This afternoon I went to pick up my prize at Meadow Mews for having the 'best local photo'.
It was very exciting. Altogether the camera and printer is worth $578. It is actually a really nice little camera - it even plays its own slideshow on the camera, including music! I love that it has a rechargeable battery. Every other little digital camera I have had didn't have a rechargeable battery and went through the batteries like they were going out of fashion. It won't replace my digital SLR, but it will be handy to have for those times when I can't be bothered taking out my big camera. Jalen has had lots of fun playing with it tonight.
I'll have to keep snapping away and enter again next year. This year was the first time I had ever entered the competition and I was very lucky to have two pics in the final, and especially lucky to win it! I don't think that will happen again, but I will keep taking pics ready for next year's comp now!
