I'm stoked. When you think you're pretty mediocre at something but someone says your pretty good, actually; it's very darn encouraging!
Thanks to everyone who voted, and if you want to play along, the first theme of this month is 'eyes shut..'
(edit) I'm all encouraged now and I do love to take photos, so I've just registered for EOS Photo5, an annual creative photography competition which all begins with a brown box. Inside there are 5 items that are separate photographic briefs to be incorporated or inspire your photos. Last year there were; umbrella, bubbles, crayon, tealight and ribbon (click to see last years finalists).
It sounds like heaps of fun, I'll let you know when it arrives! Can't wait to see what's in it!
