Photo Contest ~ HELP ME WIN!!!!!!!

Jaime Michele Connelly: Click "Collect Me" to help me win $10,000 and a show in the most immense exhibition of art in New York City : Art Takes Times Square.

Hi Friends,
I am entering this contest in hopes of winning!!! It is called "Artists Wanted" @
"Artists Wanted is a collaborative project between several New York City artists and creative organizations working to build new lasting opportunities for emerging talent. We have experienced first hand the difficulties in breaking into the professional art world and it is our mission to make this process more welcoming, dynamic and open-ended.
This is an incredible era for art, photography and design. New paradigms are being explored, boundaries are broken and work is selling at record rates. However, we believe many of the best new artists remain undiscovered. Our job is to get your work seen in the most powerful way possible.
Collectively we have over four decades experience within the New York City art world and our goal is to use our networks and infrastructure to bring undiscovered talent to the forefront. You did the hard part, making great work. Now let us find your audience.
This is your moment to be discovered."

All of your help is greatly appreciated!!!!!

Please let me know if you "collected" me! ;))

I know it has been many many months since I have last post. So much has changed in my life since July 2011.  Almost "everything" has changed. And I promise, I am back.  I am trying everyday to become someone else. Someone I have never been. Doing some things I have never done. And I think it all started with the beginning of this year. It did... January 1st 2012  in Youngstown, Ohio ~ The day I took this photo of the last supper at a cemetery while visiting a very good old friend the first day of this year, in the rain.  I love this photo. It reminds me of change for some reason.  It always represents Beauty to me.  I hope to post more often, so look more often and thank you for looking ;)

Jasmine turned 4 years old!!!!!!!

On June 2nd 2011............She knew exactly what was coming after her steak dinner ! Her Birthday cake! It was four cookies covered in yogurt! She had one on her 2nd birthday as well! I am pretty sure she remembered the taste!

I love that you can see her teeth in this one!!!! She definitely loved it!

OMG I love her to death! Cannot believe she is 4 years old already. Time is flying right by! And she is doing really well (her new knee) considering she had the surgery just 6 months ago! She is my Babas.

Here Comes The Sun... Do Do Do DO :) Here Comes The Sun

I captured this Sunrise coming up over Coatue on the Eagle, Slow Boat .. 6:30 boat. I like how the cloud is rolling in and how the sun is starring.  I do not know how that happens, I guess it is just luck!  I took this with my Wide angle lens on 04/07/2011.   I also love how the light is hitting the water just perfect! Almost like a sunset...

Ladies Beach (aka Fat Ladies Beach) Walk on 03/20/11

I love it out here.  I have been coming to Ladies Beach, well since my then year round local best friend introduced it to me.(1998) Thank you Jen Hallett!!  ;) It has become part of my life, and Jasmine's routine. I am some what fascinated with photographing it at all times of year.  I really hope to be able to photograph the rosa rugosa come up this year.. I am always so busy during the summer,I always forget to make it out to the beach until it dies. Oh it is on my checklist for this year though! In these dunes ... is where they are hiding right now.

Happy Jasmine

Jasmine out on a walk.. she will NOT look at me now with my camera! She has had it! LOL.  this was taken on 03-20-11

Day 208 - Change

Probably one of the favorite pictures I have on the beach in Nantucket. (Ladies Beach in this photo) taken by Keith, My boyfriend... I thought I would post it. It was taken at a new beginning in my life.  I just ended my business with my sister, and started working at Amanda....  I cut all of my hair off ;) This was in 05.. not right now! I felt good... I was fit... and I was happy. I cannot believe that 6 years has almost past since I sat on the beach that day. I feel totally different now than I did then. Obviously! I was what ?? 29!!!! Yes 29... That's why.. After 30.. I have learned so far is not very easy. Many things change. Good and bad.   So that is why I am writing today. It is a fun post.. all kinds of fonts and different colors! Just like me ::)) I am going to change my blog. And I am so appreciative to all who look and reply and leave me feedback.  This makes me and my heart smile. I am ending the evident 365 Photo Project..I am so way behind from last year! LOL I will post though I promise! Maybe write a little more and explain my creativity a little! Do not worry ... You will NOT be disappointed! :) BaBye My 365 Project!!!!!!
