Wet dog...

 got a little nerve and decided to enter a photo in my very first contest.  This is a big step for me because I am learning to be more confident in my photography.  MeRa Koh hosts the contest and it is always so neat to see what people come up with.   

The contest this month can have anything to do with water.  I have had this shot in my head for about a week now and I am happy to say that I pretty much nailed it today.  I did have to "set up the scene."  I suited the kids up and had them give Sam a bath.  As soon as Sam would shake, I would shoot like it was my job...hahahaha.  So, after 140 shots...I got the one that I wanted to enter.  

Oh yeah, I can't forget...I met the famous Cindy Cieluch today!  I can't say enough how wonderful she is.  What an amazing woman!  She is so sweet and a HUGE encouragement to me.  I so look up to her and am thrilled for her success.  You rock girl!!!  I am looking forward to hanging out again :)

Tell me whatcha think of my entry?  Do ya think I have a chance?  Oh and to let ya'll know, the winner is based on the votes of da people.  So if you really want me to win..."VOTE FOR ME"

PS...the file I gave to them did not have the case you were wondering ;)

  3. I LOVE it! I think you have a great shot at winning the whole kabang! I would be seriously shocked if it was not in the final 5 - it's that good!

    I've been thinking about what I would like to enter but I don't think I will now... I was thinking of doin the kids in front of the ocean. Hmm...

    GOOD LUCK and I will vote for you!

I was going on & on to Matt about how genuinely sweet you are...and how much we have in common. :) Hope to meet for coffee again soon. I'm always up for Five Loaves...
