Awards and Features
Gold Star Award
This week’s Gold Star Award is granted to Dennis from A Trivial Mind At Work blog. Dennis is a wonderful photographer and I have enjoyed his blog for quite a while now. Here is what he said about this beautiful zinnia flower photo. This odd zinnia drew me to take many pictures! It had so much going just in and of itself that I wanted very little in the background. I used a few leaves in the corner to give a sense of a flower in the garden but left nothing else to draw away focus.
Note: CCY Gold Star Award is awarded to one blogger each week and have at least one their photos displayed. To be eligible for the Gold Star Award you need to have completed the extra credit for the week.
