balance

i have really exciting news to share.  I was notified  by my group leader,  Scott Eccleston, that one of my entries in Scott Kelby's Worldwide Photo Walk here in Portland,  was chosen as my group's winner!  wow.  it was a day of firsts for me. first to get out and meet other photogs in my city, first competition, or photo walk for that matter, that i have ever done.  i have my hubby to thank for reading of  the walk and completely encouraging me to sign up.  it was totally out of my comfort zone.  i was nervous, like a first day of school nervous.  we had gorgeous weather, and thankfully for me, lots of sun to shoot with that day.  i was very pleased with what i got once i got home and as able to comb over my shots.  it was really great to see all the images seeing how each person saw something i totally missed or something i shot in a totally different light.  please go check out Portland's  group on flickr if you haven't already to see all of the wonderful images of the Old Port here in Portland, Maine.  my image will be sent along with 1 winner from each of the participating cities worldwide. from those images a grand prize "world" winner will be selected, what an honor.  i do think it a bit funny though, the winner, the image of mine that will seen by Scott Kelby himself, well he will be looking at this.....
seagull butt!   lol  :)
