Weekly Winners


This past week I've been working on a photo book competition I found on the Shutter Sisters' blog. Here are some photos featured in it. Happy Weekly Winners Sunday!

These are truly beautiful. Like Rose, I have always wished I could take beautiful, interesting photos but have never been able to manage. I have so much respect for this particular talent!!!

Great set! I especially liked the marquee shot, too. I am jealous that you were in San Fran!! I haven't been there for years and that pic totally makes me want to be there.

Hi again! Did I mention that I majored in photo-j in college last time I visited your blog? I gave it up to go work with low-income youth, but I still pick up the camera occasionally and appreciate good photography. Your stuff is great! You have a good eye for color and lines. I also like the way you find unique angles. Keep 'em coming!

I've always loved the colors you put in Superior Snaps like these. And you always know just what to highlight...a true gift!
