OMG! {as in, oh my goodness!}

summer day at the beach

i'm uber excited... like a kid in a candy store...
that shutter sisters chose my photo
for the one word project daily post!
i took one of my florida umbrellas series shots
and "vintagized" it like i did
on this one for effect.
then i entered the photo
at the o.w.p. flickr photo pool
on a whim for the july one word contest.

~ ~ ~

thank you so much, shutter sisters!
i am honored, and i am so happy
that i went ahead and entered.
you don't know what that does
for my morale, as well as my
confidence in taking pictures
and playing with pictures.
i feel especially honored to be picked
after seeing many of the wonderful
entries yesterday on flickr.
~ ~ ~

have you ever entered?
if not, you should!
you just never know!
