So I decided to enter a photo contest – the prize is a NEW BLOG from Into the Darkroom. There are 171 entries. So my chances SLIM… The winners will be picked two ways. One is with judges. The other is a popular vote.
The theme was “Capture the Summer Feeling” and it said: “submit one photo that really captures the summer feeling. we are looking for images that really tell a summer story. make you feel like your 10 again with a jar full or lighting bugs in the backyard. beaches, pools, hot dogs and bbq, whatever your summer is, share it for a chance to win.”
So as you can see, even though my entry is a SNAPSHOT not a portrait, it fits the theme perfectly.
When I sent it in, I got this note back:
When the deadline comes to a close, the popular vote will start, so get as many people voting for you as possible!
Normally I frown on people BEGGING for votes in a photo contest. But for this one, it actually has a second component besides the judges. THE POPULAR VOTE! So I need your help. This will be tough to win, but I figure, it cannot hurt to give it a shot. Right?
So click here to vote, and PRETTY PLEASE vote for my twins dumping seaweed on each other. Here is a screen capture of what you are looking for – it is entry 0020. Click on the thumbnail of this image on their site and then vote for it. IF I WIN, YOU ALL WIN SINCE I WOULD GET AN EVEN COOLER BLOG to POST ON. I think I would be able to even embed videos then!!! Anyway – thank you for voting. Oh, and ask your friends and relatives to vote for my seaweed summer girls too! Spread the word!
Thanks a million.
