blowing my own horn

you might know
 i am addicted 

 i am also

my photos
 both iPhone and Big camera
by various groups
 as part
 theme grids
 several times
 one of my edits 
 even part
 of the opening sequence
(rhdesign app)
 a group called
under the canopy

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
my profile page

i was selected
'midday splash featured artist'

 i stopped walking

 i stood
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

 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
 my peers

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.
