Allergy: Yesterday Laura and I went to visit the Jepsen Prairie Preserve (You’ll see it soon.) to see their vernal pools. As soon as I stepped onto the area around the pools. I started sneezing and couldn’t stop! Did I have tissues with me? No. It wouldn’t have mattered because I could not have brought enough. I had to use my shirt I use as a light jacket. Oh my.
Cold: When I got home, the sneezes kept coming. I finally realized it must be a cold. I’m not sure how this allergy/cold affected my shooting. I looked at my images briefly last night, but didn’t get them into Lightroom.
More: I’m preparing prints for juried competition for the first time at tomorrow night’s Sierra Camera Club meeting. I’m a little nervous. But, it’s all part of the learning and growth experience. I’ll let you know how I did.
Now, back to Ironstone Vineyards in Murphys and their beautiful grounds. This winery has a museum, tasting room, cafeteria, amphitheater and hosts events. When you’re there, it’s time to relax and rejuvenate. That is unless you have an allergy or a cold. Next time I go out, I’m bringing a whole tissue box with me!

Well done images. Looks like an interesting place to go to photograph.
Hope your cold or what ever it is is under control.
Good luck with the competition.
Thanks Tim. The cold/allergy is getting under control. No more sneezing!
Olga, you’re welcome. I know that you are pleased to have curtail the sneezing. It really screws up your photograph unless you want blurred images.
Good luck with the print competition tomorrow!
Thanks Steven. I’ve got my entries matted and ready. Once I build up confidence with this club, I hope to enter elsewhere.

I’m a big fan of open judging. While I may not always agree with the judges, it gives me insight on what they find important – even as it varies from judge to judge. Plus, I get to see other people’s work, which is always exciting for me.
It’s all subjective. I think it’s important to understand what they look for and learn–as you said! This group has a bunch of excellent photographers in it. I think I’m in for a lot of learning!
