I post five Washington DC photos on Instagram every day. It's rather easy because we walk every morning and there is always something that captures my interest. Along with those, I add one digital image of a portrait that I am just starting, working on, or finishing. It's one of many social media sites I try to keep up with. Yesterday I received a notice on Instagram if I was interested in winning a $100 prize for a window box beauty contest sponsored by hooks and lattice. All I had to do was respond "yes" on the image that was noticed. It's of a grey townhouse/rowhouse that really stuck out a few weeks back because of the several matching window boxes on both stories, and the well manicured flower arrangements contrasting against the house color. First of all I am flattered that they noticed! I'm sorry I didn't know about this earlier because the weekly contests end on September 29. Now I'll need to keep my eyes peeled for window boxes. It would be a treat to win, but getting noticed was just as good!
