Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone,
It's not warm when she's away,
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone,
And she's always gone too long,
Any time she goes away.

2017 Shippensburg Fair Results

This year I quietly entered four pictures into the Shippensburg Fair. When asked how I thought I would do, I said that nothing really stood out like last year. The "Okeechobee Sunrise" was my best bet, but I thought maybe a little too dark. The "Pack Out" picture, as much as I liked it, I think was too busy. The "Richmond 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb" didn't stand much of a chance. The Ship Fair judges usually don't like fire pictures. I considered not entering it but eventually entered it in the 'Other' category. The "You're A Daisy If You Do" picture I thought too might stand a slim chance but flower pictures are tough there. Anyways, 1 blue and 1 red are fine with me. I don't take pictures for contests, I take pictures, the contest comes later. And hey the $8.00 I won should cover my printing, matting and framing costs  my gas to drive the half mile to enter them. See you next year... At The Fair.

Wish You Were Here

So, So you think you can tell,
Heaven from Hell?
Blue skies from pain?
Can you tell a green field,
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

That you would end up winning.

You'd put an arrow through my heart.

Little WIng

Well, She's walking through the clouds,
With a circus mind that's running wild,
Butterflies and zebras,
And moonbeams and fairy tales,
That's all she ever talks about,
And riding with the wind.
