The photo contest to win signed copies of THE HOLLOWS INSIDER and a signed page from the upcoming BLOOD WORK graphic novel is well underway. Today is the cut off for Saladan’s boat pictures, and I’ll have my favorites up for you tomorrow at the website. Today, I’m asking for something a bit less complicated.
Second Photo: It’s Halloween in the Hollows, and I need a picture of people doing something at a party: bobbing for apples (tomatoes), dancing the limbo, jumping out of a coffin and scaring people, anything other than poising for a picture. If your picture includes tomatoes, that’s a plus. If it’s clearly a staged photo to show off costumes, it will not make the cut. The caption is going to read, “Partygoers at the 2005 Festival, bobbing for tomatoes, enjoying the day, watching the parade, or whatever you’re doing in the picture. If it’s taken in the day on the street, even better. The idea here is to show Inderlanders having fun doing something at a party.
I will accept photographs of the Halloween hijinks until Monday noon, EST (May 10th) I’ll post my 3-5 favorite pics at the website so you’ll know if you’re in the running. Prizes, rules, and how to enter are at the website: www.kimharrison.net
On a more personal note, two days plus no rain, multiplied by the weekend equals yard work! And Guy and I rocked! Ow. My hands hurt from the shovel, my arms hurt from the rocks, and my shoulders hurt from the raking, but the yard looks great. I even got a couple of plants in the ground. If I hadn’t been conditioning up since last October, I would be half dead, but as it is, I’m still functioning, even if I’m going to be content to sit on my butt for the next five days and exercise my mind instead.
