Itty Bitty Photo Contest

Time again for the city photo contest!

This year's theme is "Itty Bitty Lehi City" in which amateur photographers are invited to submit close-ups of anything or anyone and taken within the city limits. With my personal finance class starting today and an audition on Saturday (and a bunch of other stuff in between), I hadn't planned on submitting anything this year. Lo and behold, I woke up yesterday and decided to do it.

Before you let last year's submissions and one of the photos below lead you to think me a cowgirl (Not that there's anything wrong with being a cowgirl; I'm just not one.), know that I live in a city that not long ago was a town of farms and rodeos, so that is the culture I've typically caught on camera.

My first entry is a close-up of a small bronze statue situated in front of the police department.

Lehi Courage

My second entry is of a little fellow I fell in love with one morning when I was jogging through the neighborhood (when I used to do such a thing).

Sunny Morning Walk

Both of these are taken with a point-and-shoot.

There. Another year done.

On to practice my lines...

I love the sun rays in the first one and that little snail makes me want to pick it up. (I don't think I really would but it looks so CUTE.) Great photos - good luck!

I have two photographer friends that are doing a blog where there's a theme for the week and they post pictures and critique each other. Let me know if you're interested. I'm loving it. There are only five of us right now. =o) Three are somewhate experienced, the other two of us are wannabe's.
