So this is just a very quick little blog post today, but one I am incredibly proud of! I had a very lovely email from Britmums to tell me that Team Lloyd has made the Shortlist for the PHOTO category for the up coming BiBs that make up part of the Britmums Live 2013.
*Does a happy little dance* Wow! I am so so proud to have made this shortlist, I took up photography last August in an attempt to give me something to learn and concentrate on whilst trying to get over the loss of Harry Lloyd. I brought my first ever SLR and by September had put myself on a photography course to learn to take great photos in manual – and I was hooked!
I am incredibly proud of having started Photo of The Week at the end of November last year, and then having opened it up to the blogging community in January I am overwhelmed weekly that so many lovely people like to join in and showcase their Photo of The Week too. Photography means so much to me, it is a way of capturing and keeping some of the most special memories, of what we as Team Lloyd see and do and how I want to be able to remember everything. I learnt far too well last August that precious moments go far too quickly. A photo captures that moment, be it a snap shot or an arty shot. I love therefore being able to see other people enjoying capturing and showcasing the photo that sums up their week as well. I take pride in visiting every blog, commenting, tweeting it, and pinning it! You can see all the showcased photos from this year so far here.
Photography has been a great way for me to learn to cope with the loss of Harry Lloyd, it has distracted me when I have needed it too, and it has helped me get out there again, meet new people, experience new things and learn new things – so to have been shortlisted in this category has made me a little weepy today!
So the only thing left for me to say is….would you, pretty please, consider popping over and voting me into the final? If you would that would be amazing! There are some other very amazing blog nominated in this category many of whom have inspired me greatly with their photography so please do go give those blogs a visit too!
But if you could vote for Team Lloyd I will love you forever! (Click on this beautiful badge and it will take you to the voting page 🙂 )
