You might have seen my post a few weeks ago about what I would pack for a weekend away. That was my entry to Trek America’s search for their next blogger and to win a trip to America. Somehow I made it into the top ten finalists – I guess wittering on about how scared I would be to visit the moon worked!
Now I’m in the second round and we’re about to be cut down to just five bloggers. We were asked to take a photo of something red, white, and blue, in keeping with the all American theme.
It’s been all I could think about all week. Red, white, and blue was starting to creep into my dreams at night. I was spotting that colour combo in so many places I had never noticed before. I had a pretty busy week, what with end of term deadlines approaching, so I made sure to keep my camera on me for any possible chance to take a photo.
It took a lot of deliberating but I decided to go with this photo. It’s taken at the cinema I work at on campus and it was actually from the first set of photos I took. I thought you might want to see some of the others I took as well (I’m a little bit proud of some of them, I never really considered photography or any kind of artistic nature to be one of my strong points.
I really need your help. The judges will pick their top four favourites and another one will go through purely based on likes. I’m up against some established bloggers with 1000s of followers, and everyone’s photos truly are fantastic. I honestly said, “damn” when I opened up the album because the rest are so good.
If you could please give my photo a ‘like’ I’d be eternally grateful. Any photo you like will enter you into a draw to win an American goody bag. And as promised, here’s some of the photos that didn’t quite make it. Enjoy!
