Last month, I entered my very first photo contest, which is being held at the Washington DC Temple Visitor's Center of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon) in Kensington, Maryland. If you live in the D.C. area and you want to see some good amateur and professional photography, stop in and see this exhibit. I submitted three pieces to the show and two of them made it onto the wall.
The photo above of the Lincoln Memorial was taken last fall at sunrise. The photo below was taken last summer at Widewater Gap on the C&O Canal near Great Falls-on-the-Potomac. The one photo that didn't make it into the exhibit was my picture of the Washington DC Temple. In hindsight, I should have submitted my photo Hopperesque, rather than the one of the temple. Still, I'm rather pleased to participate. I think I may enter this contest next.
The free exhibit is called Monuments of Faith and is open to the public seven days a week until September 14. If you go, be sure to look for two pieces by this blogger and one by her four-and-three-quarters-year old daughter (who is mistakenly listed as 10 years old. The Dormouse was quite succinct and precise about her age, so far be it for me to say she's four! And someone on the photo committee needs to check and correct their information. Although, if you've ever met the Dormouse, you'd think she was 10!)
