Today I set up my Gizfolio. That is the account that I won from the Gizfolio and FuelMyBlog Photo Contest. I went through my photos and figured out which ones I wanted to feature, I could only choose 16, which is actually a good thing because that makes the Gizfolio look really professional. I love the interface of Gizfolio. No only can I control what the final images will look like I can also create the thumbnails to look the way I want them rather than have a computer program do it for me. So now I am going to see what people think about the Gizfolio and see if I get any hits for freelance jobs. Check out my Gizfolio and let me know what you think.
(on soapbox) I have to get this one off my chest. what is wrong with people. I just learned about a cat that had its eyes spray painted shut. Spray Painted Shut! What the hell kind of person does that. Two things that really turn my stomach are child abuse and animal cruelty. There really is no punishment too high for people who commit those heinous acts. Makes me incredibly sick to hear these things. Here is a link to the story with video. Makes me so mad.(off soapbox)
On to happier news, today was a nice day. Allison and her mom had a good time out shopping while I worked from home. After work I went out to get a few shots of the sunflowers to see how they are progressing. The one that I took the other day that I thought looked a little like a rose is some sort of Red sunflower. Both my sister and I were amazed to see it. You see the flowers that were planted were just planted, not really planned. Tara has asked me to keep the photos that I have been taking so she can show her bio class students the progress. I’m more than willing to take a ton of pictures. she certainly asked the right guy. While we were outside we heard two cats fighting. And today’s photo is of one of those cats. Isn’t she beautiful. What amazing markings on her face.
While I was taking photos, I got some for Macro Monday and one that Stephen the Dog asked me for and that was a chainsaw. I’m not sure why Stephen wants to see trees cut down but he requested a chainsaw and it was something interesting to macro shoot.
The Contest is still going very strong. Lisa jumped into the lead with two big wins, she won the Add It Up Photo Contest and she got the most people to vote for me at FuelMyBlog. Lisa is now 95 points higher than Mo and being closely followed in third by Christine. Last night I added another way to get more points. I’m doing another contest in September and am looking for help in promoting it. 100 points to anyone in the game for posting about the September XShot contest. And I’m giving away 10 points to each contestant for a comment on these posts. So far we have Mo, Lisa, and Christine who have written posts about the contest.
Well, Allison is having a shower tonight and I’m headed out to the movies, If you were looking for Flower photos, you are going to have to wait till either tomorrow or Sunday as I ran out of time to get them all processed.
