Here's the next Photographic Society results, this time from CAS Photo Academy in India. On one hand, I entered photos in four different themes, and only had four photos accepted; not the best rate of return. On the other hand, one of my photos received a Merit Medal Award. Not bad. But a predictable choice: one of my most successful photos, "Rest and Upheaval," with Queen Dandelion at Rialto Beach in Olympic National Park. Also pictured here: "Calico," accepted in a PSA contest for the second time, featuring Marzipanned and a friend in Seattle in January 2019.
