The ego has landed
You may remember this photograph from this post back in September. It was such a magical golden autumn day, and I took many photographs. I really loved this one, and I had many lovely comments about it.
Well, I entered it into a photography competition run by a Scottish public body, looking for Autumn pictures, and I received an email yesterday telling me it had been shortlisted for the final! The winner will be chosen by the public in an online poll.
But - what to do? Do I pass on the link to everyone on all my online haunts and ask them to vote for me? I could ask my family to gather together their facebook friends, work colleagues and all, to vote en masse for my little bark boat.
It doesn't seem right to do that, even though my ego is screaming 'GO FOR IT!' and telling me I am a fool for putting myself at such a disadvantage.
I am so delighted and astounded that my picture has been chosen - especially when it has such happy memories for me. I feel as if I have won already - the prize is really a nominal one.
So I won't pass on the link, but I will appease my ego by showing off the photograph again.
And it makes a pleasant change from all the snow.:)
