March Photo of the Month

by Kay~Kacey on 4/2/2008

Okay, here we go with some FABULOUS photos for the March Photo of the Month contest. I do not know how anyone is going to be able to pick just one of these. They are all fabulous. So, in no certain order, here we go.

Cheryl St. John

From Cheryl St. John. Is that not adorable, or what? And the lighting is across it? Love it. And the texture on the throw. Great shot. Cheryl is a writer too.

Kate at Country Girl

Kate from Chronicles of a Country Girl. The color (colorS) in this shot are fantastic. So many shades. I could take pictures like that if I had a macro lens… Maybe.

crazy daisy

From CrazyDaisy. The title of this photo is “The Last Snow?” Aren’t we all asking ourselves that question? Great winter shot.

Happy Wonderer

From Ellen at Happy Wonderer. Look at that! Okay, I’m a bit afraid of heights, so I don’t think I could have gotten this shot, but it is wonderful! The color, the composition. Makes me want to go drive up that coast.


From Jeannelle at Midlife by Farmlight. Title “A Branched Steeple” I love how the steeple contrasts with the barren winter trees, as well as the hint of light bouncing off the steeple. (as an aside, I love the photo she has up for her header photo on her blog right now!)


From Mary at Little Red House. Title “Pink”. The lighting on this one is wonderful! And the flower is pink. Extra points for pink. :mrgreen: This is a straight out of the camera shot!!


From Melissa. Title “Joyful” Melissa is a writer friend of mine. This is one of those photos you’d keep forever and remember forever. Do they not look like they are having the best time? Does that photo not just scream LOVE? Don’t you just want to be there with them? Melissa just got a new camera so I’m expecting a lot of photos on her blog now.

Mental Pause Mama

This is from Mental Pause Mama. I want to be in this photo too. I love the drink with the beach in the background. Such a great way to capture a fun vacation. (why didn’t she invite us to go along?)

deer in morning light

Here is mine. I know you were hoping I’d pick the one where I was falling on my rear shooting the easter eggs, but no such luck. I considered the shot of SuperGuy’s butt when he was washing the car. I think that’s my favorite this month. I’m such a shallow person. But I settled on this “Deer in the Morning Light.”

Thanks to all who participated!

Okay, vote here. Good luck. It’s going to be really REALLY hard to pick just one! Remember, this is an important contest! Send all your friends over to vote for your photo. You’re going to get really famous from this contest! Honest, have I ever lied to you? :wink:

What great pics!

Amy Walton April 2, 2008 at 6:57 am

Awesome pics, Kacey!

I was torn between several, but finally had to make myself settle. Alas, I would have spent more time arguing with myself.

Tori Lennox April 2, 2008 at 8:49 am

The pictures are great!!!

Suzanne April 2, 2008 at 9:26 am

I love ALL of those photos!

Cheryl St.John April 2, 2008 at 9:43 am

Oh, my, these are incredible.

Christine April 2, 2008 at 10:26 am

Amazing!! Very very hard decision! :cool2:

Melissa Marsh April 2, 2008 at 10:27 am

Wow. These are some great shots! Ok, I’m not going to vote for mine ‘cuz, well, I’d feel bad about doing that! But trying to pick another one of hthe others will be hard because I love them all!

Crazy Daisy April 2, 2008 at 12:41 pm

WOW! So many. I’ll also skip over mine and try to decide which other one to pick! They are all great!

Misty Dawn April 2, 2008 at 6:44 pm

You’re right – these are AWESOME! Oh, I can’t wait to see flowers blooming again *sigh*

Kate April 2, 2008 at 7:52 pm

I love Mary’s “pink”. It’s incredible! I love them all. This will be difficult.

Kacey April 2, 2008 at 9:29 pm

weren’t these pictures just wonderful this month? I mean, it’s almost impossible to choose just one!

Country Girl April 3, 2008 at 10:01 am

I’m concerned about something. I thought it would be cool to get people interested and get lots of votes. So I posted for people to come to your site and vote. I told them I didn’t need them voting for my picture, and didn’t care who they voted for but just wanted to drum up interest in this photo contest post. I think it’s interesting and we can get more people who are interested in photography to enter. Unfortunately, I’m afraid they’ve been voting for mine. And I feel as if I have given myself an unfair advantage.

Or maybe I’m just being silly.

Jenna April 3, 2008 at 10:16 am

Great pictures! I have to say “Pink” is my favorite! :mrgreen:

Kacey April 3, 2008 at 3:54 pm

Kate, you’re just being silly … :mrgreen: Hey anyone could have left a link on their blog. Alls fair in this race for fame and fortune!! Great fame and fortune! :grin:

Kate April 3, 2008 at 10:25 pm

Kacey, where did you get the html for the voting? Do you think blogger would support it? I think it’s really cool and I’d like to do something with it.
Right now, with my dial-up (don’t say it, I know) I can’t use the voting that blogger offers. And I can’t open people’s sites that have it embedded. It keeps taking me to a google search page. But this works in my dial-up and I have no problem with it. Any thoughts?

Kacey April 3, 2008 at 10:52 pm

This is a Wordpress Plugin Kate, called wp-polls, so it wouldn’t work on Blogger. We could talk you into switching to a Wordpress blog though to show off your pretty pictures! :mrgreen:

Man, dial up. I feel for you. Drives me nuts when I have to use dial up.

Elizabeth April 3, 2008 at 11:23 pm

Amazing photos! I’m feeling very inspired!

Lucky Lou April 4, 2008 at 9:51 pm

Suggest voting in categories: people, buildings, nature (sub-categories: animals, flowers, landscape). since I would like to see ALL recognized- great artistic talents.
JOYFUL got my vote because I adore red-heads, this celebrates generational FUN, plus the lady looks like someone I’d like to be around. :idea:

Lucky Lou April 4, 2008 at 10:02 pm

my niece would vote for the martini glass; I’m partial to ANY water (ocean,sea,lake, creek,waterfall,pond,etc), see deer frequently in our snowy woods, am attracted to color, especially purple and pink, adore sleeping children (over awake misbehaving ones! ROFL) and am a fan of architecture, churches and trees. so you shutter-bugs hit ALL my favorites!

ellen b April 7, 2008 at 1:45 pm

I’m so pleased my photo made it into the mix. I wasn’t that close to the edge so I think you could have been ok up there. All the photos here are great. If I could have made it up that far without spilling it I would have put a martini in the photo too :)
