My entries into the SD Fair

Thanks to everyone who voted for their favorites. I’ve decided on the following 4 photos to enter into the San Diego County Fair.

1. Every single person who voted put this somewhere on their list. I was going to submit it no matter what, but it’s nice to see everyone agrees with me. :)

a moment of calm. a life fulfilled.

2. Tied for 2nd most popular photo. I wasn’t 100% sure about this one, but you all convinced me.

3. This one tied for 4th. Out of the others before and after it in votes, it fit better into the categories available in the contest.

4. This one didn’t receive a ton of votes, but I think it fits the Fair’s theme  (Race to the Fair) very well.

Facing the challenge

There you have it. For all those who voted for ’spiral of pain’ (or any other favorite), I just couldn’t figure out a good category for it to fit into, and I only have so much money for entry fees. I’ll find out on May 4th if any photos have been selected for display at the Fair.

Help me decide what photos to enter in the SD Fair

I’m going to submit 3-5 photos in the San Diego County Fair Exhibition of Photography. It costs $18 per entry, so I need to limit how many I enter. Unfortunately, I forgot the deadline was tonight at midnight! So I need your help deciding which of the ones below to enter. If you have a favorite photo I’ve taken that isn’t shown here, please let me know. To vote, leave a comment, send me an email or contact me on Twitter or Facebook. If you vote for more than one, please put them in numerical order of which you like best. So without further adieu:
