Woot! Woot! David, whose blog “sanslartigue” I follow on a regular basis, has nominated this site, “Wabi Sabi” for a Lovely Blogger Award. David does an unexpected  mix of new photos with some from his picture-taking childhood for an always thought-provoking presentation. My favorites are what he does with buildings.  (David’s an architect. Go figure.)  I was particularly taken by his post on the Oregon State Hospital. I think you’ll enjoy as well.

Here’s how to find David. His blog is listed on my blogroll: sanslartigue. Click, transport and enjoy.

Now, here’s where my unfamiliarity with some fine points of  blogging  comes into play.  I’ve not conquered inserting  links into my posts and I didn’t want to wait  to thank David for the lovely honor, nor wait to nominate the next round of bloggers. 


Here is my list of nominees for the next round of Lovely Blogger awards. I am listing them here and you can click on their links through My Blogrolls. Most are photography-centered and most I have stumbled across through serendipity, though “Another Stir of the Spoon” is written by good friends and centers on good food, birding and books. I have eaten at their table many times and it is always a wonderful experience.

About me:  I am a photographer living in Green Bay, Wisconsin and no, I am not much of a football fan  but I will never turn down the chance to tailgate. Everything I’ve down in my professional life has involved telling stories: as a librarian, a teacher (both English and World History) and even in sales (used books.) I’ve published maybe 20 short stories/essays. My photography seems to be the natural result of all the things that have come before. A good writer doesn’t tell, he/she shows. With my pictures, I can distill that concept even farther and tell the story purely by showing. And, trust me: I love every minute of finding the pictures, taking the pictures, buffing and polishing them and then sharing them with others. I show my work through my personal Facebook page, some shows I’ve done with friends, this blog and I enter some pieces that I am exceptionally happy with into juried shows. (I’m going into two regional shows this month and I am really really really really pleased.)

 Lovely Blogger Rules:

1 –  Accept the Award. “Oh I do, yes I do!”

4 – Pass the Award to 7 other blogs providing links to their blogs. Did it!

5 – Contact your 7 bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this Award. “I’m on it”

    Congratulations on your award Patricia, it is always fantastic when someone else thinks your blog is worth an award, and having said that, thank you for nominating me as well. 🙂
