September already!  Wow! Thought it was about time for an update for those of you following my blog. To begin with, I just found out that I am one of the Top Ten finalists in the Organic Gardening Magazine photo contest! I cannot even begin to express how excited I am about this news. The following is a link to the photo contest, my image is number 3. Because I want to make sure there isn’t a conflict in showing the image on this page, I will ask you to click on the link to check out the image as well as view the other finalists.

People always seem surprised when I tell them what camera I use.  I have always been one of those make the best of what you have type of people and I have been very happy with the results of my macro shots using my Canon Powershot. I won’t deny that I would love to upgrade in the near future, possibly by winning this contest! Online voting is open through the end of this month and you can vote once a day if you want. I appreciate your votes as it will help bring me one step closer to winning.
