Photo Contest

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 skin a cat, get a new camera lens, achieve your goals.

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!
