My borrowed SLR has returned to its owner, so I was flicking through my archives to try and find a photo that summed up how I feel right now, and these vintage wooden “woot” blocks on my bookcase were the closest I came.
See, this blog is one of five finalists in the Best Photoblog category at the Irish Blog Awards, and I couldn’t be more surprised, delighted and humbled. I didn’t even have the cheek to nominate myself (a photo blog by a camera-less photographer seems like an unlikely horse to put a punt on!), so this is a lovely surprise, made even sweeter by the fact that I was heading up to the awards anyway (with some very lovely ladies).
I am now even more excited about the event, and about meeting the other nominated photogs. If you like truly gorgeous photography, do check out these blogs:
(p.s. The wood blocks were bought from Blue Bazaar, a great little Etsy shop, and the book, a first edition Enid Blyton one about a traveling circus, was a a very amazing present, picked up at Cathach Books, on Duke Street.)
