I received an e-mail today from someone from Intel who wanted to give me a heads up on a photo contest that’s being launched this week to promote their new Core Family Processors (the Core i3, i5 and i7).
The contest, “Access Your Core”, allows you to submit your work in one of three categories: Photo, Slide Show or Short Video. The work should depict what is at your “core”, what makes you who you are and what you are passionate about.
Anyway, should be interesting. Especially since the winner in each category receives a new Intel computer with Core processor and a cash prize. So if you’re into photography, why not give it a go?
I may submit the photo above on behalf of my husband. He took it just this afternoon and I don’t know about you but I think it’s pretty good. I love how the white-throated sparrow is in focus and the motion of his wing. My husband has always been passionate about birds and he has been getting into photography lately, so I think this would be a good photo to enter for the theme ‘access your core’.
A male cardinal warms himself in the sun. It went up to 40 something today.
Do you remember that tv show called 30 Something? I watched every single episode of that show. Those people looked so grown up to me at the time and but watching the opening credits just now, well they all look so young . . .
A male slate-colored juncoe looking very sprightly here. My husband took all of the photos in this post using our Nikon D80 and our Quantaray 70-300mm lens. For $100, that lens was one of the better purchases we ever made. It isn’t the greatest but it’s been pretty darn good to us.
Hope your day is a good one. Until tomorrow, then?
