Posts Tagged ‘organic gardening magazine photo contest’

As many of you know, I was a finalist in the Organic Gardening Magazine Reader’s Photo contest.  Well, I stopped in a bookstore yesterday and when I saw the magazine section I decided to see if they carried the magazine. I saw it was the Feb/March issue and I thought the results were going to be in the January issue but  decided to look at the issue anyways because I just love the magazine. Then I was looking through the pages I saw the winning image! It wasn’t mine, but my name is listed in the magazine as one of the top finalists. Maybe it sounds dorky but I am ecstatic to have MY name listed in a magazine that I love to read. This is my first time in a magazine AND they spelled my name right. 🙂 So for those interested in seeing the winning image AND just seeing my name in print check it out on page 16. At the end of the article they list that my image, and those of the other finalists, can be viewed online at OrganicGardening.com. A huge thank you to those that did take the time to vote for my image. Still dreaming of a DSLR and as it is on my list, I know it will happen one day. Thank you to Organic Gardening Magazine for sponsoring this contest and for all the great info you share with the world. *If you mind this image being shared here, please let me know and I will take it down. No intention of violating Rights on your magazine*

I am slowly updating this website to reflect more current things in my life. First thing that regular visitors may  notice is that I have added a “Massage/Bodywork” tab above. This tab and the pages connected to it are a loving work in progress. One I could have done last year, but for some reason the time just didn’t feel right until now.  So, the updates begin and I will allow myself plenty of time to get the pages to convey my information as heartfelt and accurate as possible. Massage/bodywork/energy work/healing  all come from my heart and it is important to me to try to present it via written word  as appropriate to that place.  Therefore I am giving myself the gift of time and patience to complete the updates.

I feel like the little bee in this picture. I have been out collecting all this pollen and now it is time to make my way back to the hive. If you look closely it almost looks like legwarmers, 80s flashback moment!

I am still waiting for the winner announcements from Organic Gardening Magazine. Ahh patience is a virtue!

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. I will show another one of my bee images at the bottom of this blog post.  I took both images with the same camera. The photo for the competition was taken using my Canon Powershot. Yes, that is correct, I use a point and shoot as I currently do not have a professional level SLR. 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.

I have a passion for taking photographs of bees. I have been following any news posts I can find on the disappearing bee. I have had conversations with a man at the local farmers market regarding his bees, the quality of the honey production, and their dropping numbers. I have expressed my interest in bees to other artists and have been sending out feelers for other artists that might want to participate in an art show to raise awareness to what is happening to bees and how it will effect all of us.  Not just in terms of the sweet honey the bees provide but in the pollination of our plants.  Ah, the interconnectedness of life!
