I'm sure you're thinking, haven't I seen that picture like sixteen bajillion times already?!
Sunday was the end of the Monuments of Faith photo exhibit and competition at the Mormon Temple Visitor's Center in Kensington, Maryland. This afternoon, in the midst of wheezing, hacking, and having a headache which was inspiring thoughts and desires of full-blown hari kari, I left the house long enough to go up and pick up my pictures.
I'm delighted to share that my picture of Lincoln at Sunrise officially won a People's Choice Award!
If there was an awards ceremony, I'd stumble up the stairs to the tune of The West Wing. Then I'd gush ridiculously and say silly stuff like "I'd like to thank the feline in my house for always winding through my feet early in the morning while I'm stumbling to the loo. Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Aaaah!"
But seriously, what I do want to say is thanks to my mom for suggesting I enter this contest. And thank you to my friend Sylvia, who's also been pushing me to enter stuff like this. (I just entered DC FotoWeek on her suggestion.) Most importantly, though, I want to thank everyone who visits this blog. I wanted to bring Washington to my friends and family all over the country and the world and, in the process, I've met some really wonderful people showing me their corner of the globe and inspiring me to continue sharing mine. Thank you!
