I stopped by my FB friend Anna’s page Best Garden Blogs this morning.
She’s always sharing great garden blog links, and I came across this:
Gardening Gone Wild Picture This Photo Contest
Now normally I wouldn’t enter a photo contest.
To be honest, last fall Mandolin looked online for me to get directions on how to take a close up shot.
I’ve had the camera for years.
I’m a gardener, not a photographer.
What caught my eye was a mason jar. hmmm…
When you read the article, which has great photo taking advice, you’ll see they are aiming (no pun intended) this contest at ‘point-and-shoot’ people.
Hey, that about sums up my skill level right there.
I like this…
So I followed the suggestions in the post, and had a lot of fun on this wintery day playing in my kitchen.
I used what I had- seed packets and eggs.
I took a lot of shots and deleted most. I narrowed it down to 6
I can only submit 1, and it has to be in just a few days.
Please help me choose by commenting with your 1st and 2nd choice.
The pic that gets the most votes will be submitted to the Gardening Gone Wild’s Picture This Contest January 2011
I like this one because of the stillness of the little seedling with the world rushing around outside
Perhaps I am just desperate for spring, but that’s what I see in this picture.
This is just way cool, its the bottom of an inverted jar over an egg.
Because the chicken wouldn’t fit.
Seed packets under glass.
Seed packets in a different light.
So, I need your opinion.
If you would leave a comment with the 2 pics you think I should choose from, I’d appreciate it!
