Sometimes it's difficult to get a great shot. Sometimes you just get lucky.

Case in point, see above. This was taken at the North Georgia State Fair this past September. Luckily I got there early enough this year to shoot some "magic hour" shots. This one is probably my favorite. The light coming from behind the rides just amazes me. Another favorite quality is the expressions on the people's faces. Here we have wonder and amazement, excitement and anticipation. The fair is always a fantastic environment to shoot in, and rarely have I ever walked away with out at least ten great shots.
I am also so very thankful that I have the opportunity every year to submit my photos to the contest run by the Parks and Rec department. This contest has given me a boost in confidence, and re-affirmed the fact that yes, this can be my career.

Thank you to CCPRCAD and Mark for everything you have done for me, and thank you North Georgia State Fair, for being so awesome.
