I. Candidates for Best Farmscape Photo 2016
I have to admit that this season was not one of our better ones for taking photos during the growing season.  It had nothing to do with subject matter and more to do with energy for photo taking pursuits.  Perhaps part of it has to do with the last category.
a. Frosty Fence in February

b. The Sun Always Rises in the  Southeast
c. If Only Every Evening Were Like This

d. Fluffy December Snow

II. Candidates for Working on the Farm Photo 2016
Tammy is most often the picture taker when people are the focus of the picture.  All but the last photo is Tammy's in this category.  We figure that's because Tammy likes people and people like Tammy.  Rob, on the other hand...  Well, let's just say he tries to be nice...   Yes, that's it!  He's very trying.

a. March Prep in Valhalla

b. the New Branch Office
c. We Dare the Vampires to Come for Us Now!

d. It Takes a Village to Put On Plastic

e. Farmer Selfie

III. Flowers on the Farm Photo 2016
We always try to take a photo or two of some of the nice flowers that grow at the Genuine Faux Farm.  Sometimes we are tempted to put alot of these on here simply because the flowers are pretty.  But, we control ourselves and pull out which ones seemed to come out the best.

a. More Color Than Most Iris

b. And All That Chive

c. Who Needs a Vase for a Flower Arrangement?
IV. A Little of This, A Little of That Photo for 2016
There are always pictures that don't fit any other category, so we just put them together and see what everyone likes!
a. Tree Trunk Art by Mother Nature

b. Beans, Beans, the Miracle Fruit

c. One of These Things...
V. The GFF Off Farm Photo 2016
We do try to get off the farm once in a while.  Sometimes, the destination provides some incredible opportunities for photos.
a. Got Your Goat (can you see them?)

b. Dew Drop Inn

c. A Path Worth Walking
