The County Fair

The County Fair is still a big deal in small, rural comm- unities throughout the Southeast. In our county, we celebrate the county fair during the first and second weeks of October. Just for fun, I waited until AFTER the sun set to take a few pictures this year. [The child shown is my youngest daughter.]

For the record, I struggle with shooting photos that require a flash. Somehow, the lighting is always too sharp and red eye (even though turned on in the camera) seems to occur constantly. Oh well... learning is a process.

God is good...

This photo- graph begged for something inspir- ational to be included with it. The first thing that came to my mind was "God is good". Even now, recalling that moment invokes a lump in my throat... and a tear in my eye. It was fitting that the childhood prayer offered before meals became the "inspirational" text included with the photo. Enjoy!
