435

As you know, a few months ago I bought a Nikon D90. (Please let me know if I talk about it too much or if its getting in between our relationship). I was online a while ago and decided I would look to see if I could find any photo contests. It made sense to try and profit from my latest purchase. After searching for a while, I found a local competition put on by The Mid-America Regional Council. Don't ask me what they're all about, but they had advertised a photo contest with "Transportation" as the category. They were looking for pictures of what we valued as far as transportation goes in KC. I browsed my iphoto library in search of a fitting picture and decided upon this one:
That was back in December, and I just heard back from them last week letting me know I had won first place in my category and would be sent my "free night stay in the Overland Park Marriott Hotel" in the mail.

Interesting prize. Whats even more interesting is that you can see the hotel in the background of my picture. Now comes the question...what to do with my complementary stay in the Marriott. Stay tuned for the decision.

you're not even that good. i could have drawn a better picture using only natural dyes produced from the species in my yard.
