I suffer from viewfinder vision (find myself visualising a frame around everything I see) so my genre is “anything that moves and...

I have been remiss ...

The wonderful John Conway just posted a journal reminding us of the “highest compliment” people pay by purchasing our work … and by taking time to visit, comment and favourite.

I must confess to being most appreciative of many card sales over the past few months, but failing to publicly thank those anonymous encouragers who have chosen my images. The latest set of eight cards sold yesterday was fascinating … someone must have a foot fetish!! All of them feature shoes or legs/feet. How fascinating! I would love to know how these are going to be used. :+) So thank you to all who have purchased, who have encouraged, who have offered suggestions and those who have complimented… all hugely appreciated.

Also, over the past few months, I have entered a couple of country competitions (and also encouraged my granddaughters Meg, 14yrs, and Zoe, 11yrs, to do the same) … with fantastic results. At the Cootamundra Show, Meg’s images earned her some great placings as well as Child Champion, and Child Reserve Champion. Zoe received some firsts, seconds and commendeds as well. While my images also received some awards, the icing on the cake was the totally unexpected Show Champion ribbon for Kate’s Cottage. (I’m suspecting our family may be banned from entering next year!)

At the Young Cherry Blossom Festival last month Zoe blitzed the under 12s taking first, second and a highly commended. I was surprised to also receive a few tropies in this one as the competition was fierce and entries totalled about 750! It was good to get out and test some images in the ‘real world’. It is totally different to displaying online.

So my appreciation to all who support — who validate my work, and that of many others, by purchasing, commenting, visiting, and favouriting. May all YOUR digi-dreams come true as a reward!!
