Prairie Winds Art Center Photo Competition and Show

A few weeks ago I entered Prairie Winds’ 12th annual photo competition.  Today they postponed the awards reception due to the weather, but I called and they told me the results.  Good news!  Inside Old Silage Truck won a merit award, which is 3rd place, and Peony Parts received an honorable mention.

The old truck picture was taken at my father’s ranch, south of Ainsworth Nebraska.  It’s had a long useful history.  It’s a hand-me-down from my Uncle Blair.  It’s primary purpose was hauling silage or livestock.  When I opened the door a semi feral cat named Yowler, bolted off the driver’s side seat and squeezed through a hole in the floor.  Judging from the amount of cat hair he left behind, the truck is a common resting place for him.

The peony picture was taken in my garage.  I arranged the parts on mat board and then played with the size of the crack under the garage door, until I got the light I wanted.
