life | just try
hello, hello! well, i can be as pessimistic as anyone, but sometimes i push through the doubt and try, anyway. last june i saw a a posting about a photography contest by the local chamber of commerce, so i sent in some photos and forgot about it.
a couple of weeks ago, i found out that one of my photos was chosen as a winner along with photos from nine other people and will be featured on its website for the entire year. there's a reception next week and we will be presented with our framed photos, along with $50 (party!).
and then, on friday i took my vintage yashica film camera out to photograph the snow. when i got home, i noticed the battery cover the size of a dime was missing - major ugh! i figured it was within a 10 block radius, so i backtracked and kept thinking i'll never find it with all the shoveling, but i had a better chance if i try. i found it at block number nine! so, never give up, especially since it's the weekend!
ps the video for wreck your wheels by kim richey was made using photos submitted by fans. love it!
