First of all, I just want to say how excited I was to learn that Monica and I won first place awards for the recent AOL Community Photo Challenge. I am humbled by the judges choices and I also want to say thank you to all who left me such nice comments about my photo. I must say, Monica's photo was great, too, and I'm glad we are getting to share the award. Interesting that a winner in the advanced Challenge and Nancy, the winner in the Beginners Challenge had a cat in the shot, LOL. For a complete list of winners and links to see their entries click on this link: AOL Community Photo Advanced Challenge.
While I'm at it, let me add that I was really impressed with the photos in the Beginners Challenge. We have some great photographers here in J-Land at all levels! Click on this link to see the winners of the Beginners Challenge: AOL Community Photo Beginners Challenge.
Now, while we are on the subject of awards. There has been an award being passed around J-Land sinced the beginning of the month. It is the Nice Matters award and it is really a great way to tell each other that we think they are nice and that someone appreciates them. I want to thank those that have sent this award on to me and apologize about taking so long to post on the subject. You will see my award proudly displayed now in my sidebar on the left. There are two versions of the award, one for the ladies and one for the gents.
As I traveled around J-Land these last ten days or so, I have noticed that almost everyone already has recieved one of these. So nice to see the widespread show of kindness. Here are some very deserving folks who need to have one of these on their sidebar, too. First the ladies:
Well, I'm off now to go on a little photo adventure. If I'm successful at shooting the event I am about to go witness, I'm sure you will be seeing the results here in some future post. I need to stop and get a haircut on the way there, so I'd better get a move on. Take care everyone, I'll see you all next Monday or Tuesday for sure.
