I was just informed that my "comments" were restricted to Google users alone and that if I opened that up I might see more comments. Well, I very much appreciate the advice especially since my restrictions were less than intentional. I just opened it up to anyone and we will see what happens from here.
I was also asked how I fared in the Photowalk contest and if there was a way to see the other participants' work. First of all there was only one Springfield winner and it was not myself. But I enjoyed it thoroughly. Secondly, you can find some of the other Springfieldian work at this site http://www.flickr.com/groups/1153880@N20/ and you can see the Worldwide work at http://www.flickr.com/groups/skphoto/. The Worldwide winner has not been announced yet but you can see the local winner at Mike Young's website (he was the walk leader for Sprinfield) http://ozarkphotos.blogspot.com/2009/07/world-wide-photo-walk-springfield_3353.html.
