There aren’t many people who haven’t heard of Anne Geddes. The wonderful creativity and unique niche of her photography is so distinctive.
FineArtAmerica is currently hosting a National TV photo contest that she will be judging. The winners of the competition will appear in their next TV commercial which is scheduled to begin airing in July 2015.
To make it through the first round your photos need to get at least 250 votes. There are thousands of entries and the last number I saw of shares of the competition were over 38 000! Some lovely people have already voted for my work and that was very heartwarming!
Competition is so tough but since this is the week of shipping for the #YourTurnChallenge I have submitted my three entries and I’m hoping for the best!

While watching the news this morning there was a report about a weight-lifting Mum showing off her six pack and causing a firestorm. She did it by posting a photo with a caption on Instagram. It offended some and got support from others. It also made me think about a beautiful and thought-provoking song Try by Colbie Caillat.
To me the interesting thing about this story – it all happened because of a photograph.
Images tell a story like nothing else can. It’s why photography is fascinating and captivating.
I recently posted a floral photograph on my Facebook page. It was not an image I had thought much of but it got a significant response from my friends. We don’t always know what resonates with people in the art we produce but it’s great to know when a connection has been made.
What are you photographing today?

I recently posted some photos of the miniature daffodils already blooming in the garden and a comment from fellow photography blogger Sophie L then inspired this bit of fun with some of my other flower photos. I have always loved Lewis Carroll’s book Alice in Wonderland and the Disney animated movie was thoroughly enjoyable too. Since I still have some other flower pics I may do a few more! Thanks for the inspiration Sophie!

After procrastinating for ages I finally started playing with Photoshop Elements 10. I’ve had it for a almost a year but have had no inclination to try it – until today when I just couldn’t get the effect I wanted in camera.

So I have planted small blue pansies in pots to replace my petunias. They are so pretty I had to pick a few to take pics.
