Summer 2009 Photo Contest

It's that time again! Photo contest time from Write From Karen! This photo contest theme is: THEME: SUMMER / SWIMMING / VACATION / PARK / PICNIC / OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES / BBQ / FIREWORKS / WATER SPORTS. Show us your favorite summer photograph! But wait, it doesn’t HAVE to be a summer photograph. It can something that represents summer to you in your part of the world.

I've gone over and over and over my photos and I think I've finally picked the one. It's been years since I've had a flower garden so I was thrilled to see some coming up in front of our house this summer (for those of you that don't know we recently moved). I grew up with having flowers during the summer months and have missed them so much. I've enjoyed all of these flowers so much that I took a lot of pictures of them so that I could always enjoy them once they were gone. I found out that taking pictures of flowers at night makes them look even more beautiful! For the first time I'm entering a photo not of my son (for which he was a little bit upset about) but of a summer flower. So without further ado here is my photo for the contest:

Voting begins at 5:00 p.m. U.S. central time July 18th to 11:00 a.m. U.S. central time July 22nd. I will add the link to the voting in a separate post and will have it as a sticky note at the top so that you all can come back and vote for me!

grr. I always think I have a chance to win and then you enter at the last minute and your photos are always better than mine!

Oh, well, if I can't win the contest, I'd rather it be you! =D

Good luck!
