Rewarding


359/365
My mid-afternoon cup of tea. I usually need it for warmth, and the caffeine boost doesn't hurt, either.

Today, I was hoping my little teatime ritual would bring me some calm... because I am totally out of my mind excited about one of my photos being chosen as a finalist in The Pioneer Woman's photo contest!!!!! Of thousands of images, she chose mine as one of the final dozen! The category was dog photos, and there are some amazing images by loads of talented photographers in the contest. Here's the link.

Tomorrow, we'll know the winners. But, really -- truly -- I don't think I could be any more excited even if I did win. Wow!!!

Wow.

Just wow.

Rupe put in his two cents.

But, no matter what, Rupe tips his hat your way. For them to be in your company is a great honor for them.

Good luck.

Rupe applauds you - long and loudly .....

Rupe, thanks for your two cents -- they are worth SO much more, though! :)

I check your blog every day and "The Dood Abides" always stands out as one of my favorite pictures on this site (not just because of the Big Lebowski reference either). Well deserved... GOOD LUCK!

Woohoo! Congrats Chris! I knew that was an amazing photo! I checked out the competition...pretty stiff. No idea how she is going to decide - so many amazing shots! GOOD LUCK! :-)

Wanted to come over and tell you how much I love your picture in Pioneer womans contest. its just so great.

Ruprecht said...

Back to say exactly what I said above.

With one addition:

Rupe applauds you - even longer and more loudly .....

Congrats Chris. Reading what other strangers thought of your photo must have been great (- you know all of us love your pics already). The competition was tough - I'm sure you know a way or two that you can spend your runner-up gift certificate.
Congrats again on being a finalist!!!!

The Management said...

Thank you, thank you, thank you, everyone!!!! Maybe we didn't win, but I'm still on cloud 9, and your support is a big part of that! Mwah!
