Shameless plug . . vote for me.?!.

I was surfing through one of my favorite sites, Shutter Sisters, and in the "Daily Click" section, I was pleasantly surprised (or not) to see a picture of me on there. (gasp.) Thankfully I'm not all that in focus and what's really funny is that I took this one morning when I hadn't showered and didn't have an ounce of makeup on (you can't see my face so that doesn't really matter, I guess) and I was just sitting on my back patio as the kids played on the swings. I tend to find myself doing this quite often -- just sitting, looking, trying to find something to shoot a picture of. And this time, I looked into the sliding glass door and saw myself in it, so I shot what I was looking at. (It's fun shooting reflections, whatever it may be.) It was as simple as that, really. I posted it to my flickr, and low and behold, it made it onto a website unknowningly. (If you were sitting here, you'd hear a teeny squeal of delight coming from me..)

Anyway, it's not usually that big of a deal except this time, the photo with the most comments from the Daily Click get put into a book. Yes, a book! Not that I want a picture of me in the book, but to have a picture that I took in a book is pretty snazzy. So go comment away. Please! And if you do comment (there and here - so I know you did, please), and I recognize you, I think I might put your name in a hat and draw one. (Yes! Great idea, Val!) If you get chosen, you get a free Shutter Sisters Photography book! :) Maybe the contest part will get you to comment. That's all it takes. A comment, both here and there. (like all my linkage?) But please, please be nice :)

{ Oh, and please don't say how wonderful I am or whatever (not that I'm not, hehe), but just say that you like that picture best and just comment once please. Merci :) }
