Awhile back I entered a photo contest on one of my favorite websites, Beers & Beans. I figured it’d just be a good chance for me to give something new a shot; I’m not really a photographer (although I wish I were a better one), but I do love basic editing in Picasa and trying to capture little moments around me when I can. So, I entered the contest with little expectations, other than to participate.

I got 2nd Runner Up! 

This is the photo that I posted, which I took during the 2010 Mermaid Parade on Coney Island in New York City. To this day it’s one of my favorite memories from my time in the Big Apple, and I had a hard time choosing among all the photos I had taken from that day.

Congrats to the winner, Pauline! (Her photo was actually my favorite when all the entries were posted…)
