I had a surprising phone call this morning informing me that my photo [link]
had been chosen as the Grand Prize Winner in the Grey County Tourism [link]
Photo Contest. The prizes are quite amazing worth more than $5,000.00 but the big news is that my photo will be published in the June issue of Canadian Geographic and that is so huge I can hardly take it in.
Enough about me. Winter continues here with no letup. The January thaw has not materialized so I guess the 2 days of rain that we had after Christmas will go down in weather history as the warm spot in the winter of 08/09.
Richard and I are planning to get away for a couple of weeks. Well drive south until we can take our coats off and get our golf clubs out. Our exact date of departure has not yet been decided because we are keeping our eye on the weather in South Carolina. If it isnt warm enough there we will probably continue on to Florida. I expect that there should be lots of photo ops along the way. We will of course have our laptops with us so we will keep in touch.
I am rethinking my friends feature. For the past couple of months I have been doing a feature of people who watch me. I have come to the conclusion that this is a labour intensive way of going about it and I am changing, as of now, to featuring 3 or 4 artists every couple of weeks. I will select friends randomly and Ill get around to everyone sooner or later.
