3rd Place

Sometimes 3rd place is awesome. 

I usually like to blog about others but today its all about me.  I just received a phone call letting me know that I won 3rd prize in a local Artsfest.  I was shocked and elated at the same time.  I've entered my work for the last two years just hoping to sell some pieces but never won anything.  Now my photograph will be hanging at the Art Show with a big fat ribbon on it.

Here's the photograph.

This was taken on the Jetty on Martha's Vineyard.  The little boy is my nephew who happened to be doing a little jig on the rocks.  I didn't notice the sailboat in the background until I looked at the photo on the computer.

Of course my parents thought it should have been first place, but 3rd place is fine with me.
