So...I need a new lens for my camera. It's just a little one, but super functional. Great in low lighting. Fast shutter speed. And good for those depth of field shots where the background is all blurry. I LOVE those! Unfortunately my little lens keeps getting bumped to the bottom of our wants/needs list. (...something about a Florida vacation, and instrument rentals, and baseball registration...blah...)
But I'm a resourceful girl...and I know that there are many ways to
If you've been hanging around here much, you've probably noticed that I have a new little widget over on my sidebar that says "VOTE FOR ME" (I don't know why there are two, but when I try to delete one, both go away, so...there are two.)
I happen to be a regular reader of the Herald Journal, the local newspaper in Logan, UT. A couple of months ago, I noticed an announcement for a photography contest. I read all the contest rules and there was nothing requiring entrants to be Cache Valley residents. Only the picture had to be of the Valley, and I happen to have oodles of them AND they're pretty darn fantastic. So I entered. I took this picture last November when we were in Utah for Thanksgiving.
And guess what the prize is!? A $250 gift card to a camera store in Logan. Well, that's convenient isn't it? Just enough to buy that little lens! Fortunately I still have people in Logan who would be happy to pop over to that camera store and scoop up my lens for me if I win the gift card. See...I've thought of everything.
But what I need now are votes. So, if you have nothing to do over the next ten days, I would SUPER LOVE it if you would click on that box over there and login to the voter page and VOTE for my Mendon barn picture. You can vote once a day until August 4th!
Thanks so much for being my bloggy friends. Winners will be announced on August 11th. Keep your fingers crossed!
