“You like me! You REALLY like me!”


In April, blogger Mel Mann REALLY MADE MY DAY!

I have not been so fortunate as fellow bloggers Joanna and Deb Platt to recently sell one of their photos featured on WordPress. But I am currently blessed with 110 readers who are really and truly sold on following my contribution to the world of photography!

Since October of last year, I have been honored with one Blog on Fire Award, one Very Inspiring Blogger award, two One Lovely Blog awards … And I’m a three-time winner of the Versatile Blogger award.

The ultimate compliment came from reader Mel Mann of Mel Mann Photography  when he compared my photo titled Redbud Forest to one by a renowned photographer! I felt like actress Sally Field after winning an Oscar at the Academy Awards!

On April 25, Mel Mann commented: “Very nice. Check out Eliot Porter’s redbud in bottom land image – easy to find online. Much like your shot it shows how something simple can be very beautiful.”

In a quick Google search, I found Porter’s photo titled Redbud Trees in Bottom Land on the Metropolitan Museum of Art website!

I’d like to thank the WordPress Academy, namely photographer Novie (twice), aspiring writer Ray, designer-illustrator Anne, freelance illustrator Sophia, photographers Tania and OneLifeThisLife, and MEL for their recognition and validation!

  1. Beautiful composition, Sheila! No wonder that your pictures was compared with a renowned photographer. Keep it up! 😉

    1. Appreciate your comment, Karen. I may have read too much into Mel Mann’s compliment because Porter’s photo is quite exceptional. But such a compliment from Mann, himself and very accomplished photographer, was very encouraging and flattering!
