A Call for Help

I can't decide what my top 5 or even top 10 pictures are from the posted 19. I did narrow it down from about 50 pictures taken since January 2008. Please leave a comment with your top 5 pictures and help me narrow down my submissions for Everyday Photo for Simple Scrapbooks due August 6th.

Here is the criteria to guide you.

What everyday scenes are a part of your regular routine? We want to see photos of your real, everyday, unposed life.Eating breakfast, walking the dog, working away in your office cubicle, chatting on the phone, shoveling snow, baking, playing dress-up with the kids, helping with homework, watching television in your pajamas. Send us photos of whatever it is you do all day for a chance to be published in our January/February Focus on Photos column.

You might be asking what's in it for you? Well, how about a copy of The Last Lecture for yourself or to give as a gift? Please submit your comments by 10PM CST so I have time to ponder and submit to Simple Scrapbooks. I'll have Garrett pick a random someone from the comments tomorrow morning.

OK. All great but here are my picks 1, 8, 9, 13. Second place to 7 & 11. For the theme I think the one in the car seat or one of M and G are the best, but love the stove picture to. I actually have a top favorite, but will only give that info if you need it after getting all the comments.
Good Luck, Lisa P

Great Pictures. I love number 13. So my choices are 11, 9, 4, 13 and 8. Good luck and I hope one of these gets published. Karen B.

I like them all, and I definitely have my favorites. But for representatives of everyday life, I'm going with 4, 5, 9, 12, and 13.

Good luck!

Katherine said...

9 and 14 are great slice of life shots.

Good luck, kerrypez

Such a hard choice; there are so many good ones! It was difficult to narrow it down to five favorites. 1, 4, 9, 11, 12 or 17 for everyday pics. 8 is adorable and 13 is the sweetest picture, but I'm not sure if they would be considered everyday. Beautiful pictures :)
Good luck!!

elinjanne said...

Love all of them. I have noe idea what these people are looking for, but here is my favourites;
9-19-1-11-13. I am still laughing at the cat. That was awesome. Number 13 is a great photo, maybe to good? There is something aboute number 9. The light is great...a boy and his dad doing the dishes, and they don`t seem to be posing...
Hard choise - good luck.

I like a lot of them but 4, 9, 11, 12, 13 are my faves for an "everyday life" theme. Good luck!

Missy said...

Okay, I couldn't just pick 5!! They are so all everyday for you :)

1, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 13

Maybe that at least helps to narrow down...

hi - julie from HMF
hard choice - he's adorable but there's something about the challenge that made me go with the ones where he wasnt looking at the camera and you just captured a moment !
so i vote for 8,9,11,12 and 15 as great everyday shots - also love 3 & 14. good luck choosing :>

Wow! These are great pics and I can see why you're having such a hard time choosing. My favorites are 8 and 11 (the look on the cat's face is priceless . . . would be good on a pet submission), but I also like the one with the two boys in the grass and the one at the sink, oh yes . . . and #1. Ah! I like them all!

Debbie P said...

This was not easy. These photos are fantastic! I would have to go with 9, 12, 13, 15, 17. I can't imagine how hard it's been for you to pick, because it was tough for me & I'm not emotionally attached! Good luck

This is the first time I've ever posted to a blog; feels a little weird!

I think numbers 4,8,9,12,and 18 for your "contest". All really good pictures, though, Ms. Photographer.

I liked 4, 5, 9, 13, 19 and think 11 with the cat's eyes popping out like "your're squishing me" is hilarious!

Don't overthink this. Just go with your gut.

Good luck!!

TJ said...

Hard to choose but I think 4, 8, and 12 would be my top three.

OK, I love 11, 13, 19, 8 and 5. the one you've got at the top is my favorite-good choice and what a picture!

seems like you've got a lot of different opinions to pick from, huh? go with your gut!!

Love, Heather

Monica --
These are fabulous photos! While I am partial to #3 for obvious reasons, these are the five I would submit:

#1 Target bag, sleeping in car
#8 Kissing (the microwave?) and waiting
#9 Dishes (LOVE this)
#13 Laying in the grass

This is probably for our March/April issue -- or maybe Jan/Feb. Did the call say? Think about seasonality when you submit.

You are a winner in my book -- too bad I don't make these selections anymore!
