Call for Art: San Francisco Bay Month of Photography, 2019 Edition

I thought that the competition was biannual.  I was bi-wrong.

The other day, I received an e-mail alert that the San Francisco Bay Month of Photography gallery competition was up and ready and accepting entries for 2019.

Wait, 2019?  Like … this year?

Yep, kids.  This year.

In the past, I’ve entered this competition twice, with my best success coming with The Three-Two Pitch earning a Silver level honor.  But silver doesn’t get you on the gallery walls in San Francisco …

For the moment, I’ve entered three images, and I haven’t decided yet if I’m adding more.  So … for all intents and purposes … my three entries for the San Francisco Bay Month of Photography competition are …

Washington County 2:30 am

Yeah, you knew this was getting entered, didn’t you?  My triple blue of the Rexleigh Bridge with its Milky Way in the distance… yes, I’m going to ride this horse until I can’t ride it any more.

How about these other entries?

Yes, this picture is now making its Competition Season 2019 debut.  I think it has just enough angle and charm to get noticed by the judges.  Whether or not it gets on the gallery walls … that’s out of my hands.

And finally….

Mittsu no yuki (三つの雪)

My “three snowflakes” shot with the extension tubes.  I’m hoping this little treasure has a chance to shine.

And here’s the thing.  I have until May 15 to submit more entries.  So there MIGHT be one or two more photos I can consider.  That is … if I get them taken in time.  Taking a concept out of my brain and putting it on a digital level is tough.

But I do encourage all my photography friends to consider entering their shots in this competition.  You have nothing to lose.  And you have everything to gain.  And I hope that your best shots adorn the walls of the best art galleries in San Francisco.

Here’s the link to the call for art.

Good luck and best of success!
