BFF Award

Seems I've been tagged by two fellow bloggers--Rob at Dusty Lens and Maya at Maya Photography--for the BFF (Blogging Friends Forever) Award! Both of these photo bloggers are among my top ten favorite. Rob, because his pictures are exquisite and artistic and Maya, because her pictures are often whimsical and in-the-moment.

Now it's my turn to give the award to other deserving bloggers following these rules:

1. Only five people are allowed.
2. Four have to be dedicated followers of your blog.
3. One has to be someone new or recently new to your blog and live in another part of the world.
4. You must link back to whoever gave you the award.

Of course, I'd like to reciprocate and give this award back to Rob and Maya. I'm also giving a shout out to Marley of Cheltenham Daily Photo on this one, but I'm not going to inundate him with the BFF Award, because I know several other folks have sent this his way. That said, the five people I choose are:

1. Lara of Lara's Welt: Romania and Austria

2. Debi Cates of Debi Cates Photo-a-Day

3. Virginia at Birmingham Daily Photo

4. Eric at Salt Lake City Daily Photo

5. Susie at Jeddah Daily Photo

Thanks, Rob and Maya, for the shout out! And if you haven't visited the bloggers I've listed, please do. You'll find some great photos and beautiful locales!


Lisa Sarsfield Gratitude Award

And speaking of awards and gifts, a few weeks ago, Lisa Sarsfield of Tauranga Daily Photo celebrated her blog's one year anniversary. In recognition of that, she presented some of us with what she calls her Gratitude Award using this picture she posted on her blogiversary. Thank you, Lisa! And may your second year of photo blogging be as fun and successful as your first!

What coincidence...
I did a BFF post this morning and awarded one to you.
Jinx, you owe me a soda!
Just kidding...

Eric: That is hilarious! Thanks for the shout out on your blog. As I said over there, the admiration is mutual. And I'm buying the next time I'm out that way.

DC, what a wonderful new friend you have become. I am so appreciative of this award from you . We have learned a lot from each other haven't we!!! What an extraordinary writer and photographer you are. But most of all, you have such a passion to make things better in our world and you articulate it in such a powerful way. Thank you for setting an example we should all follow.

Maya said...

You are most welcome and deserving. :-)

Lara said...

so, in my process of settling down, here I am paying visits to my blogging friends again :). and what a nice surprise here!!! Thank you so much!

Prof: Thanks!

VJ: The feeling is mutual. I enjoy checking my email every day and finding mail from you! It's been such fun getting to know you and swapping ideas and photos. And thank you for your kind words about my writing and photography. I hope I leave my little corner of the world better than I found it.

Maya: Thank you!

Lara: Don't you love surprises? I choose you as my first BFF blog because yours was one of the first I started reading when I began photo blogging. Add to that the fact that you blog about one of the places I love--Austria--and it inspired me to share my corner of the globe. Thank you for showing us the beauty of Austria and Romania!
