The results from the “Favorite Photo and Background Story” Photo Blog Project are in and the results should keep you entertained for sometime.
Since initiating the project on May 14th I’ve been introduced, and in some cases re-introduced, to some great photographers. The subject material, photographic styles and skill levels of those submitting may vary, but the one constant shared by all is a passion to capture and share the world as they see it.
Reading the stories behind each photographer’s favorite image has not only been entertaining for me, but inspiring. It’s been a great experience to glimpse behind the scenes of each image and share a sliver of the charge of enthusiasm held by each photographer. To those that submitted thanks for taking the time to participate and share not just your photo, but a piece of your artistic soul.
