It must be award season. I see a lot of people getting them lately and a few people have been kind enough to give me some awards. I hope I haven’t forgotten anyone on this list below.
At the end of last month, Daniel C. Doolan gave me the versatile blogger award. Sorry it took so long to show my appreciation Daniel! He’s got a lot of wonderful travel photos from Europe. Go check out his blog.
In the past week, Jaclyn nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blogger and One Lovely Blog Awards. Shes another iPhoneographer that has found inspiration from my blog. Maybe I should keep a iPhoneography family tree for all of the people I’ve inspired to shoot with their iPhone and see how it grows as they inspire others. If you’re into iPhoneography, go check out her blog and see what shes up to.
Desiree nominated me for the One Lovely Blog award. Thank you Desiree! Have a look at her blog because you know you don’t follow enough iPhoneographers.
Sara (Podnumber2) also was nice enough to mention me when she recently got the One Lovely Blog award. Thanks Sara! Its been fun watching her iPhoneography progress.
I don’t even know how many things I’d have to tell you about myself if I replied to these all individually and followed the rules of the awards. I’ll give you a few and call it good, just so this doesn’t turn into a biography.
- I recently deactivated my Facebook page and am thoroughly enjoying watching their stock tank. Its amazing how much more free time I have when I don’t have to check in on the mundane things people are doing each day.
- I like to listen to the Jim Rome Show almost everyday. Its a pretty entertaining sports talk radio show.
- I’m a perfectionist. It sucks.
- MY favorite TV shows right now are Community and Game of Thrones. New Girl is close because of Zooey Deschannel. I’ve been a fan of hers since her modeling days. I’m a sucker for big eyes.
Now for the video of the elephant seals from my Nikon. I’m not a video guy….yet. I didn’t edit this and add punch like I probably should have. Its seriously lacking contrast and saturation.
There is a lot going on here, so it might take a few views in fullscreen HD to take it all in.
These look like juvenile males practicing their fighting. They bite each other in the neck area a lot, which can get bloody. Then, it heals up and the skin gets thicker, creating a shield of sorts. The boys are pretty territorial, as you can see in the video.
There are also a few babies in the shot. If you’re wondering whats up with some of the seals skin, they’re molting.
