Horse Pull at Charlton Park
Only one more day for Barry County Fair. The photos that I entered this year were: Portrait – The Congers (2nd place), Charlton Park’s horse pull (1st place), Battle Creek’s balloon festival skyline (3rd place), YMCA Camp Algonquin (1st place), and the columbines from my spring garden (1st place). Overall, not bad.
The baseball photo is one that a student of mine made. He is going to be a great photographer!

LOCAL PHOTOGRPEHR HONORED WITH PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR
LOCAL PHOTOGRPHER ROSE HENDERSHOT OF PHOTOGRAPHIC MEMORY IN HASTINGS, MICHIGAN was awarded the Photographer of the Year award at the annual meeting of Michigan Triangle Professional Photographers of Michigan.
The award is based upon points earned through the annual print competition, print of the month, attending monthly meetings, and publishing articles in the monthly newsletter. The member with the most total points at the end of April each year is awarded Photographer of the Year at the annual meeting. This years competition was very close with less than 20 points difference between the top 5 photographers.
The whole idea behind this award is to honor an outstanding photographer who participates in print competition and is also involved in the group meetings on a monthly basis and shares their ideas in the newsletter. It will only make our organization stronger and promote personal growth to the members.
“What an honor it is to be named “MTPPA Photographer of the Year”! Congratulations Rose Hendershot, MTPPA Photographer of the Year 2010! We are blessed to have you in our organization.” Jackie Palmer, President Michigan Triangle Professional Photographers Association.
