My Photo Was Chosen!

I just had to let you all know today I had a HUGE SURPRISE.  At the urging of my best friend who really liked a recent photo from my 365 project,  I entered a Pioneer Woman photo contest. And No it is not the picture above, nor the picture below.

I will give you the link to the site four lines down (which you can go to now, if you're the impatient sort), as it's waaay more exciting to see it with the other entries.  At least for me it is.

To my great surprise, the photo made it into "Day Two" of Pioneer Woman's "Depth of Field" contest.  I am so excited and absolutely thrilled to even be in the company of all the other amazing photographers.

Here is the link to the page: Pioneer Woman Photography where my photo is the second of two chain pictures.
Hmmm....She must like chains.
Maybe next, I should enter a picture of my glasses and their sexy librarian chain?
Maybe she's unkowingly drawn to them... you never can tell what someone's weakness is?

You can see my sexy solution for disappearing spectacles here ... if you happen to be the curious type. (Since you're obviously not the impatient sort mentioned above, because if you had been, you obviously wouldn't have read this far.)  Probably by this point though you are feeling a little impatient and that is my fault.  My apologies.  Moving forward...

For anyone who is interested in learning more about photography I would encourage you to check out Pioneer Woman's website.  She just recently re-posted three tutorials focusing on very simple photography techniques.   The series begins here, and be sure to check out the left side bar where all her photography tutorials are.
Thanks for reading my little "Rah Rah, Yippee" today.  This "honourable mention" will get me through many, many piles of laundry with a smile!  I was always a "Do I get a star for that?" kind of kid, and some things never change.  No matter how old you get.

Have A Great Day!

  6. Fantastic News! Ever since you sent me her link I always check in to see what she's written (only after reading your blog first of course). You are against some fine competitors on that site. Congrats!

  7. Congrats! I laugh about your glasses chain - my mother was forever misplacing her readers when I was growing up and it drove me nuts! I swear when I get mine (and it will be soon, I'm sure), I will buy a pretty chain and do the sexy librarian look just like you!

  8. WOW! Dana, you don't toot your own horn enough. Pdub??? THe actual Pdub??
