On the Fence
  On the Fence
On the Fence
At the Macon County (IL) Fair, those showing an animal and winning a ribbon are given their ribbon while still in the show ring with their animal. It's customary for the recipients to put the ribbons in their back pockets - some of them end up with multiple ribbons in each back pocket if they show different animals in different classes. This young boy had just won a blue for his show pig - and took a seat in front of me on the fence to watch the next class compete. Photo taken June 2012.

Thanks, Carol - this is going to be my "Blue" Theme Day entry tomorrow. Again - it's not yet marked "Display" so I'm not sure how you were able to even see it yet!

But thanks for looking - you'll see it again tomorrow.

I so enjoy your framing here, Terry. And the color coordination of the jeans, shirt, and ribbon is dandy.

Nice theme entry Terry! I'm not sure how I was able to see it yesterday either, but it was in the "new arrivals." Anyway, Happy Theme Day!

So well seen, captured and presented and absolutely perfect for the 101 Blue theme with its "double entendre" of both color and subject fit. Congratulations on the group win, Terry.
Oh, and all uploads, whether entered in the contest and/or displayed or not, pass through recent arrivals; if Carol was there at the time you happened to upload (or browsed back far enough), she could see it.

Thanks, 101ers! This is a very special honor for me - and on Father's Day to boot - spending it with my grandson.

I will enter this one into next year's county fair contest - in the category of photos taken AT the county fair. I predict it'll do very well there - they'll like the fact that the viewer can tell the image is a Macon County Fair image.
