Something Different: Versatile Blogger Award

Yesterday and actually a short time ago I came across something that was a bit of a surprise. Actually it was a big surprise. I had been nominated for The Versatile Blogger Award! Being new to the Blog world I didn’t know what I was supposed to do after being nominated. But now I do. So here goes…

First, I would like to thank Teri from Images by T. Dashfield and Steve from Steve Allen Photography for nominating me. Both of whom write about a variety of topics are quite humorous and a joy to read. Indeed I am humbled.

Second, I am supposed to list seven things about me.

We have two lively Terriers to share our lives with. The male Terrier is the girl terrier’s uncle. We call them our puppies, although they are several years past that stage. I love them to pieces.

One of my favorite foods is Lasagna…I could eat the whole casserole.

I love boats…especially wooden boats. Small or large it doesn’t matter.

Our jerk next door neighbors moved this weekend!!!!!! YAY YIPPEE YA HOO. And we met the new neighbors and they are great. YABBA-DABBA-DOO!

I love the change of seasons.

Inclement weather is my thing. Heard it said once that there is no such thing as bad weather…it’s just bad clothing.

Even though GPS is in both vehicles and on the cell phones, I still prefer to do things the old way with map and compass. Because I am obsessed with maps.

And third, I have to nominate other bloggers for this award. So in no particular order, here goes…

    Congratulations David and most importantly congratulations on your neighbor change 😉

    and thank you for remembering my blog in your list although you can’t take the easy way out and nominate everyone..aren’t you supposed to just pick one ? (j/k)

    while the versatile blogger and its rules sounds fun it got me thinking about a similar theme, a sort of Q&A style interview on what, why,inspirations, aspirations that each of us have regarding our photography. I read those in magazines and find them fascinating. While I am still new and getting to know a lot of people here, it will be fun to know more about each other on why we photograph what we photograph. thoughts ?

      Thanks Abu! Ya know…I think that is a great idea…I really enjoy reading about what inspires others. The creative process is different for us all and I love to learn from others. I bet quite a few of us would participate in this. I know I would.

    David, congratulations! It’s well deserved. I learn something from each of your posts that helps me with my own photography. And thank you for nominating me, too. I’m honored but not at all sure I’ve earned it!
