A feeling of excitement

I never really expected to win anything at the Hagaman art show this weekend. I didn't even really have much time to spend there, what with teaching all day Saturday, Mama's party, Church, etc. But having own this award was so very exciting to experience. It serves as a confirmation to me that maybe I really can do this photography thing. It's the same feeling I get when I write a good poem or song, but different in the sense that I am pouring myself into a different kind of medium. I still feel somewhat amazed and undeserving, especially after seeing the sheer amount of talent at the show and what was produced by other artists. All I can say is the confirmation feels so good and I hope I get the chance to experience it again. Strangely enough, this photograph was taken at a time when I was feeling a little lost and unsure, and now it is a source of elation and confidence.

Congrats. A well-deserved award. I am like the plumber with no water. I have only entered photo contests two times in 20 years (I won, too).

I don't have one of my photos framed. They are all stored in folders in my computer. That is pretty sad. Maybe you have inspired me.

Hi there,

According to your "About Me" page you're a Narnia fan! That's awesome because, on my blog, I'm giving away three free copies of a new book that I think us Narnia fans are going to love. It's called Curse of the Spider King, by best-selling author Wayne Thomas Batson and Christopher Hopper. If you're interested, Click here to check it out!
