Tulsa State Fair Entries Photography

Saturday morning I am headed to Tulsa to enter two of my photos in the Tulsa State Fair. I take ninety nine percent of my photos for my own pleasure and share them with friends and family, including my blogging/facebook friends. I do like to ocassionally see how my images compare to others who consider photography a relatively serious hobby. Based on my knowledge and equipment, I would consider myself to be a the low end of relatively serious. Still, when I go through my photos, I find a few that I think are interesting enough to enter into competition. Last year I entered four photos into the competition and won three ribbons (click here to view them), two seconds and a third place. The fair runs from Thursday, September 25 through Sunday October 5. As of now, I am not planning on attending the fair, which means it will be Monday October 6, when I return to Tulsa to pick up my photos, before I know the results of my entries. The fair does not send you the results of the competition. If you don't go to the fair or show up to retrieve your entries, you will never know if you won anything. Here are the two images I will be entering this year.

Ozark Spring
If you read this blog on a regular basis, you've probably seen this image, in part or in whole.  I use a portion of it as my blog header for a few weeks.
Gold Glove
I know that I have also posted this image on the blog.  It was probably for a Wordless Wednesday.  Well, these are what my ribbon hopes are hanging on this year.  Wish me luck.


  1. I wish you tons of good luck. Your photography is fantastic. These are two great shots too.

    Have a fabulous weekend. ☺

  2. I'll be going to the fair twice. Once to check everything out and take pics of the critters and such and second for the Sugar Art Show. I always swing by the photo area. I'll keep an eye out for your photos.
    I'd give them each a blue ribbon if I were the judge.

  3. Ribbons are in the bag... :)
