We have a WINNER: August 2012's FREE PHOTO CONTEST: theme: Seats:Anything to sit on!

Again, the Judges have spoken!
(They would have spoken a LOT sooner if I had gotten them
the photos on time!) My bad!
August's FREE PHOTO CONTEST theme was:
"Seats: Anything you can sit on!"
due to my confusing directions and late annoucement of that theme,
we only got three entries.
But, they were great. All of them different and unique.
And the Judges liked them all for different reasons...
One, for its perspective.
One for the shadows...
and one for the composition.
But they did finally come to an agreement on only
one winner:

Congratulations to Linda R! Her blog is called: "Linda Letters".
The Judges liked hers for the emotional response it brought...they all said they wouldn't mind sitting there a spell and enjoying the garden and watching the birds in the birdbath!
Again, thanks to all of you faithful readers and photographers for continuing to submit  your photos to this contest.  It is always such fun to see what creative shots you submit and to watch your talents.
Don't forget to submit your photograph into the Sept. 2012

Here They Are! Entries for the FREE PHOTO CONTESTS: Two month's worth: July 2012 (Theme: Red, white and Blue or the USA Flag) and August 2012 FREE PHOTO CONTEST: Theme: Seats, anything to sit on!!

Where did the summer go???

Where was I???

Missing in action, that is for sure.

I realized today that I had not even posted the July 2012 entries for the FREE PHOTO CONTEST
the August 2012 entries either!!

Good grief!

July's theme was:



August's theme for the


SEATS! Anything to sit on!!

we got some interesting, creative entries!

We didn't get as many entries for those two months as usual. (I blame myself! People are probably giving up on this blogger and her contests! LOL) But what we did get in was wonderful, for BOTH months....

Sit back, and enjoy!:

First, the July entries:

This is from Margaret G. Her blog is called: Margaret Gosen 2.

This is from Arti S. Her blog is called: My Yatra Diary.

This is from Muffy. Her blog is called: Muffy"s Marks.

This is from Linda R. Her blog is called: Linda Letters

This is from LindyLouMac. Her blog is called: News from Italy.

Weren't they wonderful???????????????????

And now?

August's entries for the theme of:

Seats, anything to sit on!!:

This is from Linda R. Her blog is called: Linda Letters

This is from Arti S. Her blog is called: My Yatra Diary.

This is from LindyLouMac. Her blog is called: News from Italy.

We only got three entries for August, and again, I feel it is my fault for not posting more blogposts and for not reminding everyone more often during the month because of that confusion of not posting July entries until now.

That being said, PLEASE notify me no later than FRIDAY, SEPT. 10th if you did send me a photo entry for JULY or AUGUST and don't see it above...if I forgot you, I will repost them along with YOUR photo included. IF I don't hear from anyone that I forgot them by Friday, midnight...I will send all of these entries for my Judges to choose both a July winner and and August winner.

Thanks to all you loyal readers who are hanging in there with reading my blog and thanks especially to those of you who have continued to faithfully enter your wonderful entries into the monthly photo contests!!!

Now, you ask....
what on earth is SEPTEMBER 2012's




it is:
