It is a truth universally acknowledged that a rainy day becomes much cheerier when one is in possession of a turquoise umbrella.

Photography Contest!

102_8847-1Well, we had a simply wonderful time at the beach (as well as a great 18th birthday!) …this really has no bearing at all to my post, but I thought I would mention it anyhow. ;P
I’ve decided that it would be fun to host a photography contest...there won’t be any prizes, but I hope that some will still decide to enter! :)
Anyway, the rules are simple. There are two categories, “Nature” and “People”. You may submit up to two photos to either or both categories. :) Photos should not be edited (although cropping is fine).
The deadline will be June 26th, 2009 after which the contest will close, and I will announce the 1st and 2nd places winners of each category shortly thereafter. You can email your entries to me at writertwin@gmail.com along with your first name (and your blog address will be welcome as well, but not required). If you would like to spread the word on your blog or elsewhere, I would appreciate it!
Thanks so much!! :D

Fun! I might enter. Does it matter when I took the pictures? I took some pictures a month or so ago I'd like to enter, but I'd thought I'd ask before entering them.

Thanks, Joanna! I'll look forward to your entries! :D

Hi Katie! It doesn't matter when you took the pictures just so long as you took them yourself. :D Hope you'll enter!
