Contests and Results

April 5th, 2016

Started entering contests on Fine Arts America in mid December just to challenge myself and see what peers thought of my work. The contests are very cool in that they are themed; you have 2-10 days to enter, must follow specific rules and peer photographers from all over the world vote and sometimes comment. I have always loved seeing other interpretations of a given subject. Ann is also hooked and is actually hosting a few contests.

Several contest results below:

Random Photos

January 8th, 2016

If anyone is wondering why photos are added in a random order - that's me. I only had about 19 photos on the site for 2 years and am just getting off my butt to really look at my photos. I just pick a directory on the old external drives and look at everything for potential "keepers". Plans are hopeful for me to finish my batch uploads by the end of January.
