    Look at you! Congratulations. I do love old doors, and padlocks, so that one is a winner in my book, too. It’s too bad you missed seeing the exhibition, but there will be other times.


  4. Hey, congratulations, Becca! That’s wonderful! It’s a great photo! 🙂

    Very Nice! Congratulations on third place…my favourite as well.


  9. All three photos are wonderful. I can see why the “Don’t lock me out” took a ribbon. The juxtaposition of old and new is very nice. Congratulations!


  10. Becca, all three photos are blue ribbon in my book! Spectacular ! The one that “locked up” third place brought a smile. The doorknob looks like a little person carrying a purse – did the judges see the same thing?

      JJ — Thank you!!! 😀

      I have absolutely no idea what the judges saw … I dropped the photos off while someone was staying with my mom for a few minutes for me to do so … and then I headed back to TX on Sunday when the ribbons were given out. I received the call late Sunday afternoon. I wish I had the chance to see the others — but the show comes down the Friday before I get back to LA. I will miss it all the way around!!
