I have decided to give an award to my favourite blogging photographers. When I first started blogging and looking at Blogs it was the excellence of people’s photos that attracted me. Nowadays I am equally interested in the writing but every now and then a particular photo reminds me how many brilliantly talented amateurs there are out there.
The recipient is welcome to display it on their blog but is equally welcome not to do so. There is no passing on or writing deep secrets necessary. It is simply an acknowledgement from me of how much I have appreciated the person’s photographs.
I have decided to give the award to one person every Sunday until I run out of folk to give it to. So this is my first awarding of the Photographic Excellence Award.
I decided that each time I made the award I would direct readers to a particular photo that captured my attention. Gosh, I hadn’t anticipated how hard it would be to choose just one. In the end I chose this one for Jen but really I would simply recommend a trip back through Jennifer Photography to get an idea of the breadth and depth of her skill at finding subjects and capturing atmosphere. Thank you, Jen, for all the enjoyment you have given me.
Thanks for stopping by! Would you like a cup of tea or coffee? And please, sit for a spell. If you enjoy my posts, please feel free to follow me or subscribe to my blog. This is a word verification free, family friendly blog, so everything I share here is for all ages. I am a happily married man in my late sixties who lives on the Wirral peninsula, near Liverpool, in the UK.
I'm a blogger - and nowadays that seems to be my main occupation. Rambles from My Chair is my main blog. I’m a retired local government executive - now studying how to survive a neurological disorder that gives me various problems but, hopefully, a whole new outlook on life and an increased sense of humour and perspective. There is a saying in Sweden "man måste vara frisk för att orka vara sjuk" ~ "you have to be well to cope with being ill"....
I enjoy most forms of communication and postcards are a special favourite. I used to blog as Scriptor Senex which is Latin for Old Writer but now Google only lets me post as John Edwards.
