First I would like to say congratulations to all of my friends and their accomplishments at IPC this year. I am always amazed by the quality of work and blessed to call so many of you my peers.
This was my first year to enter IPC or the International Photographic Completion, and I wasn't 100% sure what to expect.
I am honored to have earned my first ever Merit with my image Whispering Waters, a photograph I took on film in college.
I would like my friends Ashleigh, Jessi, and Kassi for all of there support and critiques, Deanna for her input on the final tweaks and Alison for have such an awesome presentation two and a half years ago at Photogenisis that convinced me that PPA was really worth joining and how much i could learn.
