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?
Half Moon Rainbow
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.
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.
Good luck and best of success!
