 Well this has been a difficult week, it seems a lot of you are "Twisted", which is a good thing. As I made my way around I copied and pasted the ones that caught my eye into notepad. I thought this would aid me in having it all at hand when the time came to select. Well it did and didn't, as I found I had much more than 20 entries at the end. I then had to sort through and agonize over who would not be on this weeks list, and let me tell you that was hard. So here are my results for the 2nd week of this competition, and please those of you that didnt make it to the written portion you see there is a good chance you made it to my notepad, an excellent job everyone.

The following are the Top Ten Honorable Mentions
(in no particular order)

  19. Such great entries. Congratulations to the Top Ten and to the Honorable Mentions. There are several in the honorable mentions that captured my soul and stirred such good feelings within that I wish I could have voted for them.

    Each vision of beauty that we feast our eyes upon touches each of us differently and that's what makes this so fun and interesting to try and find and see the beauty from another's point of view, to recognize the soul stirring emotions brought forth and stirred by memories of life as we have experienced it thus far.

    There is beauty in each photo, there is history in each photo, and there is a special reason that each and every one of us choose what we choose...my joy comes from not only looking upon the beauty, but trying to feel the emotion that stirred within you to take the picture you have taken. I love it when you post your reason or feelings behind yoru photo.

  38. It's an indication of the greatness of the theme and the quality of the entries when we get such a close poll as we have today. I told Gator last night it was going to be this way. You've all done such a great job it was an incredibly tough job to choose just ten and now you all get to see just how hard it is....you only get to vote for one each. Good luck with that!!!

    ReplyDelete

  49. Thanks so much for including my photo in the Top Ten - what a shock!!! I'm sorry I haven't responded sooner, but my 3-year-old grandson has pneumonia and I spent all last night in the emergency room with him and my daughter. My photo is among some really terrific entries - congratulations to the nominees - your photos are well-deserving of this honor. Congrats also to the Honorable Mentions. I feel that any one of yours could very easily be a part of the Top Ten. I'm sure that the administrators had a very hard decision to make.

    Best of luck to you all.
