Inside Out

Thank you!

Many moons ago LuckyGirl nominated me for a Liebster Award. I feel honored. Thank you very much!

I have been sitting on this nomination for a while, pondering… I have an allergy to chain letters, and this award certainly has an element of chain letter in it. Then again, it is nice to be recognized by your peers. After 3 years in the making,  just a handful of daily readers find their way to my blog and I have been content with that, as connecting images and words is an important exercise for me to keep myself straight.

However, a recent comment by Lori made me think, why not share this blog with a larger audience? I am not on Facebook, Instagram, or any other of the social media, so this award may be a way for more viewers see my images.

Here we are. I am gratefully accepting LuckyGirls’s nomination. As part of the process I am nominating the following 11 deserving blogs. Every blog had in its own way an effect on me through images or words. Thank you for that! Feel free to visit any of these fantastic hidden gems. You are in for a treat!

  1. The Alaska Range Project – Carl is an accomplished photographer with an amazing collection of images from the Alaska Range.
  2. Canadian Perspectives – Watch my all-time favorite music video. Makes me smile every time.
  3. Salmapaja – Oh my. Fantastic images of Northern Lights, ice, and snow.
  4. Stu ART photo – Minimalist art, enough said.
  5. Le comptoir de Pierre – Paris in Black & White, mostly.
  6. Em’s Life in the Wild – A life of adventure, discovery, and a dash of danger. That’s her story.
  7. Orla O’Muiri – adventure journalism par excellence, read on…
  8. Biking the world – Kyrgyzstan, my dream destination. Can’t wait for their next adventure.
  9. Musherpeg’s Blogwhat it is like to be a musher.
  10. Unexplored Passages – Intense writing.
  11. Teemu Oksanen Fine Art Photography – Last, but not least
