Post updates by email:

I know I don’t normally post on Wednesdays, but I suddenly got a fabulous idea the other day. Actually, I stole this fabulous idea from The Pioneer Woman who highlighted photos from her readers on her blog last week. And I can’t tell you how much fun it was to look through all of them.

So, I thought it might be a fun thing to do on my own blog because I know that MANY of you guys and gals share a passion for photography.

And please don’t be modest, because I’ve seen wonderful photographs from all of you.

Okay, here are the guidelines:

-I ask that you email one of your most favorite photographs. It can be of landscapes, people, pets, flowers, anything.

-But no self-nudies, please. I’m saving that for next month - HA!

-I ask that the photo be pre-sized no wider than 575. Height size doesn’t matter.

-Free Online Resizer Lunapic

-Your photo can be enhanced with photo editing, or just as is.

-Color, or black and white.

-Also, please include your name or blog name, and a link you would like me to use when I post your photograph, so I can credit you.

-I will post your photographs in the order in which they are received.

-Deadline for entries will be this Sunday, Sept. 11th before midnight EST.

-My email address can be found by clicking the Contact link below my blog header.

I will post ALL photographs mailed to me. But depending on how many of them I get, I may have to scatter them within the next couple of weeks.

I’m not sure which days I’m going to post the photographs, it’ll just be a surprise.

If you have any questions, feel free to express them in your comments.

Please know that this is not contest, I’m just doing it for fun.

So, come on folks. Don’t be shy. Send your photographs and allow me to show them off for everyone to enjoy!

Thank you.....X

Update: PLEASE remember to include a link when sending your photograph. Thank you so much.

P.S. I will resume my normal posting schedule on Friday.


  1. Oh Gawd... now I have to rack my brains. Shame on you, Ron. Wanders off... muttering..... and sighing.

  2. Oh great idea Ron, I know just the one I want to send to you.:)

  3. Hey Valerie~

    "Oh Gawd... now I have to rack my brains. Shame on you, Ron. Wanders off... muttering..... and sighing."

    Oh, you can do it. You can do it!

    I have TONS of wonderful photos from your travels.

    Just pick one of your favs!


  4. Good Morning Akelamalu~

    Awesome! Can't wait to see it!

    Glad your sending me one.


  5. i love joining in the fun. Thanks for the invitation to play along, you sweetie pie :)

  6. Hey there Diane~

    GREAT! I was so hoping you'd share one of your wonderful photographs. Yipeeeeeeeee!



  7. Sounds like fun but I'm gonna have a hard time deciding! Thanks more thing to think about! LOL

    P.S. I'm not sure how to "size" the photograph....

  8. Hiya Peg~

    Woot! Woot!

    I'm so glad you're going to send a photo to share because you've got so many wonderful shots!

    Just choose the one that speaks to your heart the most.

    One way you can "size" a photo is to upload it to your blog, 'as if' your were creating a blog post (size it using the editing program in WP) and then when you preview the post, just right click your mouse over the photo and safe it to your computer.

    If not, just email the photo to me in its original size, then I'll resize it before I publish it.

    Not a problem.

    Thanks, dear friend. Looking forward to seeing your photo.


  9. P.S. Peg!

    Here's a link to a free online photo editor where you can resize your photo. It's such a cool website because it allows you to do all sorts of things with our photos. Check it out.


  10. I can think of two right off the top of my head so I'll look at 'em again and pick the best one!

    An honor to be part of "The Vent Gallery"!

  11. Hey there Nitebyrd~

  12. OK, I'll have to think about this a bit. Do I go for the technically better photograph or a pleasant photograph? I've got hundreds to choose from - This is hard :)

    It's a great idea.

  13. Hey Babs~

    Yabba-dabba doo! I was so hoping you'd send a photograph!

    Thank you for participating....X

  14. She has hundreds.........I have thousands.....


    Now ya KNOW I get squeamish about this kinda thing. I start to do the old 'geeze.......I want people lookin' at this crud......' and talk myself out of it.

    It's enough I post what I like at 'home'.....I know why I like it, why I put it there and what it says to me.

    I love your photos! They're okay--some....


    I'll go to the naughty corner. LOL
    And I'll envy Babs who has hundreds.
    I had to get an external drive to store mine on..twice!

    OMG.....I'm a freak.......LOLOL


  15. Hiya Mel~

    "Now ya KNOW I get squeamish about this kinda thing. I start to do the old 'geeze.......I want people lookin' at this crud......' and talk myself out of it."

    Hey listen, I'm not going to try and persuade you to send me one your photos if you don't want to, I'll leave that totally up to you. But, I still can't allow this to go by without saying....

    You are such a naturally gifted lady with the camera. Often I look at your photos and think they should be in a magazine because they're so beautifully composed. Truly Mel, you have such a wonderful eye for the camera.

    If you change your mind and decide that you would like to share one of your photos, I would be honored and excited to share it here.

    Think about it, dear lady.

    (((( Mel )))))


    P.S. Thanks for stopping by!

  16. What a cool idea. I can't wait to see everyone photos!!

  17. But Mel, I mean hundreds in my 'photography' folder. I also have gazillions in my other folders. Thousands of cats, people, walks etc., etc. Mine go back over 40 years. I'm not even going to think about all of those :)
