I've been selected to compete in a People's Choice competion along with the 10 finalists in the "This is Canada Photo Contest." I was chosen as one of 4 honourable mentions that will go up against the finalists. Please "like" my photo to count as a vote for me.
A few weeks ago I decided to enter the Twit Photo Guest Quest contest. Basically, listeners of the podcast were invited to submit photos for a chance to be on the show. I wasn't so excited about actually being on the show so much as having an amazing group of judges potentially looking at my photographs. The judges were, Frank Doorhof, Art Wolfe, Tamara Lackey, Colby Brown and Zack Arias. This is an amazing group of photographers.
Late last week I found out I was a finalist. I wasn't quite sure what that meant. I'll admit that I was pretty excited. As it turns out there were hundreds of entries. Was that a hundred, or many hundreds? Either way I found out today that I ended up finishing in the top 20. I'm listed in a group of 10 folks after the winning top 10. A part of me figured I had a shot, and a part of me thought that there was no way I'd even get noticed. I'm extremely happy to have been acknowledged by the judges listed above.
Here is the post by Catherine Hall announcing the winners.

I was travelling this week and I'll be travelling next week. I love it. I'm going to be exposed to some amazing subjects next week. I hope to serve them well in this space over the coming weeks. Stay tuned.
Tonight I happened upon a tweet by Landon Miller asking about desktops for dual monitors. I figured that this was a worthy challenge. I did find it difficult to find images that would be pleasing with an extremely wide crop. After a hacking a few beyond recognition I ended up with three that seemed suited to the task. If you're the type of person with a minimum amount of files and icons on the desktop I imagine any of these will work nicely. If you need to have "room" to place icons and such "Shore to shore" is a good choice. Enjoy.
I went on the assumption of two 1920 x 1200 displays for an image size of 3840 x 1200.
Please feel free to download and use these images as desktop wallpaper. If you'd like an image for another use, or maybe for your wall, I'd ask that you follow the links below or contact me for further information.
A stroll through Fort George Park on the weekend. There was great light and the weather was beautiful.
