, in the Sussex County Farm and Horse Show/NJ State Fair, going on this week. He entered this photo in the Still Life category….

and came up with a blue ribbon! He also entered this barn photo in the “Country Life” category, and received a third place ribbon there.

But the Fair folks called him before opening day last Friday, and told him he’d taken the top prize – the best photo depicting Sussex County, which also awarded him the only cash prize and a nice green rosette.

I should add that I took these photos at the show, and the blueberries were hanging pretty high for someone as short as I am, so I couldn’t get a very good angle.

Needless to say, I was very proud of him. You can see more of his photos in his gallery.
