The Versatile Blogger Award

Much to my surprise and appreciation I have been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award, by Dounia, at The Next Stop. Thank you very much!

As much I enjoy posting my own work for people to look at, it is equally enjoyable and inspiring to view other people’s blogs. There are lots of talented people out there.

Each award comes with a set of rules, so here they are for the Versatile Blogger Award:


1. Add the Versatile Award photo on a blog post

2. Thank the award-giver and link back to them in your post.

3. Share 7 things about myself.

4. Pass the award along to 15 favorite bloggers.

5. Contact the chosen bloggers to let them know about the award.

Seven things about myself:

1. I only used to take photos of landscapes so I could turn them into pastel drawings and paintings. I found I enjoyed the photography more.

2. I’ve visited lots of great places including Rome, Paris, New York  and Bruges.

3. I’m married and we have a 3.5 year old daughter.

4. I have a degree in Exercise Science.

5. I love to read, but struggle to write. It takes me ages to think of the words for my posts.

6. My favourite food is pasta.

7. I get camera envy, especially when I see top line cameras being used like disposable ones.
