Photo: me and lion

So close, yet so far!

Tonight at photography club, we had the finals for our digital competitions. This is where every photo that has won a seal (in the digital competitions!) are judged (in their classes) again for the best overall photo. I got 3 seals this year, and all were for digital photos.

And out of... 25 photos maybe? (possibly more) in the primary class, the judge held back 8 photos that were his favourites, to pick from. AND... I didn't win.

But - out of the 8 photos, two of them were mine! And he made really good comments about both of them too, so that makes me happy. It's a shame not to have won overall of course, but being selected as a top photo (twice!) is pretty nice at least.

The photos were:
Crossing Roundabouts
and
Lion Resting In Tree

He said that the Crossing Roundabouts one was different to what you usually see in clubs, and that I'm developing my own style. Heh.
NCIS: Tony leaning on Gibbs

(no subject)

GIP.

Because there are some new NCIS photos out of Mark Harmon and Michael Weatherly and they are just adorable.

And I also find it really hard to delete any of my icons when I want to make room for a new one!

Eugh, my reading speed got terrible for the second half of the year. Mostly coz of having to spend my free time revising. Rubbish!

I'm currently 200 pages into a 1009 page book... me thinks it may take a while to read it! lol
