By some miracle, a photo I submitted to a WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge with the theme of Off-Season was chosen… (drum, drum, drum) as one of four “favorites” by Krista from WordPress. And there were over 500 responses!
Incredibly, my photo was also chosen as the banner photo for the post. Wow!
I’m still not quite comprehending this. It feels great to be chosen! I also appreciated Krista’s lovely comments about my photo.
This has been a nice confidence booster and another nudge to continue raising my bar.
And the pics that weren’t
Hitoshi and I entered photos for the local Japanese Consulate’s photo contest. The purpose was to find great photos to be used in future advertising for getting people connected to Japan.
The theme for this second year was “My Encounter with Japan”. I wasn’t sure how to interpret this.
While our photos were not chosen, I’ve got a better idea of what they are looking for. We’ll try again next year!
Power lines are an ever-present part of Japan and fill me with nostalgia. I took this photo on the way back to my in-laws’ home in Ibaraki Prefecture in August 2012. We were returning from a road trip to a very quiet Fukushima.
The photo contest said that photos could be taken from anywhere in the world. How would you interpret “Encounter with Japan”?
