Whizz…. BANG! Whizz….Whizz…. BANG! BOOM! Fizzle……. Pardon me. I am just shooting off a few fireworks in my back garden. Whizz…… BANG! POW! Fizzle… I know it’s not New Years yet but I just had to CELEBRATE! Wow! What a couple of weeks I have had. Besides all the great chatting we all have had, I want to share with you what my life on RB has been like lately. Whizzz…POP! Hey honey, that nearly went in my ear. Just hold it a moment. Let’s all have some hot chocolate. Anyway let me tell you… where to start first?
I guess TopTens. “With Frosting On Top” placed 2nd in the Frozen Leaves challenge in the Falling Leaves group, “The Bells of St. Mary’s” placed 2nd as well in the Church Bells challenge in the Historic Churches group, “Old Barn” placed 10th in the Barn challenge in the Country Bumpkin group, “Autumn’s Water Fall in Red” placed 5th in the An English Autumn challenge in the This Is England group, as well as placing 1st in the Waterfall group Buyer’s Only challenge in which everyone who enters the challenge has to promise to buy a card of the winning photo (which as it turns out is mine). On top of this, I have also placed 1st in the Stained Glass challenge in the Window’s and Doors group with my photo “Morning Light.” That is six top ten spots. _Whew! Now I need to get my breath before I continue…….. OK!
Features “Walking Reflection” was featured in the Reflectivity group, “Greeting the Morning” was featured in the group Light up My Life, “Fence lines, Farms, and Furrows” was featured in the group Rural Around The Globe, “The Evening Gathering” was featured in the group Light In The Darkness, “Winter’s Coming” was featured in both the group A Photographer’s Craft and in the group ImageWriting, “"Eclipsed"” was featured in the group Lost in Space [75% Negative Space], and “Don’t Lose The True Meaning…” was featured in the group Statues and Such. As well as all these new features, “Frozen” was re-featured in the group Dilapidated Buildings, and has asked me to fill in an interview because they have featured me as a member in the group. I am really excited abut that as it is the first time I have been a featured member.
Oh, I almost forgot! Many of you know this already from my other most recent journal, but I will tell it again. “With Frosting On Top” was featured on the Home Page following the results of the Frozen Leaf challenge in the Falling Leaves group. That brings my featured toatal to an even 50- another milestone!
My wife is bringing the hot chocolate out now, so time for one last little, tiny, ever-so-small piece of news….. I have reach and surpassed my 10,000 views (Sorry about the title of this journal entry. (For the the Proclaimers purists here in England, I changed the numbers from the song to fit my viewings number) Whoppee!!!! Whizzz… BANG! Whizzz… whizzz….whizzz… BANG! POP! BANG! BOOM! crackle… crackle It is actually up to 10,281 viewings of my works. A gigantic, enormous THANK YOU to you all my friends out there. I brings a real tear to my eyes that you have accepted me as a respected artist like all of you. I am more truly honoured by that than any of the other stuff I have shared with you today. BIG HUGS and HIGH FIVES to everyone. I will place all the photos mentioned below so you can have a look. Now I must get back to my fireworks. Thanks again. Let’s light the BIG one sweetheart. Whizzzzzzz.. oops… I don’t think it was suppose to go in the greenhouse…..OHHHH! Pretty! Call the Fire Department Honey. Speed dial 6! Ask for Tom! Wow Beautiful.
