One of the things I like to do before I take my entries for the Iowa State Fair Photography Salon down to enter them is going to the State Center Rose Garden to photograph the roses. This year the due date for the Photography Salon happened to be the same date as the State Center Rose Festival. Since Nader went with me, we decided to walk around and check it out.
Not much was going on that early in the morning but the barbecue contest, but I took several pictures of it.
Still plenty more pictures from this day left to share!
