I recently published my 400th post and will soon be welcoming my 200th follower! With both 'milestones' happening in such close proximity it set me to thinking what a rewarding experience this blogging adventure has been. It all began last June (2009) and has really been the impetus for my growing delight in photography. I really had to work hard and stretch to measure up in the smallest way to the amazing photography discovered here in the blogosphere! It has opened up a whole new avenue of expression for me and I owe much of it to all of you and your encouragement.
YOU, of course, are the best 'discovery' made throughout this process. I have received and learned so much from all of you and am deeply grateful for your visits and comments here. Visiting your blogs, in turn, has been a feast for the eyes, senses, mind and funny bone. Encountering so many different points of view from around the globe has been truly enriching.
So to mark my 400th post and soon-to-be 200th follower AND to thank all of you who have graced me with your presence here, I want to offer a giveaway of one of my photographs. There will be two winners - for no particular reason. I have posted six 8 x 10 inch photographs from which you can choose the one you would like should you be picked by 'Random.org'. I will announce the TWO winners on this blog at 1:00 p.m. EST Friday, March 12th. You do not have to have previously commented here to enter btw!
To enter you must:
* simply leave a comment here, telling me which ONE photograph you would like to receive if you are randomly selected
* make sure I can access you to get your email address, should you be one of the lucky two selected
If after announcing the 2 winners at 1:00 p.m. EST, Friday March 12th, I do not hear back from you with your co-ordinates in 24 hours, the prize will go to the next in line in Random.org's selection.
#1 - Queen Anne's Lace Mosaic
#2 - Tree Trunk After Rain
#3 - Pink Orchid
#4 - Winter Sunset Through Branches
#5 - Chicory
#6 - White Hydrangea Mosaic
Should you be one of the two chosen by Random.org, you will receive your choice of photograph (one only) in a minimalist (fancy word for inexpensive) black frame. You will be able to hang and enjoy it right away, or you can mat it and encase it in a frame to match your decor. I wish I could send a thank-you photograph out to everyone, ('regulars', occasional commenters, those who read but don't comment, etc.) but for now there will be only two selected. Good luck to all!
