Besides running my own photo challenge site, I participate in quite a few. These are sort of like online photography “contests” often called Photo Memes. I prefer photo challenge, as the themes often keep your photography fresh as you endeavor to do something different, or something you might not have thought to photograph before.

One such site, Who Do You Love, runs theirs a little differently. They keep  tally of how many votes you get, whether you come in first, second, or third, and then they have a winner at the end of the year. The caliber of photography is wonderful and you can imagine my surprise to be announced as the pre-season winner for 2011.

Here is what they have liked over the years, including the year 2011. If you click on the picture name, it will take you directly to the photograph:
