This was taken on the island of Burano, home to multi-colored houses, wine bars, and lots of reflections everywhere. (and, um, not to mention, boats galore.)
And, speaking of Burano, Italy and the like, I have gotten word today that I have placed first in the monthly competition from the Venice School of Photography. This first place showing comes complete with a gift certificate from Amazon.com. I'm very grateful and surprised (I didn't even vote for myself, frankly, I thought Helen should have taken the prize.) Since the nice folks at the school have given me this unexpected honor, I thought that I would share it with you, in my own little way, of course.
So, I've narrowed the selection down to a few choices and I'm asking you, my loyal (yeah, right, you click through like everybody else. Who am I kidding?) readers to vote for your favorite from the list. In keeping with the spirit of this blog (now there's a scary thought) I've narrowed your selections down to a few I thought fitting:
- "Venice: Camera Obscura" a recommended photo book on Venice
- James McMurtry's Childish Things since I yap about music so much
- More Compact Flash (self-explanatory really)
- A Nicolas Cage DVD(I'll just have to hope my TiVo/DVD player doesn't eat it before I have time to watch.)
So, there you have them. In true Chicago style voting, once again, I'm requesting that you all "vote early and vote often."
You can vote by posting comments here (yes, you can do it anonymously if you so choose) or emailing me by clicking here.
Until next vote...
