I have exciting news! Many of you know that throughout the spring and early summer I was participating in the annual Exposure Award photography competition for the Vox Populi Award. To be eligible for the Vox Populi Award and be displayed for one night event at the Louvre Museum in Paris my photos needed 100 comments and 100 votes from the public. Thanks to all the lovely support from my wonderful friends, family, and strangers I exceeded well over the needed amount and won! The judge panel chose my praying mantis shot for the animal collection and on July 13th at the Exposure private event held at the Louvre, my photo was a part of the digital display. I was so happy and grateful to have been given this opportunity! It has been such a blessing.
