PLAYING CATCH UP

While I have been posting everyday on Facebook, I have been unable to do so on my blog so today is "catch-up" day for May 30, 31, June 1 and today. I have been posting from Hastings Park Race Track and here are some of the pictures from there. Four days worth or 8 photos.

SALON ENTRIES

These are the two photos of mine that were chosen to be displayed at the Salon. I guess I should be happy that two of mine made it out of the 7300 that were entered. There were 6 photographers from Canada who entered 55 photos. Three photographers, myself included, had 6 photos accepted for the Salon so getting two accepted is not bad. I am looking forward to getting a copy of the catalogue that shows all the entries. It is a work of art in itself.

MY WHOOPING COUGH BRONCHITIS IS DOING ME IN

While I have been posting every day to my Facebook page, my blog has suffered because of my illness. Today I will post what I have been posting on Facebook the last few days.
May 21
Attended Cirque du Soleil and really enjoyed it. Posted some promo photos of Cirque since one was not allowed to photograph the show.
May 22, May 23 & May 24. I posted my entries to an international Photo Salon. These were the six that were not selected for the Salon exhibition. I did have two selected which was not bad considering there were over 7300 entries from over 900 photographers from 48 countries. The following 6 out of 8 photographs I submitted were not selected.

Buddhist Nun, Myanmar
Seamstress, Tanlyn, Myanmar
Spice sellers, Thinly, Myanmar
Cambodian Dancer, Siem Reap, Cambodia
Tourist Guide, Yangon,Myanmar
Tourist, Wadi Rum, Jordan

HORRIBLE BRONCHITIS IS BEATING ME UP.

Can barely move around the house today as the cough is killing me. However, I am glad I took Birgitta's advice and saved some spare pictures for days like this.
