Best of Show!!

My Photographer Brother in-law Just won Best of Show at The 2009 Old World Wisconsin Foundation Photo Contest! You can view his winning photo on their site:

Can you tell I just Love his photographic art! Lawrence uses shadows to give depth to the story within the photo.

Keep shooting Lawrence!
and of course you know I had to add my 2 cents:

Best of Show

Lawrence is a person that looks and shoots

Stories in pictures in his cowboy boots

He captures a moment or an event

Forever in time for he's quite a gent

His talent is big as his smile is wide

He's always got a camera by his side

Off to roundups or rodeos

Always a picture wherever he goes

He's rounding up cattle or a horse or two

Working hard as cowboys do

Yet up in his saddle views catch his eye

He quick draws his camera and shoots, Oh my

A rodeo clown or a barrel racer

Careful he'll shoot, he's a photo chaser

A handsome cowboy dressed in his chaps

Shutters ready and off he snaps

With eyes of an artist and cowboy hands

His camera it follows his commands

With boots and spurs and his trusty horse

He'll capture your heart with a picture of course

Keep your dreams and hold onto them high

Cowboy, keep shooting in the blink of an eye

This is only the beginning of that I know

So Congratulations on your Best of Show

with Love and Light,

Nina P.

Your brother is an artist with a camera. I couldn't decide which shot I liked best but especially enjoyed the rodeo guys on the fence and the gal walking back with her head down. Also liked the flatland with the blue sky and white clouds. Thanks for stopping by at my place,... I'll be back here again!
