blowing my own horn

you might know
 i am addicted 
to
 photography
 especially 
iphoneography

 i am also
 addicted
 to
 instagram

my photos
 both iPhone and Big camera
 have
 been
 'honored' 
by various groups
 as part
 of
 theme grids
 several times
 one of my edits 
was
 even part
 of the opening sequence
 at
 Rhonna
(rhdesign app)
 and
 a group called
 eye_catching_photos
featured
 one 
under the canopy
 shot

all these things
 make me
 want to try harder
 be better

 last night
 i came up from the subway
 it was still light out 
so i snapped a photo to post on instagram

 i opened the app
 there was this red dot
on 
my profile page

i was selected
'midday splash featured artist'

 i stopped walking

 i stood
 on
 broadway 
grinning like a fool

 its a photo
 i took this past saturday
 in the dreary fog

 it wasn't a great photo

i played with it

 i turned it all grey

 highlighting
 the red barge in the background
 color splash
 there's a photo group for it

 there's an app for it



 this is the photo

 i am tickled
 to be
 acknowledged 
by
 my peers

especially
 since 
that
 was
my very first try at color splash
an auspicious beginning

 so thanks for letting me crow a bit

  1. Your amazing NYC pics drew me in from my first days in the Blog-o-sphere and I'm still enjoying them very much. They are part of my day.

    Getting to know you is a less quantifiable boon. Cherished.
