11.30.11 ~ 334/365

30 Nov

During this past year, there was a contest for photographers at the Jersey Shore- the newspaper was looking to put together a hardcover book featuring the best of the Jersey Shore. In order to get photographs to fill their book with, they set up a website where individuals could set up an account and upload pictures taken in and around the shore areas. To ensure that pictures were truly the “best of the best” a cap of 20 pictures per 14 day was placed, and they also had a voting system set up where anyone could go and vote or comment on the photos.

A few weeks ago, I was notified that one of my pictures was chosen out of over 34,000 submitted to be published in the book! Needless to say, I was ecstatic, and quickly ordered two books. Unfortunately, you were not told which photos were to be published, so the wait was agonizing.

Finally, today, after weeks of waiting, the books arrived in the mail, and I am stoked to say that not one, but four of my pictures were published!

Here’s the book:

Two of my pictures are on this page- the large one at the top (it’s two ferris wheels from Seaside, NJ), and the bottom right photo, also of a ride in Seaside.

This page has my macro picture of a water droplet on a purple lily.

And this page has my picture of a flamingo.
