Recently I received two awards for my blog, and I was so happy to receive them though humbled as they both took me by surprise. My thoughts on responding to awards have evolved – that is, whilst I find it difficult to nominate a certain number of blogs, I do enjoy connecting people to ‘posts’ that have influenced or inspired me recently.
Paris at my doorstep nominated me for the Sunshine Award. Rebecca is a US expat living in the City of Light, Paris. Her blog is full of wonderful musings, photos of moments she’s taken in Europe, and book reviews – all mixed in with a bit of fun, like this: Tilt Shift Paris
scottseyephotos nominated me for the Kreativ Blogger Award. I discovered Scott’s blog way back in November 2011 – seems so long ago – when I first started blogging. He was kind enough to share one of his images with me, per request, for my very first inspiration series. It really is nice to connect with such kind people through the blogosphere. Spot his shot here: A Bolt of Inspiration
I’m an avid follower of both blogs and would like to share some of that sunshine I’ve found through other posts, as inspired by the Sunshine Award, as well as wildlife & landscape photography, as inspired by the Kreativ Blogger Award (Scott’s blog has great wildlife and landscape shots. Hence, the dedication).
I pass these awards on to the following blogs, and I hope you may enjoy their posts. Thanks again, and happy long weekend (for those in US and Canada)!
