A Special Award From a Far Away Land

Susie of Jeddah Daily Photo gave me an award. Susie has a neat site and she is located in Saudi Arabia so there are a lot of neat views of that area of the world. The Van Gogh’s Ear Award is for Outstanding Artistic Achievement in art, photography, writing, philosophy, comedy, and/or blogging. Since Van Gogh cut off his ear, it can be passed around. Thank you Susie for the honor. I would like to pass this on to:

1. Jo from Texas even though she doesn't post award because of her neat art blog. Maybe she will like this one because of the artist.

2. Michele from British Columbia for her wonderful photo blog.

3. Tina from PA for her neat bird photos.

4. Becky from South Carolina for her neat writing blog.


This was a artistic sky I took on 1/1/09. I did nothing with the colors and this is what the camera saw. You can see the blue in the sky at the bottom left of the photo. I remember a grey sky.

Michele said...

Congratulations on the award ... you SO deserve it and I appreciated it you mentioning my blog.

That sky is AWESOME... it is referred to a mackerel sky.
The phrase "mackerel sky" came from the fact that it looks similar to the markings of an adult king mackerel. What a WONDERFUL capture of this beautiful sight.

The sky shot is neat. Looks cold!
Congratulations on the award. And thank you for passing it along. I'll have to admit it was a little strange for an award until you explained, then it made all kinds of sense.
By the way, I love the Craig Morgan song, "Tough" you have playing. He's one of my favorites.

What a neat award and unusual too. Congratulations!
I like the sky picture. To me the best photos are the ones that haven't had a lot of touching up.

This Ear award reminds me of Old Joe who cut his ear off whilst working a saw in the wood yard...... everyone was very concerned and started to look in the sawdust for Joe's ear....
. "Here you are," someone said, "I've found it." Old Joe looked at it. "No, that's not my ear he said, "Mine had a pencil behind it"

Well done on getting the award....
