All Natural - Group Photography Exhibition

Sometimes going with your gut pays off.  It's not always comfortable, but the risk and discomfort of stepping out of our comfort zone is worth it!

Earlier this month I saw that there was a call for applications for an All Natural Photo Exhibit that would take place in February at a local gallery.  I am a novice photographer.  I am an avid nature photographer because I love plants and the outdoors, but I also have to so that I can study flower and foliage structure for my fiber arts.

So I decided to go for it and enter into this event.  The worst that could happen was that I'd get a rejection email.  I entered a series of five photographs.  Imagine my surprise when I received an email that one of my photographs was chosen to be a part of this exhibit.  Tomorrow morning I deliver my piece so that it can be arranged with the other 30+ photographs that were chosen.  I feel quite honored, very humbled.

My photograph is titled:  Peonies Series - Mingling with Mint 3

If you're local, I would love to have you stop by.  I'll be at the opening reception.
