Looking over the many and varied photos on exhibit at the Northern Gila County Fair people of various appetites have their own opinions about what is art and what are merely pictures framed. The photos this year were a great mix of landscapes, people, situations and animals of many kinds.
Stories this photo appears in:
A boy with haunting eyes, a Russian girl spinning yarn in slanted light, vivid sunsets, moody sunrises, a flower petal zoomed in on to create a landscape of veins and droplets — languid dreams and visual punch lines covered eight vibrant walls in the exhibition tent at the 2011 Northern Gila County Fair. Judging the photographs, Payson Roundup editor Tom Brossart gave each photo his undivided attention. Brossart has taken photos professionally for more than 30 years.
