As you probably know, I LOVE to take photographs. My family looks upon this obsession with a collective shake of the head. My husband now reminds me to take my camera along on our walks. My daughter calls my camera a "fifth limb."
But I'm used to embarrassing my kids, and my husband is the one who gave me my camera! And I get the last laugh because I have actually had a photo published in a national magazine.
And now I have entered several photos in a contest called Great Destinations/NJ. The contest is sponsored by our local newspaper, The Star-Ledger, and P.C. Richards, an electronics store. Winners will have their photos published in a coffee table book, and are also eligible to win some neat prizes. I'm really excited about this contest, and as of right now, I have three photos that they say may be published!
Can I ask you all a big favor? Could you possibly sign up at the website and vote for my photos? I hesitate to ask, because they require you to give your email address, which means you will probably be getting email from the electronics store. But if you don't mind that, I would really appreciate it if you could vote. Click on the widget at the upper right hand corner of my blog where you can sign up and vote. The contest ends August 31st. I'll let you know how I do. Keep your fingers crossed!
(The widget has been up on my blog since yesterday, and I think some of you may have already voted. If you have, thank you SO MUCH!!!)
