An Award? Me?

ImageI go away for a while and come back to find out that I’ve been nominated for the “Beautiful Blogger Award”.  I wonder if this happened as a reward because I was away … are people trying to tell me something? OK, OK, I’m just kidding.  My heartfelt thanks to Sally at http://lensandpensbysally.wordpress.com/ for the nomination.  Please don’t tell her I’m saying this but her blog has  really great, envy- and awe-inspiring photographs and posts.  It is true, but we don’t want her to get a big head and all 😉

I started this blog not too long ago, or at least it seems like it hasn’t been too long.  Maybe it’s just been a lot of fun to share slices of life as seen through my eyes and my camera.  When I started this, I made a commitment to myself to post only my own photographs and to shoot/edit/crop/filter and otherwise post-produce using only my smartphone.  For better or for worse, I’ve kept that commitment and the results are out there for the world to see.  I realize that sometimes I may go a little overboard with the posting, but I swear I’m trying to get better and post fewer images.

Since I’m not that good with words, I’ll just jump straight into the award rules.  So, without further ado, I present to you the 7 things about myself and the 7 nominations (I don’t know who came up with these rules, but good job. I like 7’s):

7 Things About Myself

  1. In addition to liking 7’s, I also like 8’s.  8 has been my favorite number since I was a kid.
  2. I love to cook and the results are usually good.  I also love to try different foods and cuisines.
  3. I’m a male.
  4. I have almost zero photography training, which, I guess, it’s not that big a secret to those of you who see my images
  5. I once rode a mechanical bull and held on for about 4 seconds a looong time.
  6. I’m developing a taste for heavily editing my images.  Some times the results are good and some other times, well, let’s change the subject.
  7. Craft brews, microbrews, any-brews … love them all.  Actually, I do have some standards for my beers and ales and I try to have a new, unknown one at least once a month.

7 Nominations

First, I must say that coming up with a list of only 7 blogs is really tough.  There are so many of you out there posting terrific and inspiring stuff.  But, rules are rules and we must stick to them.

  1. Charissa at http://almostaphotographer.wordpress.com/
  2. Cindy at http://cindyknoke.com/
  3. Sarah at http://illustriouspeacock.wordpress.com/
  4. Shutterbug Sage at http://ayearofpics.wordpress.com/
  5. Miret at http://flaneriefeminine.com/about/
  6. Seth Snap at http://sethsnap.wordpress.com/
  7. Emiliano at http://screwiness-o-rama.com/

And … and … that’s it.  Now on to notify all these great bloggers that the baton is now in their hands.
