Snow White

A grim take on Brothers Grimm famous fairy tale. I loved reading their stories when I was little. And, I still do.

Guess what? My "Catch Me If You Can" photo, the one that won second place in the architecture competition in town, sold yesterday! :-) Yay!! :-) The lady who bought it wanted me to sign it, but they couldn't reach me since I was volunteering at the Visitor's Center in the afternoon. I got her card, so I send her a 'thank you' note :-) I also cashed in my award check and I am going to use the money to print and frame some more photos. :-) Life is good! :-) Me and Jeremy celebrated with some yummy dinner courtesy of me and some homemade fudge, courtesy of the neat sweet shop on Mainstreet :-)

I think I'll post something sunnier and bright tomorrow... But, who knows, it's Halloween week after all! Do you have your costumes ready? :-)
Fabulous

Fantastic! Awesome perspective.

Congrats on your sale! How very exciting for you. I am trying to make myself take the plunge and get a booth at a craft show. All I really want to do is to make money to buy myself new camera gadgets!

Ooooooh, I love it so much Slava. Hate spooky honestly but this bridges childhood and the knowledge of horror in the world. Fantastic. Love the colors, execution, processing, focus, story elements, all of it working together. I hope this wins the theme challenge so far!!!
