A Great Start

 Congratulations – 1st Aug., 2015, my first  feature for the month of August!  The month's are flying by.  The images in this collection are really lovely, so I was really flattered to be included.  My image, Cascade, is also entered in a Challenge sponsored by Enchanted Flowers, so it will be interesting to see how well it does too.

LOOK DOWN! The world Beneath Our Feet

My image, Moody Bleu, was selected as a finalist in a challenge presented by a new group for me, Look Down. I think it is fun to see things from a different perspective now and then, so I am glad I entered this challenge.  Really nice images in the group, I think. Moody Bleu is the top row left image of a blue child's toy umbrella.

A Stroke of Light - Feature

  One of my favorite groups, Pixelations, selected my image  Stroke of Light,  seen here, as a feature. It was one of those spur of the moment images that completely surprised me as the result of the lovely lighting on a summer's day.

Summer Time - A Winner!

 Well, a lazy Tuesday yielded a brand new feature of my new image, Summer Time, in a favorite group, Closeups in Nature.

 Just submitted today, I felt strongly about testing it's value with a group like this.  I'm happy to know that my instincts were right. Thank you Alix!

Well, my image End of Time, was selected as a Top Ten Finalist, in the latest Shapes and Patterns Challenge - Transience.  End of Time is in the top left corner.  It is a really well balanced selection of images, difficult to imagine when people have the choice of maybe 40 to 50 different images to choose from. I like being part of the final selection.

Well, having taken a brief is officially over and I am back to photography and hopefully collecting more features and challenges in the coming days.

Stay tuned.

My image, Summer's Here, has been featured in a new group for me called, Layered Up. 

It was very nice to join in the selection of really great images showing so much texture and creativity.  Fun to be included here, for sure.

WITHERED. (All things Old, Worn and Weathered)

 Well, the week has started off fairly well, with a Top Ten Challenge Winner in a great group called Withered.  My image, Can't Find Orion, did well in this great group that featured old and cobwebby places.  Really a fun challenge.  Orion is on the top row, left corner.
