Fair Life – August 10th: Open Class Photography

Fair Life, is a featured series I’m writing on the 2012 Iowa State Fair. I’m going to try to post something different each day I’m at the fair that features some behind-the-scenes looks at different aspects of the state fair along with factual information.

So the results are in…. All 3 of my photos were exhibited… of those 3, I had 1 that got an honorable mention (which receives an awesome certificate and a ribbon!), not first place, but still, pretty darn good! Here are the statistics of open class this year followed by my photos!
