It’s fair time, part 2

I am usually so good at planning out my time, but this coming weekend is a major failure.

It’s fair time next week, and I have a lot of work to do. I have to prepare my three photos, and one isn’t even chosen (poll below). I also have to bake chocolate chip cookies and lemon bars. I don’t need a trial run with the lemon bars, but I do with the cookies, and I’m not sure when I’ll have time for that. All of my entries need to be turned in on Tuesday for judging on Wednesday.

Time is a problem because I am going to Stratford, Ontario, on Thursday and Friday to see two Shakespeare plays: “The Tempest” with Christopher Plummer and “As You Like It.” Stratford is about five hours away, so going there requires some time.

Also this weekend, I am attending a wedding, so that will eat up most of Saturday. Then on Sunday, I am going to the German-American Festival in Toledo, where I am also submitting a dessert, which I will have to prepare in small portions over Friday night and Saturday.

Before I can bake, I need to organize all my recipes and get all the ingredients I need, and I will need over a dozen eggs and probably a dozen sticks of butter, as well.

And now, it’s time to vote for your favorite flower photo to help me decide on my fair submission! Below you will find six photos, each with a name, and then, there is a poll below the photos, where you can vote for your favorite.

    All are gorgeous, but water lily is my fave!

    I voted lilies at your house:) Really gorgeous colors, cool light/shadow/less focused thing going on in the background, well-chosen frame.
    The rose is also cool because of the water droplets. But probably a lot of people photograph roses.
    The other lilies have a cool angle/perception/frame (whatever you call that, haha) and nice background/foreground contrast but aren’t as striking light and color-wise.
    Of course I like the picture taken in Huron:) I especially like that you can see a lot more than just the flower, even though the flower is obviously the focus of the photo.
    The other two are also very nice but just don’t strike me as much, although the narcissus is a great color and looks really cool against its backdrop.
    Hope that helps!
