“Take a Seat”, a photo shot by Emma back in 2008 had a double feature this week in both the “A Place Called Home” and “Country Bumpkin” groups! It recently was named in the Top 10 in a challenge with another group and got some visibility on www.Redbubble.com, stirring a renewed interest.
This photo was one of 4 finalists for Country Magazine’s Photo of the Year in 2008. My daughter (who was at the ripe old age of 10 at the time) had been shooting since age 6, but this achievement encouraged her to start competing with adults and she’s been doing it ever since.
Redbubble has been an amazing experience for our family of photographers, but especially for my daughter who thrives on feedback (negative along with the positive) and of course competition.
Thanks to all those group hosts that hold competitions and feature art regularly. It really does inspire!
