So I entered the above photo into About.com’s Photography Contest last month and guess what, I came up as one of the finalists. This is the same contest I won in January and was runner up two other times. Yay me! 🙂 The shot was taken with my now retired point & shoot. There’s no money of course, and no invite to Magnum Photography, but that’s okay it’s all in good fun. Here’s the link if you want to check it out.
More good news: Your Awesomeness (that’s what I’ve nicknamed her — her real name is Lindsay) at Vistek Camera called today to tell me my baby was ready for pickup!!! That’s two weeks sooner than expected. Yay some more! Turns out she (the cameras, not Lindsay) had a bit of dust on the sensor, probably allergies, but nothing a little TLC couldn’t fix right up. Gonna grab her (the camera, not Lindsay) in the morning. Boy I can’t wait.
