An Award

I have decided to give an award to my favourite blogging photographers. When I first started blogging and looking at Blogs it was the excellence of people’s photos that attracted me. Nowadays I am equally interested in the writing but every now and then a particular photo reminds me how many brilliantly talented amateurs there are out there.

The recipient is welcome to display it on their blog but is equally welcome not to do so. There is no passing on or writing deep secrets necessary. It is simply an acknowledgement from me of how much I have appreciated the person’s photographs.

I have decided to give the award to one person every Sunday until I run out of folk to give it to. So this is my first awarding of the Photographic Excellence Award.

And the first person is Jen of Jennifer Photography and My Moments. Jen hails from the USA.

I decided that each time I made the award I would direct readers to a particular photo that captured my attention. Gosh, I hadn’t anticipated how hard it would be to choose just one. In the end I chose this one for Jen but really I would simply recommend a trip back through Jennifer Photography to get an idea of the breadth and depth of her skill at finding subjects and capturing atmosphere. Thank you, Jen, for all the enjoyment you have given me.



  1. What a wonderful idea! I agree that Jen deserves the first award - her photos are brilliant, so crisp and clear.

  2. Scriptor, I have tears in my eyes. I feel so incredibly honored by this. I will proudly display this award, and cannot express my gratitude, not only for being chosen (and the first!), but also for your kind words.

    Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

    And, Pauline, a warm, heartfelt Thank you to you too, your comment here is very sweet.

  3. I can certainly see why you are impressed with her photography. The photo you chose is outstanding.

  4. That's what an award should be like. Given to people who deserve it from one who appreciates them, and without extra tasks to be done. Congratulations Jennifer!

  5. Talk about lions and mouths. Hope you know what you are doing.
    Like judging the jam at the village fete.

  6. Sorry to hear you are below par. I have been on a trip to Jen's place and ended up on her story of the rabbit. Her photo's are great, so the award was well deserved.

    Get well soon

    Love Granny

  7. You are one sweet and wonderful man, Scriptor!! What a blessing. Jen was one of my first finds in blogland, and has become like a younger sister to me. Her photography is definitely worth this very first award given.


  8. Well deserved. Jen is a great photographer, and always such a variety of subjects.
