So Many Views On "I Love You", Why????

Hi Everyone,

As some of you may already know, my Mom passed away this December and so I haven’t been around much for awhile. My photography has taken a backseat to helping my Dad, and myself, get through the toughest time of our lives.

That being said, I am at a total loss as to why my I Love You is pushing 8000 views! In or around November when I had looked there were probably somewhere around 2300 or 2400 views but I almost fell off my seat when popped in not long ago and saw the new numbers. The funny thing is, although the views seem to be climbing by over 100 a day, there are no new favoritings or comments so it leads me to believe they are views from outside of Redbubble somehow. I have not put this shot up anywhere else or linked it anywhere else.

Do any of you have any ideas…

"I Love You" Wins 1st Place - THANKS FOR THE VOTES!!!

Hi Everyone!

Thanks to all of you who have supported me on my time here at RB and most recent to all of those that have voted for I Love You in the Live, Live, Dream Group’s Passions challenge! It sure is a HUGE honour to win with 272 awesome entries…I still can’t believe it to tell you the truth!!

On top of that just two days ago missheels made me very happy by buying a copy of “I Love You” for a loved one. It means a lot to me to know that something I created is giving the gift of love to others and making them happy! Valentines Day shouldn’t be the only day we say those three magical words to someone, or at least I don’t believe so.

And what I really can’t believe either, is that this image has had 2248 views, 69 favouritings, and 137 com…

What is talent, do you have it, do I have it, is there such a thing as a talented photographer?

I recently read on someone’s profile something about how their talent was growing from being on the site and it got me to thinking about “talent”.

For many years now I have been thinking about talent and wondering if I would ever find mine. I am not musically gifted, I love to sing but have NO idea how to sing in key, I can’t draw even a stick figure straight, I suck at crafts, etc…. So, I thought about what I was good at, and all I could come up with is making people laugh and trying to make them happy. Again though, I don’t think thats a talent, its just my personality, right?

So what about photography, is that a talent? Anyone can learn to use a camera and take a picture, and the quality of a camera will make a difference in the quality of an image. …

Humbling

Have you ever heard the country song “It’s Hard to be Humble”? Well, I am finding it VERY difficult to be anything BUT on this website! I wonder if any of you have experienced the same feelings I have when roaming through this site.

I LOVE taking pictures and although I realize I am in no way, shape, or form a pro; I do think I have taken some pretty amazing pictures….or at least I DID until I started looking through redbubble. The level of artistry is amazing on here!!

I guess it is all a matter of perspective….I have never taken any classes, really have not much of an idea how to use the camera I have properly to get the best shot, and I am a complete amateur. So all in all, I take a pretty good shot! However, with the quality of art found on this site, it …
