a giveaway for the new year

Monday, November 23, 2009

As the new year creeps up on us and I figure out ways to have some of my own photos around the house, I decided to pick some of my favorites and put them together in a little calendar.

You can get a copy of the calendar yourself over here, if you would like, but I also have one extra copy to give away to one of you! All you need to do is leave a comment on this post by December 5th and I will pick one winner out of all the comments.

on montague - 2010 calendar

If you feel inspired to tell others about this giveaway on your blog or on Twitter (you can follow me over here), you'll get an extra entry. Just make sure you let me know!

In the meantime, I'm checking out of this space for a short little while to lounge out on a beach.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

amyjoon - your photos inspire me to take more photos - the colours, the compositions, the unique perspectives, the bokehs, the moods, feeelings, tasts, they convey - love them all and would love to include them in my daily, monthly, and yearly planning for 2010 :)

Mr. Murrell said...

I love the photos. What kind of camera do you use? I have resisted buying one. I continue to rely on a mini-megapixel camera phone that make everything but the brightest and closest look like schmutz.

Ooooh I hope I win!

CreativiTime said...

Yay, I'm so glad you decided to leave a comment on my blog. Because now, I have another blog to drool over! Love the images contained here. I will be lurking and bookmarking your blog!!

melly said...

Picture 11 is my favourite out of the beautiful lot! Your bokeh shot is simply out of this world, almost reminds me of cool imagery of bacteria. Not icky bacteria! I hope you know what I mean. It simply look unreal, not something I'd know how to replicate.

Katie Spankins said...

As the birds gazed upon the distance...
The drops gathered 'neath my window
gardening tools at hand
i took in perfume of white delight
While remembering the cherry blossoms
Which reminded me of my breakfast at Dawn...
Surrendering to the heat of summer
With blues-and-white covering our naked upperness
as we ran with diapers-only across the meadow...
No need to re-think the greensleaves tune,
For on the Brooklyn Bridge we gazed
Through branches of golden leaves
A tower of intertwined love we found...
(A love so precious...
That we had to make a calendar out of it and send it to Muni!!!)

Gillian said...

Wow Amy! A years' worth of your beautiful photography? I fear I'm too far away and nomadic to win, but should I be randomly chosen, I will nominate a worthy recipient. xo

Dionne said...

How gorgeous! What a lovely prize!

Valery said...

Thanks for the chance to win this beautiful calendar. It's georgous.
