Today was a perfect laundry day. Cold, but perfectly windy for drying clothing outdoors.
Clothespins are of course essential when hanging the washing outside. They also make for a fun photo experiment. I love taking simple everyday things and making them into art.
Today was also my local camera club meeting. You may remember from this post that I used to be a little skeptical of my camera club. Now that I'm in my third season with the club, I've grown to appreciate it, and I've definitely learned a lot.
Plus I'm a little competitive. I did well the first year in Category B, and earned enough points to work my way up to Category A. Last year I also did well (although some of the best photographers were nowhere to be found that year!) So far this year, I scored highly in the first competition of the season with several photos -- Knit Lit is still one of my favorites.
I didn't want to miss out on entering the competition while we were in South Africa, so I left my photos with another member to enter for me.
I kind of forgot about the whole thing until tonight, when I got my photos back. I've already shown you this one that tied for second place in the color category.
Tonight I discovered that the black and white one above, 'Pinned' tied for second place in the black and white category.
Our next competition is looming -- I can enter one color, one black and white, and one with the theme of 'mostly yellow'. I have some ideas brewing in my mind... sunflowers may be involved. Regardless of whether I win, I'll be sure to share the results with you.
