The photographs were taken inside the TENT that is at the finish line. Interesting people watching for sure! Everyone looked like they had a great time! It even rained! Let's go to the races!
The Steeplechase here in Aiken, SC just took place this past Saturday. It was a lot of fun. Supposedly, it is suppose to be on everyone's bucket list. I have been editing the photographs that I have taken, but I am not finished yet. This particular photograph was one of my favorites. I did not enhance it or transform it in an editor. I think this is why I like it so much. National Geographic who's editor favorited one of my photographs tells us to keep the photographs REAL. This photograph is real, and I just love it. Maybe, it is just me, but to be a carefree child again dancing to a band all by myself, I am THERE. Feet off the ground, determination. The beautiful dress that she knows she is wearing. Priceless. Just love her, who ever she is...
