Class Cancelled

My last photography class was cancelled tonight. It is being rescheduled for next week, but since Chris will be heading to Canada to check out the oats, I won't be able to go (if only Sydney could babysit). So, since I won't be showing off my final project in class, I'll show it off here. The assignment was to do a photo essay and present five photos in class. Now this class was only 6 weeks long, and I didn't have nearly as much time as I thought I might to focus on the techniques and lessons each week, so I'm no where near a great (or even decent) photographer. But I did learn quite a bit. I might invest in a better camera (an SLR) here in the next few months (Christmas gift anyone?), and I plan on doing some learning on my own (I got myself a library card tonight). Lyndsay over at Life in Motion Photography is completely self-taught, and she is awesome. Her photos truly inspire me, plus she's a mom of three (and that is inspirational in and of itself). I don't plan on starting my own photography business like she did, I really just want to take some great shots (I have the perfect subject). So, without further ado...my photo essay, taken at the Lake in the Hills Rockin Rotary Ribfest:
