(thank you thank you to everyone who took the time to vote, we won!)
I have had pictures make it into the finals over at Greeblemonkey’s monthly contest.
Since the very first one the contest has gained popularity and with popularity has come talent.
I made it this month to the finals. So many of the pictures are better than mine as far as technical details and level of difficulty. I can’t justify asking people to vote for me this time around without explaining myself since there are so many spectacular pictures that I would vote for over mine, you know, if it wasn’t me.
This is the picture that’s in the running, the one I took of Emily the first time she ever held Little Mr.
I never could have imagined this moment in a hundred million years.
To be there for it stopped my heart.
To be able to catch it on camera?
It felt as if the entire room had gone silent and still. I felt as though the clicks of my camera were loud as an air horn. Even writing about it seems to be messing with the moment too much.
Emily says she can never repay me for capturing this moment. Truth is I can never thank her enough for letting me be there. I’m really proud of this picture. The whole “a picture is worth a thousand words” thing? Yeah.
It only takes two clicks to vote, and I’d be honored to have yours. Thank you.
(Voting ends tonight at 10 PM EST. Midnight MST.)
