I have been spending some time tinkering around at Pinterest – a sort of pin board site – discovering photographs I really like and storing them away for future reference.
I figure some day, when I have the time (raises eyes to the sky) I will take a photo just like one of them. An homage.
I adore some of the portrait shots on there – kids, grandparents, families, friends, strangers. People whose faces are steeped in history or children whose faces show potential and a lifetime ahead of them.
So this week’s theme is simply: Faces.
And because I’d love for you to have time to do this and think about it and enjoy, I’m giving you an extra week to create it. It also means I get to take a week off!
So come back here on Wednesday, October 26th and join in the fun.
AND for all your hard work I have the most fabulous prize.
I have a Kodak Pulse Digital Frame up for grabs, worth £164.99. I have one of these and it’s brilliant. BRILLIANT I tell you.
This 10-inch touchscreen frame has it’s own custom email address so you can easily send any new photos you take directly to it. No faffing around with memory cards or dongles or installing software.
It stores up to 4,000 pictures with 512MB of internal memory and you can even set up ‘playlists’ of your favourite photos.
You can buy one for grandma who lives 100 miles away, set it all up for her and when you get a new photo of her grandkids, you just email it across and it appears on her Kodak frame. You can even email it across when you’re out and about.
I think it’s positively genius.
I reviewed one of these a while back and absolutely LOVE it, so I specifically asked Kodak if they’d be up for giving one as a prize on The Gallery.
THAT is how much I love you guys!
The winning entry will be chosen by a guest judge who will be looking at the words AND the photo to find their winner.
Rules n stuff.
The competition is open to residents of the UK only (sorry rest of the world).
No cash alternative offered.
The winner will be chosen from the Linky after the closing date for entries which is 08:00 on Tuesday, November 1, 2011.
The winner will be asked to provide a full UK postal address with postcode. Please allow 14 days for delivery.
If a prizewinner does not provide a full UK postal address within a week of being contacted, a new winner will be contacted.
Remember, The Gallery isn’t about technically brilliant photos. It’s about rediscovering photos; both old and new.
It’s about finding excuses to use them again, sparking your imagination, inspiring.
And absolutely ANYONE can join in.
Come back on Wednesday, October 26 to add your link when The Gallery post goes up. Then visit as many of the other entries as you can to see what they’ve come up with.
The link stays open for a week so it doesn’t matter if you can’t post on Wednesday.
You will get out of this what you put into it.
