Fulton County Fair Photo Exhibits

Last week our little rural county celebrated with its 89th annual Fulton County Fair.

Not a big fair by anyone’s standard it still has plenty to see from new to antique farm machinery, livestock, produce, crafts etc. Once again I entered a few of my favorite photographs taken since last years fair. The following is a run down of the shots that placed.


2nd Place Color Animal


2nd Place Color Flower



2nd Place Modified B&W



1st Place Night



With Pennsylvania’s politicians unable to agree upon a budget the fair did not receive the expected state funding and was unable to pay premiums. Personally I didn’t mind the lack of premiums. My biggest disappointment was that the ID tags attached remained folded after the judging; keeping the names of the entrants concealed during the entire fair.

Fulton County is a small county with a small population and it is always fun to see who captured/created the various entries as more often than not one either knows or knows of the individual proud enough of their work to support the fair by exhibiting it for all to see.

Meggie said...

Call me prejudiced, but I think the first one of the fawn deserved first place!

Congratulations Salty! They are all lovely!

Congratulations Coy, like you just being recognized for a good photo is more important than winning some money. Of course I always except cash, LOL.

Congratulations on the wins Salty!
Annoying that thing about the tags, but hey, your photographs are AWESOME and they got what they deserved! Recognition!!
Although, like Meggie, I think some could have been 1st prize instead of second :)

My congratulations too Salty. They are all super shots. Too bad they covered the winners names. I think its important to give the pictures the recognition they deserve.

Too bad about the name tags, it's kinda ridiculous...

Worthy winners though, and a big congrats on some special images!

The B&W hands with color rings was very appealing!
