Certificate of Achievement

DaGoddess @ 05:24

Betcha didn’t know I’m getting a Certificate of Achievement for photography. You didn’t know, did you? Guess what? I didn’t know either until I got the email the other day. I’m not sure why I’m getting it. Well, beyond the fact that I’ve entered prints in a competition for the past three years. Last year, I got “nominated” and didn’t even know it until about three weeks ago. Maybe that’s what the certificate is for? The image? Ghost Rider. None of my other past entries were nominated or even have any sort of indication that someone saw them.

Here’s this year’s entry.

Polly O'Keary

“Polly” may not look like much as far artistry goes, but I loved the series of photos that I layered into that final image. First, she’s a fantastic bassist. Second, she reminds me so much of my daughter. Third, she was my last year’s girl crush. If you saw her perform, you’d understand why. Anyhow, that’s this year’s entry. Best part of last year’s and this year’s entries? Both were free. Because I’d been entered previously, I got entry fee credits. If I’d wanted to enter more, of course I’d have to cough up the dough. But I only had that one image to submit (although I did consider my Tab Benoit photo, too). I have a budget, y’all, and I’m sticking with it! So, one entry this year. I think I feel better that way as well.

Now that I’ve boreditized you with my self-induced scapula bruising post, I shall leave you atonce and go get my ass in bed.

Do you think anyone offers certificates of achievement for going to bed before sunrise? Maybe? Possibly? Anyone wanna make one for me?

  2. Very nice sense of movement and fun here. I can understand the girl-crush.

  3. I never cross streams, Pam. Too many crazies anymore.

    Jan, she IS in Washington.
