Hanging on the Wall

…were two of 14 winning photographs selected by Raytheon yesterday for gracing the walls of the company’s cafeteria here in Tucson. My two submissions are part of my small collection of photos I’ve been practicing taking this year.

Raytheon is having the winning photographs professionally enlarged (24”x36”) and framed. After three months, the pictures will be returned to us and a new contest will open.

My husband’s two photographs were also chosen—I love it that we did this together. Now the two of us are going to hang around on walls for 12,000 employees and company visitors to see. That’s pretty nice.
