i don't normally like to toot my own horn too much, but this is just too cool! my photo of the bubble just won Photo of the Year at http://www.photographycorner.com !!!



if you aren't familiar with it, it's a pretty good sized forum (9000+ members) that has the usual stuff, plus a regular photo of the month contest. this is their first PotY contest... in addition to braggin' rights, i also snagged over $3,600 worth of cash and prizes!!! i'm still in shock, i figured i'd do well to get an honorable mention, and only in my wildest dreams hoped to place in the top 3!! that photo, which i took just on a whim, has really turned into something special for me.... :G
Yes,Yes,Yes that is really gooood news. You did double gooood.

TOTALLY WACKY roger

Hi Squirl.

WOW!!! You must be beside yourself!!! I remember way back in the day when you first posted this shot, and I was amazed by the picture at that time. Shoot I remember when your avitar was a Squirl Now your practically famous, what with National Geographic and now picture of the year! DANG! and COOL!

I've shared your ongoing saga with my mother as we watch things unfold for you. It will be fun to tellher about this now.I'm so happy for you and look forward to hearing more good stuff in the future. A much deserved congratulations to you!

thanks to all of you for the kind words. i have to say, even though this shot has already gotten more thanits share of exposure, winning this contest was really cool! i'm not accustomed to having my work do that well, and have not become jaded like some people i've met. to me, this is big stuff, and very exciting... :G
