Entering the Hall of...



About 1½ week ago, blogfriend Rae had a post about the Price of Fame, starting her text with the phrase "I am famous." Now when I suddenly find myself in similar position, it is causing me considerable problems to find a way of telling you this without copying her introduction! (How am I doing so far?)

You might object that if I were really famous, you would already know that, and I should not have to tell you. But if you feel the need to argue with me about my fame, then I obviously do have to inform you, don't I? Therefore I proceed...

Today I received (primarily for my DawnTreader's Picture Book) a Blog of the Week Award from someone I don't know, and whose blogs I actually never came across until he gave me the said award -which, by the way, does not even come with stipulations, just a lot of kind words, including appreciation of my other blogs as well.

Can you come up with a better definition of 'famous' than being known by people you don't know!?

Check out Brett @ 365 TO 42 (link to the award post) ...
I'm certainly going to do so, because even first glance tells me I'll want to see more of his photography!

I've put the award-picture in the Awards list at the bottom of the page in my photo blog, but I can't resist showing it off here as well:

Dawn Treader...I have been following Brett's blog and he is a fantastic photographer...for him to recognize your blog...I would think is a real honor. Congrats and you deserve it.

Thank you all for your comments.

And yes, Dan, it really did not take me more than a first glance at Brett's blog to convince me that he is a very talented photographer... so I really do feel very honoured!

I also noticed that Wood and Pixels was also on Brett's Blog of the Week list just recently, which is far less of a surprise than how I came to be... ;) My "first glance" also immediately reminded me of your pictures (use of the HDR technique in some).

I also suspect this might explain how my blog came under his eye in the first place... From being on YOUR blog list, rather than just from some random search...
