Most of y’all know that Olyn and I compete in photographic print competitions both locally and at the state level.  This year, I decided to be brave and submit a case of four prints to the national competition.  This case was shipped off back in the spring and I literally forgot about it.  We have had such a crazy busy summer here at the studio I didn’t think about it until today.  I has honestly assumed that since it was my first time entering I would not have any merits.  I was shocked this morning when I found the results online and learned one of my prints merited!  Woo!  🙂  So, here it is… my first NATIONAL merit image!
