Foto Flip Friday: Follow Your Dreams (The WINNERS!!!)

 
Yipeee! The results of June’s Foto Flip Friday “Follow Your Dreams” theme are IN!

And I must say, I was especially delighted with the wide variety of interpretations of “Follow Your Dreams”.  Everything from discovering the first strawberry in your garden with your toddler, to getting your “kicks” on good ol’ Route 66, to ziplining in Mexico, to meandering the dusty roads of Africa from stem to stern.

Just goes to show that following your dreams needn’t require the grandiose fantasy of being a rock star, nor zooming perpetually ’round the world (though personally, I’ve spent a lifetime trying my darndest to do the latter!)  But the truth is, each of us follows our “bliss” in amazingly different ways. And the important thing is – whatever your dream – just go after it with all your passion, to MAKE.IT.COME.TRUE.

That said, choosing my favorite pics for this month’s theme was a tough decision indeed. And while I’m eventually hoping to somehow add a reader “vote” component (if/when I can figure out the technos of how to half-way easily do that), I figure as this clearly isn’t some highfalutin National Geographic photo competition (with an African safari on the line), my own peculiar druthers as to which I like/feel fit the theme best will have to do.

All of which is to say, I’ve now pondered all the lovely entries and the WINNERS ARE…

(Uh, I think we need a bit of a drum roll here, yes?)

      The thanks are mine, James – a great photo and a fine little story of “Following Your Dreams”.

      Nope, you’re not the only guy who entered (e.g. Four Letter Nerd is a lad too), plus several of the entries are from couples who are following their own brand of bliss.

      Thanks again for your fine entry. Do you have any ideas for future Foto Flip Friday themes?
